The basis for Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece, Dr. Strangelove-a chilling, suspenseful novel in which unchecked power unleashes total nuclear disaster. Air Force Brigadier General Quinten is a dying man suffering from the paranoid delusion that he can make the world a better place by ordering a full-scale nuclear attack on the Soviet Union. Once they get wind of it, the President of the United States and his advisors work frantically to stop the attack. The American bombers are to be shot down, and they succeed-but a lone bomber called the "Alabama Angel" escapes and flies on to complete its lunatic mission, ignoring the President's orders. A ghastly and chilling vision of what might happen when profound and deadly power is put into the wrong hands, this classic thriller continues to serve warning in today's tumultuous political climate.
