Item description for Nuclear Peace: The Story of the Trident Three by John Mayer...

Nuclear weapons were ruled illegal in 1999 by the World Court. Three middle-aged peace activists disabled the Trident thermonuclear submarine fleet in the Highlands of Scotland to test this ruling and make governments take note. When arrested, they took the brave and unprecedented step of suing the British government for possessing weapons of mass destruction, and they won.

The women's lawyer and author of this book, John Mayer, used the highest laws in the world---the Nuremberg Principles and the reasoning of the World Court. "The Trident Three," American Ellen Moxley, Angie Zelter from the U.K. and Ulla Roder from Den-mark have dedicated their lives to peaceful action and this is their remarkable story of how ordinary people can make a difference.

Reviews - What do customers think about Nuclear Peace: The Story of the Trident Three?

Courage, suspense, celebration, and hope  Jan 2, 2003
What an adventure! All the more inspiring for being true. John Mayer has captured a too rare event with a keen eye for drama, history, and human survival. Three courageous women from a world-wide community of Ploughshares activists boarded a highly secret vessel in Loch Goil in northwest Scotland to disarm it, thereby disarming the British Trident nuclear submarines the vessel serviced. How the women planned and carried out this amazing feat and then were acquitted of any crime is a story not to be missed by any peace-loving person or any adventure lover. There's a good deal of suspense as well as humor and lots of human joy in this story. It's a great read with profound hopefulness for the human soul.
History in the making  Oct 30, 2002
This is a great book. I have just finished reading it here in Washington DC, but I felt throughout that I was right there with the women called The Trident Three as they did their disarmament work on board that NATO facility in Loch Goil, Scotland.

Mayer seems not only to be a great lawyer who is prepared to battle for all humanity - he can write extremely well also. His style skips right along as he explains what the women did, how he got involved as their Scottish Advocate and what the international law has to say about this constant danger to humanity from nuclear weapons. Mayer is right - this is an adventure story and one which once picked up, is real hard to put down.
