Dedicated to an unsung hero of the Cold War, Soviet Army Colonel Stanislav Petrov, this is a dark and wonderfully satirical 'Revisionist History' of war and all its glories.
Looking deeply into the workings of human affairs, Sanjuan exposes many cherished ideas about -- WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, the Bay of Pigs, the Falkland Islands -- and deconstructs all the basic concepts of modern war including mutually assured destruction (MAD) which the fall of the USSR has not eliminated.
Sanjuan is no stranger to controversy and uses his pen, personal acquaintance, and experience -- once again -- to puncture the egos of some of the biggest names in war. The great thing is: he KNOWS all these guys.
