      You may be surprised that the author praises LeMay and SAC
      for controlling nuclear hysteria against those who preferred
      demogoguery for political and careerist gain. The detailed
      description of the Titan incident's unfolding and the bravey
      of those few who took it on rather than panic, is masterful,
      and shows what is still needed today against the WMD
      propagandists.

      Also shown is how royal screw-ups were concealed as
      a matter of policy, to "not frighten the public." Same policy
      now to justify secretkeeping, instead lull with comforting
      assurances to trust commanders and controllers, wow,
      that is the cretinous PR LeMay loathed and fired the
      lazy-assed practitioners of it.

      As a SAC man who was intimately involved in nuclear C-cubed and surity at the time, the one thing I can definitively say about this book... it is ideologically twisted fiction which says absolutely nothing new that conspiracy and panic theorists from that camp have not attempted to hype before.  Anyone actually involved in command, control, communications and surity knows how preposterous the twisting is in this book. A worthless read if there ever was one.
