Stratégie De L'âge Nucléaire
Stratégie De L'âge Nucléaire
By General P. Gallois
Calmann-Lévy,, 1960, 238 pp

General Gallois is among those military thinkers who are making a serious effort to think through the full implications of nuclear power for a viable strategy that will neither set off an accidental war nor leave the West powerless. He sees the precariousness of the "equilibrium of terror" and also the impossibility of trying to sidestep this fateful development of our times. As M. Aron says in his preface, the author writes with an "esprit à la fois de géométrie et de finesse."
