Read in January, 2007

Well, this one was made in the 1980's so naturally the apocalyptic nuclear destruction scenario in it largely reflects the decade's fears and so. It also includes some fairly provocative stuff especially for the American reader, but that I would see to be the point of the book, at least partly.

It is decent enough in terms of story and depiction of the events and characters, although in certain parts the story elements seem too far-fetched at least for current standards. Although, to me it does seem certain that this book was ultimately created to discourage the arms race and nuclear production of weapons, which were so feared especially in the 1980's. So, you know - Warday is partly a warning and partly a provocative attempt at stopping the cold war from going hot.
