It was such a pleasure to read it again: a timeless classic.
This book, written during that same time period as the movie FailSafe, when Cold War fears were upppermost, so that US citizens were building bomb shelters in their back yards and stocking them with provisions, captures the tension around this nationwide fear of atomic war. Excellently written, this apolitical novel portrays the drama of a coup attempt against the US presidency because of the furor caused by a nuclear disarmament treaty.
This compelling page-turner, highly recommended, was made into an excellent movie of the same name, starring Burt Lancaster, also highly recommended.
