St. Martin's Press, 1993
224 pp. $45.00

A book that is exactly what it seems-a good, short, reliable and straightforward account of how nuclear weapons became "America's first line of defense." Based on primary sources, this is an account of high-level decision-making and very much in the mold of traditional strategic history.
