Every minute of every hour of every day,there are American Bombers in the air,loaded with nuclear weapons,ready to fly into action at the mere spark of the right radio sign
al.These are the planes of the Strategic Air Command.
What happens once that signal flashes is described vividly in this tensely dramatic novel.
The command came to the men of the 843rd Wing,high in the air near the Russian border.
Asking no questions,obeying their standing orders,they headed straight towards their assigned targets.
Had America already been attacked?Or was it the action of a single determined general,and unauthorized by the pentagon and the president?
RED ALERT is the story of the two tensest hours in human history.
