Surviving a Nuclear War

Haaland, Carsten M.; Wigner, Eugene P.
September 1976
National Review;9/17/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 35, p1005
The article focuses on the status of nuclear weapons technology and policies in the U.S. and the Soviet Union in September 1976. The Soviets had been exerting their efforts to further strengthen their military power. They believed that if their civil defense plans were executed, the whole U.S. striking force would not be able to destroy more than a small fraction of the population of the Soviet Union. American engineers had been doing their part as well by studying the effects of nuclear weapons. However, the Soviets had surpassed the Americans in designing effective countermeasures.
