Product Information

If you decide to build a nuclear bomb shelter you will want to judge for yourself the degree of protection necessary or possible for you and your family. The purpose of this manual is to make all known facts available to you in one complete reference so that your decisions will be based on facts -- not on the opinions of others.

Originally published in 1963, this manual is not intended to provide the electrical, plumbing or carpentry details of shelter building. No effort has been made to explain how every bolt is to be set, every electrical outlet placed, every yard of concrete poured or every reinforcing bar placed. It is intended as a guide for shelter construction, a reminder and a checklist -- not a detailed blueprint.

The main problem may not be to survive a nuclear attack but to survive a nuclear war and to just exist in the immediate post attack world until that war is won. The system described in this manual would then prove to be much more than just a nuclear bomb shelter. Many questions you may now have regarding this concept would be answered at that time.
