Though we face many threats of various kinds today, and geopolitical instability, it seems, will always be with us, it nonetheless can sometimes be difficult to remember that just a couple of decades ago we lived with the much more terrifying prospect of actual nuclear war.
This booklet will instantly help us remember. Published by the British government in 1980 to educate the public about nuclear war and its aftermath, Protect and Survive warns citizens that no part of the United Kingdom would be safe in the event of a nuclear war. It explains how people can plan for survival in advance, how they can recognize signs of imminent attack, and what they should do in the immediate and longer-term aftermath of an attack. Chilling in its straightforwardness, Protect and Survive is a uniquely stark reminder of that all-too-recent era.
Imperial War Museums is a British national museum organization with branches at five locations in England, three of which are in London. It is a leading authority on conflict and its impact.
