Summary
"After World War II, the United States felt secure in its atomic monopoly. From 1945 to 1950, the atomic arsenal was poorly coordinated and funded. The Air Force and the AEC failed to coordinate efforts for a possible atomic offensive. This lack of preparedness serves as a case study in the tenuous nature of U.S. civilian-military relationships.
