Review by

A really excellent study that puts the evolution of the British nuclear deterrent into perspective, as author examines the decisions that were made to keep the manned bomber force viable. To a large degree this is a history of "stand-off" weapons used until a viable ballistic missile force could be deployed. Also, Gibson has little use for what might be called the traditional position of whining bitterly about the cancellations of much-touted aviation endeavors, seeing most of these projects as not being viable either because of changing technology or the limitations of the British economy.
