In a world still reeling from the fallout of the Cuban Missile Crisis, a group of American bombers--armed with a deadly payload of nuclear weapons--heads towards Moscow, their motives mysterious. Suddenly, a nuclear apocalypse looms closer than itMoreIn a world still reeling from the fallout of the Cuban Missile Crisis, a group of American bombers--armed with a deadly payload of nuclear weapons--heads towards Moscow, their motives mysterious. Suddenly, a nuclear apocalypse looms closer than it ever has--and the lives of millions of people depend on the high-stakes diplomacy of leaders on both sides of the divide.This novel is the basis for a movie version released in 1964, starring Henry Fonda.

Author Eugene Burdicks political science credentials make this more than an ordinary thriller--its also a fascinating social commentary on Cold War politics. Fail-Safe explores the thin line between peace and global destruction that characterized this turbulent time.

As relevant today as it was on the day it was published, this is a high-tension tale thats nearly impossible to put down.
