Books on the history of fortifications are plentiful, but the hidden forts of the nuclear age have not been cataloged and studied in the same way until now. In Underground Structures of the Cold War, the author describes when and where these bunkers were built, and records what has become of them. This detailed account covers every sort of facility—public shelters, missile sites, command and communication centers, storage depots, and hospitals—taking full advantage of the surprising amount of information that has recently appeared in the media about such places.
Paul Ozorak is an amateur historian with a passion for former military bases who works as an accountant in Canada. Among his previous publications is another Cold War book, Bunkers Bunkers Everywhere.
