Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

the cover of "If We Are Bombed" a government pamphlet from the St. Paul [Minnesota] Civil Defense Organization c.1948-1952.


p.10 of this pamplet relates what to do if caught in the open during an attack. 


Did you ever wonder what happens when an atomic bomb explodes?  Well, the St. Paul Civil Defense Board wanted you to know!

I love the graphics in this pamplet.  These sorts of booklets were published throughout the US in every major city in the 1950s and 1960s.  There were very detailed, if untested, plans in place to survive a nuclear attack from the USSR.

The training from these types of booklets was taught to us on a daily basis in school, during the Cuban Missile Crisis. It was very strange and stressful, to go to school every day, not knowing if you would ever see you parents again. I was in 6th grade at the time, 11 years old.
