Continental Defense in the Eisenhower Era: Nuclear Antiaircraft Arms and the Cold War Fueled by Cold War anxiety about the threat of a surprise nuclear attack by Soviet jet-bombers, the U.S. nuclear arsenal ballooned from 841 warheads when President Eisenhower assumed office in 1953 to over 18,000 by the time he left office in 1961. Roughly 20% of these warheads were based around cities and military installations throughout the U.S. for air defense purposes. The fact that the widely publicized deployment of over 3,500 nuclear weapons explicitly intended for use directly over or near U.S. territory enjoyed broad public support is a telling measure of early Cold War fears, according to Christopher Bright, author of Continental Defense in the Eisenhower Era: Nuclear Antiaircraft Arms and the Cold War.

The Nuclear Arms Race The Nuclear Arms Race The nuclear arms race was central to the Cold War. Many feared where the Cold War was going with the belief that the more nuclear weapons you had, the more powerful you were. Both America and Russia massively built up their stockpiles of nuclear weapons.
The Nuclear Winter One of the real fears in the later years of the Cold War was the impact of a 'Nuclear Winter' on Mankind. The whole concept of a 'Nuclear Winter' only became publicly apparent in the 1980’s and had its supporters and its detractors. However, for a short time the whole idea of a nuclear winter caught the public imagination to such an extent that the BBC produced a television programme based around a nuclear attack on the city of Sheffield and what happened to the area around the city once a nuclear winter had set in. By 1985, the total explosive power of all the nuclear weapons held by countries was estimated to be between 12,000 and 20,000 megatons. The superpowers of the USA and the USSR kept their actual nuclear strength secret but various bodies such as the International Institute for Strategic Studies concluded that the world’s stockpile of nuclear bombs was in the range of 12k to 20k megatons.

We are speaking on this occasion, not as members of this or that nation, continent, or creed, but as human beings, members of the species Man, whose continued existence is in doubt.

Carl von Clausewitz Name[edit] Clausewitz's Christian names are sometimes given in non-German sources as "Carl Philipp Gottlieb" or "Carl Maria." He spelled his own given name with a "C" in order to identify with the classical Western tradition; writers who use "Karl" are often seeking to emphasize his German (rather than European) identity.
