The Effects of Nuclear War, a study by the Congress of the United States, is an in-depth look at the results of a nuclear conflict involving single cities and a general conflict, on both the United States and the Soviet Union. The study takes a careful look at damage assessment and survivability in limited and full war scenarios, along with the long term effects to both the population base and the economy in general.

I would certainly recommend this book for the military historian, especially anyone with an interest in the Cold War, with the caveat that the information provided has been superseded by more up to date information on the power and accuracy of weapons involved.

Keeping that in mind, it makes for an interesting, if dry, read, and shows the thought processes of the time.

Interesting analysis of the potential effects of a nuclear ware between the USSR and the USA. This scenario is out of date but the information is applicable to a nuclear strike or a terrorist attack (likely a lesser damage event). Much was evidently learned from the effects of the bombs in Nagasaki and Hiroshima. The book outlines various potential scenarios and gives a short narrative of a fictional event. It is interesting. I hope I never have to use the knowledge gained from the book. ( )
