about

Civil defence was an integral part of Britain’s modern history. Throughout the cold war it was a central response of the British Government to the threat of war. This book is the first history of the preparations to fight a nuclear war taken in Britain between the end of the Second World War and 1968.
MATTHEW GRANT is University Teaching Associate in Modern British History at the University of Sheffield, UK.
