This book was written by Mike Beehn, a former B52 Crew Chief in the United States Air Force. The book gives the reader insight into the years during the Vietnam War and Cold War when B52s were loaded with nuclear weapons and ready to be launched in the event of a nuclear attack on the United States. The former staff sergeant combines his memories with facts about the preparation for flights of the B52s stationed at Grand Forks AFB, North Dakota. As he writes he gives details of the launch, recovery, flight, and alert experiences of a B52H.
