Stockpile: The Story Behind 10,000 Strategic Nuclear Weapons

Customer Reviews:

Must read for international nuclear arms policy development

By CSM "BioConversion Blog" - October 7, 2010

To appreciate the full dimensions of the Cold War it is necessary to understand the military, industrial, and political chronology that surrounded the development and massive deployment of nuclear weapons. What was going on within the secret halls of the Pentagon, SAC headquarters, the White House, and Congress? What fears and distrust were at the heart of the horrific run-up of the U.S. nuclear weapons arsenal - from a handful at the time of Hiroshima to over 10,000 by the end of Reagan's presidency? How potent were these weapons and how are they currently deployed? Are there any limits to their destructive power? What were the targets and why? What plan redundancies were unnecessary and more the product of vain rivalries and political advantage than responsible management? What more can be done to defuse the global stockpile and still dissuade rogue nations from threatening global stability with nuclear weapons development? This non-fiction book provides some answers.

STOCKPILE The Story Behind 10,000 Strategic Weapons

By Janet Russell Hitt - October 22, 2010

An extraordinary book! This is a dynamic education for the
citizens of our country and of the world. Nuclear weaponry,
not global warming, remains the greatest threat to mankind
and the survival of our planet. Forever veiled in secrecy,
it has been difficult to understand the true nature of this
threat, so horrible that it has become unmentionable.

Vice Admiral Miller, with great courage, gives us a rare
insight into the policies and practices of our political
and military leaders since the dawn of the nuclear age.
He shares with us his long and dedicated experience in
weaponry development and effectiveness as directed by
those at the highest levels of government. He has brought
to life a true picture of the personalities and values of
all involved. It is the real world!

"Stockpile" should be required reading at all levels of
society. It is more than just education, it is our lives
and our... read more

Stockpile: The Story Behind 10,000 Strategic Nuclear Weapons

By Joanie Ashford - November 1, 2010

Stockpile is an incredible book. At first glance, it might appear that Stockpile, the Story behind 10,000 Nuclear Weapons is a book that should be read by members of the military, politicians, and historians. It absolutely needs to be read by all of the above, but to leave out the general public is not the intention of the author, Vice Admiral Jerry Miller. In fact, Stockpile is written in such clear language that it can, and should, be read by every American adult.

Admiral Miller has written a book that can and should be read by all of us, no matter our background, age, or political party.
