Summary
"The eye-opening true story of the government's secret plans to survive and rebuild after a catastrophic attack on U.S. soil--a narrative that spans from the dawn of the nuclear age to today. For sixty years, the U.S. government has been developing secret Doomsday plans to protect itself in the event of a terrorist or nuclear attack, and the multibillion-dollar Continuity of Government (COG) program takes numerous forms--from its plans to evacuate high-ranking officials to bunkers surrounding Washington, DC, to the prospect of launching nuclear missiles from a Boeing 747 flying high over Nebraska. In [this book], Garrett Graff utilizes thousands of pages of once-classified documents, as well as original interviews and visits to former and current COG facilities, to track the evolution of the government's plans and the threats of global war from the Truman administration through the present day. Equal parts a presidential, military, and political history, Raven Rock takes readers through the back channels of government to understand exactly what is at stake if our nation is attacked, and how we're prepared to respond if it is."--Jacket
