This book is a surprisingly useful reference tool for anything in the Cold War, a historical snapshot of US nuclear and post-nuclear strategy in 1983-84 and an essential reference to anyone interested in that time period. Written in a breezy, accessible style, it's quite readable while also being horrifying, in that usual Cold War way.

Comprehensive layout of exactly what the United States had (likely still has) planned for the aftermath of a nuclear war.

Pretty interesting relic of 80s era nuclear strategizing. Not too bogged down in jargon, etc.
