More like the second. From the era when it seemed the USSR was going to be a permanent empire. People took it at its word. The war in question was set off by the US creating a space nuclear command, or something like that, so the USSR preemptively blasted New York, Washington, San Antonio, and a couple other places. Then the US retaliated, leaving the Europeans and the Chinese basically in charge of what's left.deHavilland wrote:CC21106 wrote:Warday. ....Written just before the fall of the USSR.
The historical context for when that was written sounds really interesting. Was it "the USSR is about to fall and we're pretty sure that's about to happen" or "we really don't know what's coming down the pipeline, quick build more nukes! Star Wars space program! Go go go!"?
