A Fish Biologist's Impact on National Security
This is the story of the Threat Assessment indicating United States Vulnerability to Surprise Atomic Attack-that was believed and acted- upon. (As contrasted to Assessments which were ignored with serious consequences-- like the Rudman Commission and Gilmore Panel in late 1990's, and in the Pacific just prior to Dec.7,1941). This Story is the "inside" perspective of the unlikely chain of events which led to the Inquiry being authorized, and then conducted. It postulates why its unsettling findings were accepted as credible and valid. It describes how the findings were utilized as the basis for the massive efforts to eliminate this Vulnerability.-ie.that the United States's System for deterring Nuclear World War III--(SAC)-- could be attacked by complete Surprise, and destroyed on the ground by the Soviet long-range Bomber force. Finally the Book speculates as to how the Inquiry helped end the Cold War-withoutNuclear detonations by either side.
