Overview

• New revised edition of the highly successful 2009 edition

From the late 1940s to the fall of Communist Russia, Britain was at war. To the general public much of it was imaginary but the Cold War was real nonetheless. Flaring up in 1962, with the Cuban missile crisis and in the 1980s with the standoffs between Reagan and Thatcher on one side, with the Soviet leaders on the other.

There are many remains today from 'secret' nuclear bunkers to missile sites, early-warning radar sites, huge research establishments and, of course, spy sites such as GCHQ.

Bob Clarke tells the story of the myriad Cold War remains, illustrated with 150 images, most never published before. He explains the need for our defenses and the consequences of nuclear war.

    Armageddon continues with key characters from Clarke’s &ld

    Armageddon continues with key characters from Clarke’s “Dreams from the Death Age” in the same fast-paced satirical style. While making us crack a smile or laugh out loud, Clarke also takes us on an emotional roller-coaster as the earth is brought to the brink of destruction where all hope for ‘mutated’ humanity seems lost. And through the laughter Clarke also asks a serious question - is total or near total annihilation actually preferable to inflicting humans on a long suffering planet that can no longer sustain it’s excesses. The question gets answered in ways you could never imagine. As only Clarke can do.

    I've never read a book that seems to have such wild plots and extreme situations but that because of how well written it is, it is also very believable. Clarke really hits home with his social commentary and brings crystal clear clarity to the world in a whole new way - but he does it through humor and exaggeration and not through boring preaching and I think that's what I appreciate the most. Because you read the book like an adventure suspense story, it moves along and all sorts of things happen that you don't expect that keep the action going and keep you engaged and yet on another level you also get hit with philosophical, moral, spiritual issues and they make the book so much more meaningful. I can’t wait for the third book of the trilogy to see where all this goes, I am sure in directions I could never imagine - that's what makes it fun.
