Would You Like To Play A Game?

I remember reading articles like this (The Effects of a Global Thermonuclear War; 4th edition: escalation in 1988) when I was much younger, leading to lots of thinking about nuclear war and the inevitable, terrifying future. I can’t help but wonder how I would have ended up if I didn’t grow up with knowledge of the awesome power the world’s nations held and my awareness of completely helplessness in the face of it. At the time all I could do was hope that such a war never came to pass.

    Thanks for this, this will come in handy when I teach the Cold War!

    Josh Adams: Sure thing, but remember that’s just conjecture. I imagine there’s a number of think tank studies which could be more easily (and likely accurately) applied to the rest of the country.
