Editorial Reviews

?This is an excellent, well-written, and dispassionate analysis of nuclear weapons strategies by two experts in the field. The authors examine American and Soviet strategic nuclear forces and strategies and then, with the assistance of a computer, simulate realistic models of a strategic war between the two. Their data are accurate and their tables are helpful, as is the glossary. The book is well researched and stimulating, with extensive references and bibliography. A provocative afterword provides an interesting and challenging war game created by the authors and first played by a group of students at St. Anselm College. It is a timely simulation exercise that places the players in the roles of the decision makers. This is a book that deserves to be in university as well as professional libraries. It will also serve as a valuable text in graduate and advanced undergraduate courses of strategic and national defense. The authors deserve to be congratulated on a job well conceived and well executed.?-Choice
