Command and Control: nuclear weapons, the Damascus accident, and the illusion of safety by Eric Schlosser

51zd+Q4Lc+L__SX324_BO1,204,203,200_A history of nuclear weapons and a look at the Damascus Arkansas missile explosion are the framework for this truly eye opening book. Military departments all wanted a piece of the nuclear pie, the military, air force and navy.  This led to the huge buildup of weapons and with more weapons (some flying around the world 24 hours a day) there is an increased risk of accidents.  Detailed, engaging and terrifying.  I am not shocked too often but this book really shocked me.  I couldn’t believe the infighting between the different military branches and the almost miracle that there hasn’t been an accidental nuclear detonation.  This book truly opened my eyes.
