About this Item

288 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.While much has been written about the Cold War from the political, diplomatic and overall military perspective, very little has been written about the American warriors who fought and won the war. In Deterrence, Adams tells the story of the U. S. leaders, commanders, enlisted men of the U. S. military strategic nuclear forces that successfully defeated the Soviet war machine. This book goes a long way toward telling how and why the United States prevailed in the Cold War. - Keith D. McFarland, PhD, President Emeritus, Texas A and M UniversityCommerce In this notable work, Chris Adams has not only captured the essence of national security through vigilant deterrence, but clearly recognizes and honors the leaders, commanders, service members and families who played critical roles in the defense of our country. - Lt. General Edgar S. Harris, Jr. USAF, Retired Fmr Vice Commander-in Chief, Strategic Air Command I had the privilege of serving with General Chris Adams in Strategic Air Command. During those critical years, SACs charged Cold Warriors and their families were at the center of our deterrent force. Herein, Adams captures the critical mission and importance of those whose professional service behind the scenes made it possible to win the Cold War. - Jim McCoy, Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force, Retired Few Americans recognized or paid close attention to the outset of the Cold War and thereafter its enduring years, mainly because it persisted for so long and few alarming situations intruded their daily lives. Only noteworthy events such as SPUTNIK, the shooting down of Gary Powers U-2 spy plane and the Cuban Crisis brought the potentially threatening circumstances home, and then only briefly until other news items took their place. America has never fallen short of heroes when called upon for the common defense of the nation and the Cold War period of uncertainty called upon Americas best and brightest to respond-national leaders, military commanders and an elite force of warriors trained with the most sophisticated war-fighting equipment U. S. technology could provide to create the strategy and deterrent force that endured. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
