LOS ANGELES - April 11, 2019 - PRLog -- Since the end of the Cold War, public awareness of the destructiveness of nuclear weapons has faded. Few political leaders facing international tensions today have significant understanding and knowledge of the catastrophic effects of nuclear warfare. The Armageddon Experience presents the experiences of one who has witnessed detonations and studied their consequences.

Calistoga, CA -Author Rod Buntzen began his career in US naval defense research when he stood 20 miles from a 9 Megaton thermonuclear detonation on a small island in the Pacific. In this memoir, he relates his experience minute by minute on that day in 1958.

"This is a fascinating, terrifying but powerful must read book. A mixture of memoir style writing with technical scientific facts regarding specific nuclear weapons tests and a historical throwback to the history of nuclear weapons development, this book pulls the reader in as the history of the Navy Radiological Defense Laboratory (NRDL) and several powerful and scary weapons tests slowly plays out." – Pacific Book Review

"Today's society is so much removed from the Cold War days that I am not sure many people care much about the possibility of nuclear war. Politics and climate change dominate the news." said the author during a recent interview. The Armageddon Experience: A Nuclear Weapons Test Memoiris an important read for all people of the generations born post WWII.
