Another Book Review
« on: February 18, 2008, 11:35:38 AM »
I just read an excellent book called "The Big One" by Stuart Slade. The back cover has the text:

"Summer 1947. Europe is being torn apart by a war which nobody can win. Nazi Germany occupies Europe from the Pyrenees to the Volga. In the East, Russian and American troops fight to the stop the German Army from breaking through. In the West, American carriers prowl the Atlantic, hurling their midnight-blue fighter bombers against any target they can find. Nothing can stop the madness. America has one hand left to play. A fleet of the largest bombers the world has ever seen and a plan to bring the war to an end in a single blow. In a world gone to hell, the only option left is THE BIG ONE..."

Essentially the book covers a single day when a fleet of a thousand B-36 bombers launch a transatlantic raid on Germany to nuke the 200 largest German cities. Not a lot of characterisation but a fascinating story.
