From the Inside Flap:

Cover: An A-6 Intruder, a carrier-based medium attack, all-weather bomber, and his wingman streak away from the blast of a nuclear weapon dropped on target. (An original watercolor painting, by Jim Little)

About the Author:

James (Jim) Little was born during the early years of World War II in the fertile farmlands of San Joaquin Valley, California. His book, Brotherhood of Doom: Memoirs of a Navy Nuclear Weaponsman, details his naval career, which began with, schooling in Great Lakes, Illinois and, New Mexico. He was involved in the Cuban Missile Blockade, and the Gulf of Tonkin Incident, followed by five deployments during the Vietnam War. The book details his assignments aboard aircraft carriers, and assignments at overseas locations, and assignments in Albuquerque, New Mexico, as a "Mustang" (an officer who rose up through the enlisted ranks). His assignments as a nuclear weaponsman ranged from an assemblyman (wrench turner), to a position as an officer responsible for over one-third of the nation's stockpile, and as a highly placed member of stockpile management, and planning committees. The book ends with his job as an Officer in Charge of a Sound Surveillance Underwater System (SOSUS) base, during the time of Desert Storm. During his 30-year career he was awarded 29 medals and ribbons, and various letters of appreciation and commendation. His highest award was the Meritorious Service Medal, awarded by the President of the United States.

Jim and his wife Carmen enjoy retirement in rural Oregon. And as a friend said of Jim, referring to his enjoyment of watercolor painting, "For thirty years he was involved in work that could have destroyed the world, now in retirement he works to paint the world."
