Summary:

"For sixty years, the U.S. government has been developing secret Doomsday plans to protect itself, and the multibillion-dollar Continuity of Government (COG) program takes numerous forms, from its plans to evacuate the Liberty Bell from Philadelphia and our most precious documents from the National Archives, to the plans to launch nuclear missiles from a Boeing 747 jet flying high over Nebraska. ... Equal parts a presidential, military, and political history, Raven Rock tracks the evolution of the government's plans and the threats of global war from the awn of the nuclear era through the present day. Relying upon thousands of pages of once-classified documents, as well as original interviews and visits to former and current COG facilities, Graff brings readers through the back channels of government to understand exactly what is at stake if our nation is attacked, and how we're prepared to respond if it is." --From the publisher.
