In 1950, for the first time in history, mankind realised that he had within his grasp a truly God-like power - the ability to destroy life itself. Doomsday Men reveals the personalities behind the technologies of nuclear doomsday and shows how, in the end, the doomsday machine became the ultimate symbol of humanity's deepest fears about the science of destruction.
