Book by Reed Thomas


"In the 1960s Tom Reed was one of Livermore's most creative designers of thermonuclear devices. During the years that followed, his career as a practicing physicist and as a public servant has been first class."--EDWARD TELLER, Father of the H-bomb "Tom Reed was one of our youngest Air Force Secretaries. He served with distinction in the most difficult of times. His book captures those years and those dangers beautifully." --GEN. RUSSELL DOUGHERTY, USAF (Ret.), Former Commander in Chief, Strategic Air Command "Mr. Reed was there as a key advisor when President Reagan settled on his plan for ending the Cold War. From the very beginning of their relationship, in 1965, Reagan has trusted and relied on Reed." --JUDGE WILLIAM P. CLARK, Former National Security Advisor to President Reagan "Tom Reed offers a unique inside account of President Reagan on the brink, as he maneuvered for a U.S. victory in the Cold War. It is a most valuable and readable assessment." --LOU CANNON, Author of "President Reagan: The Role of a Lifetime" "[N]ot only provides a thorough history and analysis of the [Cold] War, but takes a jarring lessons-learned portrait of the successes and failures in military policy and strategy that prolonged and placated perhaps the most enduring international conflict of this generation . . . ." - "Sea Power" "[A] fascinating Cold War book." --William Safire "The book deserves quite high marks for how much it pulls together, as well as offering a viewpoint on the Cold War not nearly sufficiently well-represented in the public literature." "--Publishers Weekly" ""
