The Doomsday Scenario - $1 (Havelock)

The Doomsday Scenario by Douglas Keeney

This chilling 1958 Cold War defense document lays the foundation for how Bush, Cheney and Congress reacted to the September 11th attack on America. Under government wraps for forty years, "The Emergency Plans Book" was de-classified in 1998 and moved to the public viewing area of the National Archives. Months later the document was re-classified, hidden from public view once again, and stamped Top Secret. Candid archival photographs accompany an intriguing text that chronicles the recently re-classified "Plans Book," the highly secret official answer to the most important Cold War defense question of the day: "What happens to America if the Soviet Union attacks?" The Emergency Plans Book, included here in its entirety, provides dramatic new insights into cold war practices, and what might happen in the event of a total nuclear war. This extremely sensitive government document contains a pointed foreword by nationally known and respected atomic weapons authority Stephen I. Schwartz.***Here is what critics say about"The Doomsday Scenario: The US Government's answer to the Cold War question:" Newsweek: This Pentagon document "coldly details the damage a nuclear attack on the US would do."Salon.com: "extraordinary insight into the military mindset."Publishers Weekly: "promises to raise hairs and possibly red flags."'
