One Minute to Midnight: Fact and Fiction About Armageddon

As a child of the nuclear age and an innocent bystander during the Cuban Missile Crisis, our maverick English Teacher and amateur history buff looks into the abyss of total annihilation and comes up with 40 works of fact and fiction that show us how close we have been to the brink, how often, and what might happen should we step over the edge. Not pleasant reading, perhaps, but necessary.
