In stock


This is the story of how the Cold War impacted on the people of East Anglia. Had nuclear conflict broken out, the region would have found itself as the target of a Soviet strike for the simple reason that it housed the launch pad for not only the British deterrent, but also America’s first line of defence. The book also examines the early development of the UK’s nuclear arsenal, with ballistic and environmental testing of nuclear bombs at Orford Ness and storage and maintenance at one of the country’s most secret sites, Barnham.

Cold War: East Anglia reveals the secrets of the years of confrontation, and looks at what life might have been like had the Cold War turned ‘hot’.
