How To Survive An Atomic Attack : A Cold War Manual
The Soviet Union detonated its first nuclear bomb in 1949, heralding the era of the Cold War in which the prospect of thermonuclear attack and assured mutual destruction put every man, woman and child in the firing line. The US government issued a series of booklets which explained how to protect your family, food and water supply and your home. Survival Under Atomic Attack provides practical advice on how to construct a backyard shelter from plywood and covered with earth. A second publication, Fallout Protection is a more straightforward explanation of the dangers of a nuclear attack. This collection concludes with the Family Shelters Series which provides detailed drawings and specifics on a range of home-built shelters, above and below ground.
