In this sometimes disturbing and frightening memoir of experiences, interviews, and government documents, Robert Campbell seeks to level the playing field for many atomic veterans after he discovered how great a difference could exist between contemporaneous records and later-reconstructed versions of the same nuclear operations. Using the Freedom of Information Act, Robert tried to match real-time data with the footprints (experiences) of veterans who lived it and compare this information, when possible, to later versions postulated by officials who were not present at these operations. Very interesting reading.

About the author (2009)

As an army participant at four nuclear tests, Robert L. Campbell’s legal secretarial background helped him work within the legal system to guide atomic veterans processing their claims. Many veterans worried that their health conditions were related to their radiation exposure, but they struggled against governmental delays to access needed documentation. The author—an insistent, persistent advocate for veterans’ rights—often testified before congressional committees and appeared before the National Academy of Sciences subdivision, the Institute of Medicine, while an active member of veterans’ groups within the United States and New Zealand, the Royal Canadian Legion, and the British Nuclear Test Veterans Association.
