In the 27th October 1951 copy of the Colliers Weekly magazine there was an alternate future history focus to the whole magazine - 132 pages of it called Operation Eggnogg. Various journalists and scientists imagined what would happen if in 1952 there was a limited nuclear exchange that ended with the UN taking over the USSR by 1953.
I find it to be a very interesting take on the alternate history of what a limited nuclear exchange would look like. There are definite refrains of Studs Terkel The Good War or even World War Z in that the story of World War III is told from varied points of view - from bombers, soldiers, those on the home front.
Hey Triffid, that's a great find. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. I think I'll put up a blog post about it also.
The first thing that jumps out about the magazine is how much of the content is advertising. I think I'll print it out and spend an afternoon at Starbucks reading through it.
May the road gangs never meet you. May the wind be fallout-free. May the sun shine through the ashes, hot rain not fall on thee. And until we meet again, may no one hold your flesh in the palm of their hand.
