From the cover: “Provides a detailed examination of how the former Soviet Union became a superpower. The author takes the reader step-by-step through the development of Soviet nuclear weapons technology and the development of the systems needed to deliver those weapons to targets in the United States. Drawing on secret, recently declassified Soviet documents and articles, as well as recent revelations from KGB and CIA files, Zaloga sheds new light on the role of Klaus Fuchs and Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, the so-called atomic spies of the late forties and early fifties. A chapter on the 1962 Cuban missile crisis provides a unique perspective on that critical Cold War show-down. In addition, Target America examines the bomber and missile “gaps” of the fifties, the race to develop submarine-launched missiles, and the adverse impact of nuclear testing on unsuspecting Soviet citizens, as well as other aspects of the nuclear arms race.”
