Command and Control blends the minute-per-minute story of an accident at a missile silo in rural Arkansas, where a single crew fought to prevent the explosion of the most powerful nuclear warhead ever built by the United States, with a historical story spanning more than 50 years.It represents the urgent effort to ensure that nuclear weapons cannot be stolen, sabotaged, used without authorization, or inadvertently activated.Schlosser is also interested in the Cold War from a new perspective, offering history of the earth, telling the stories of bombers pilots, missiles commanders, maintenance teams, and other military personnel who risked their lives to avoid a nuclear holocaust.Drawing on recently declassified documents and interviews with men who designed it and used to deal with nuclear weapons, Command and Control takes the reader into a frightening but fascinating world that, until now, has been largely hidden from view.
