Annie Jacobsen: Everything I learned about nuclear war shocked me

By Obomate Briggs

ܰNew Scientist Book Club has been reading Annie Jacobsen’s Nuclear War: A scenario, a sobering non-fiction thriller that lays out what would happen next if a nuclear missile hit the Pentagon. This week, our culture editor, Alison Flood, caught up with the New York Times best-selling author to talk about what disturbed her the most during her research, her candid interviews with world leaders and how close we could be to this scenario becoming a reality.
