New book on the Broken Arrow story
Calgary historian Norman Leach has sent me a press release for his latest book, Broken Arrow: America's First Lost Nuclear Weapon, published by Red Deer Press in February 2008. The press release asks: "Did an atomic bomb lie undetected for years in coastal British Columbia?" The story Leach tells concerns the crash in northern British Columbia of an American B-36 bomber on a flight from Alaska to San Francisco in February 1950. Questions surround the presence of a nuclear weapon onboard the aircraft, its fate, the fate of the crew, and what actually happened during the flight and crash of the B-36. For further information on the book contact Val Burke-Harland, Associate Publisher, Red Deer Press, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (403) 509-0803.
