From Library Journal:

Written for the layperson, this work demonstrates two salient facts: The Pacific is dominated by the American military; and the war plans of the United States and the Soviet Union make the Pacific a potential hot spot for nuclear confrontation. As is the case in Europe, nuclear weapons are being used in strategic planning to compensate for overextended conventional forces. Rigid and inadequate communication structures compound the problem, as nuclear weapons are not always under centralized command. A hypothetical account of a nuclear conflict dramatically portrays these weaknesses. The authors call for regional disarmament and the creation of nonintervention zones. Thirty pages of appendixes detail the structure, size, and systems of the Pacific forces. Recommended. Dennis Felbel, Univ . of Manitoba Libs., Winnipeg
