Putting conspiracy aside for just a moment, the facts remain that post-World War II, the United States found itself in a desperate race with the Soviet Union on many fronts.

This month’s Book, Secret Empire by Philip Taubman, can give you the inside scoop on the titanic strategic implications of those times that still remain with us today.
