Description

Official US government advice on how to survive an atomic attack - including full instructions on building your own nuclear shelter. In 1949 the Soviet Union detonated its first nuclear bomb, heralding the era of the Cold War in which the prospect of a thermonuclear attack and Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) put every man, woman and child in the firing line. The US government issued a series of booklets explaining how to protect your family. This compilation includes Survival Under Atomic Attack with practical advice on constructing a shelter, the Family Shelters Series containing detailed construction diagrams, and Fallout Protection, a straightforward explanation of the dangers of a nuclear attack. Together they provide a chilling insight into the realities of life under the threat of Armageddon.
