Summary: The atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki marked the end of World War II--and heralded the beginning of the atomic age. Fearful of the United States's new power, Joseph Stalin set out to acquire the Bomb at any cost. By 1949, the Soviets had what they wanted and the atomic race had begun in earnest. As both superpowers prepared for Armageddon, citizens of the Soviet Union, Western Europe, and the US lived in a heightened state of nuclear terror and governments scrambled to make preparations for doomsday.--Container
