Reading; Command and Control:Nuclear Weapons, The Damascus Incident and The Illusion of Safety

The book “Command and Control:Nuclear Weapons, The Damascus Incident and The Illusion of Safety” is by Eric Schlosser. I’m only about a quarter the way through the book but it’s fascinating.

It tells the story of a dropped nuclear weapon and the aftermath of it, plus the history of nuclear weaponry. Right now the book is in about the mid 1950’s when little itty bitty thermonuclear bombs were around and missiles still exploded on the launch pad, at least in the United States.

I’m utterly fascinated by the technology advancements of the 20th century from WW II on. It was an era that shaped this modern world we live in.
