In January 2018 the world's Doomsday Clock was moved to 'two minutes to midnight', meaning we are officially closer to nuclear annihilation now than ever before.
This book, written by the world's leading nuclear expert, is a terrifyingly real account of how a coming conflict might well play out. It is 'speculative history', written in the style of The 9/11 Commission Report: pacey, highly readable, and crammed with plausible detail.
Through a series of human errors, communications failures, paranoia and inflammatory tweets from President Trump, military events rapidly escalate. Poor DPRK guards using outmoded radar systems fire on a South Korean passenger plane, triggering a nuclear conflict, and catastrophic attacks on New York and Washington, with the ultimate loss of 2 million lives.
