The nuclear era spawned survival strategies including duck-and-cover in schools and fallout shelters in backyards. But for government officials, Graff reports in this startling history of doomsday plans, the scenario was, and is, quite different. Established some sixty years ago and now available in case of terrorist attacks, the multibillion-dollar Continuity of Government (COG) program involves the daily flight of a helicopter squadron, poised to whisk the president and other top officials to one of a network of secret bunkers throughout the country. Ordinary citizens, however, will have to fend for themselves, dissidents and foreigners will be rounded up, and industries will be nationalized. Graff, the author of The Threat Matrix and The First Campaign, is a former editor of Washingtonian and POLITICO and a veteran reporter covering politics, technology, and national security.
