Nuclear Strategy. Early years and the chaos of the first nuclear age. Part I
Before August 6, 1945, Bernard Brodie’s future seemed more or less stable; the war in Europe was over; the war in the Pacific would end sooner or later, probably as a result of the long and bloody campaign on the Japanese islands. Brodie would pursue a career as a marine strategy theorist at the University of Chicago.
