About this product
- Description<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC -//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN > How could you and your family survive a nuclear war? From 1945 onwards, the Canadian government developed civil defence plans and encouraged citizens to join local survival corps. By the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis, the civil defence program was widely mocked, and the public was still vastly unprepared for nuclear war. An expose of the challenges of educating the public on the threat of nuclear annihilation, Give Me Shelter provides a well-grounded explanation of why Canada's civil defence strategy ultimately failed. It is essential reading for anyone interested in Canada's Cold War home front.
