From the Publisher

“A Cold War Legacy is a tribute to Strategic Air Command spanning the years of 1946-1992 when the command was disestablished. Each chapter sets the stage for what is to follow, describes the significant events during that period, and concludes with an overview. From the second chapter on, there are tables at the end which list the first and last deliveries for each new weapons system, phase-outs of the weapons systems, and combat unit gains and losses during that period. Numerous appendices provide biographies of the 13 leaders of SAC, listings of top-level staff officers and senior enlisted advisors, alert rates, weapons systems inventories throughout the years, combat unit and equipment, competition winners, major awards, Hot War statistics, and base locations.”
