This 650 page book was at one time classified TOP SECRET. It is now UNCLASSIFIED, but still has the SAME information in it when it was TOP SECRET. The DoD's classic and comprehensive 'bible' on the effects of Nuclear Weapons, written with extreme scientific detail, is a MUST HAVE for anyone working in Homeland Security, Emergency Services or in any other Civil Defense capacity. With this book you can KNOW the effects of a weapon at any distance, including blast speed, overpressure, prompt radiation, thermal radiation, fall out values and timeline, along with everything else, like EMP. It can even tell you potential crater sizes. The reverse is true as well. If terrorists were to set off a nuke on the ground, measurement of the crater would indicate the yield of the weapon used. Glass windows broken at X miles away would also indicate the yield of the device with this book. This book is especially important for information services that must be able to provide accurate information in the aftermath of a NUCLEAR ATTACK. If you want to know what a 5 Kiloton stolen Soviet suitcase nuke would do, this book will tell you without requiring that you know everything that nuclear scientists know.
