Strategic Air Command is charged to maintain peace, but only indirectly. Its primary mission is to prevent a nuclear war by maintaining strong deterrent forces. That is not quite the same as maintaining peace, but - pragmatically - it sometimes amounts to the same thing. In this book, the author describes Strategic Air Command as it is today and looks back at its evolution since the last war. In carrying out his task he was afforded special facilities by the United States Air Force and both his text and the remarkable photographs which accompany it give a unique account of the multifarious roles of the Western Alliance's main deterrent against Soviet aggression.
