U.S. Nuclear Weapons in Canada’ is a follow on to John Clearwater’s earlier work, ‘Canadian Nuclear Weapons: The Untold Story of Canada's Cold War Arsenal’. This 1999 follow-up contains information that had just been released on the negotiations, storage and eventual withdrawal of the nuclear weapons stored on Canadian soil for use by the United States armed services in case of war.

Considering the complexity of the various agreements between Canada and the US involving this topic, it is hard to fathom that our armed forces ever acquired as many nuclear weapons as it did for its own defence and offensive use.

As with his earlier work, Clearwater shows a tremendous depth of research within the pages of this book. Once again, it is a ‘must read’ for any Canadian military historian. Oh, and once again, prepare to be surprised by the content.

The reader will be left wondering how Canada’s squeaky-clean ‘peace-keeping’ image ever came about, considering the quantity of nuclear weaponry laying around the country
