Heroes of the Cold War

Item# ISBN978-0-8059-8346-3

by Dr. Richard D. Worley

The Cold War lasted about thirty years with thousands of people participating. There were politicians, the military, and administrative and technical personnel engaged in this war. No actual fighting, as we know it today, occurred. The war was about the nuclear capacity of each side (U.S. and Russia) and the ability of mankind to obliterate itself. If you attacked, you would be attacked. No one would win. Each side was a deterrent to the other.

Only one group of people could provide this deterrent. This book touches on the lives of those people who gave us this nuclear capacity.


I was born in Arkansas in the mid-twenties and struggled through the depression and World War II. I grew up fast during those years. With the help of the G.I. Bill, I entered college and seventeen years and five degrees later, I was prepared for our Nuclear Weapon Program (Cold War). I thoroughly enjoyed my work. After twenty years in this program, I returned to college. I taught physics for ten years, then retired.
