Witness to the End describes formerly secret chapters between 1959-1969 of the Cold War when the U.S. caught up to the Soviet Union's lead in rockets and missiles. Drawing on his personal experience as the Foreign Programs Officer and Assistant to the Chief Scientist, Special Projects Office for the development of the Fleet Ballistic Missiles for US Nuclear submarines, Poirier leads the reader through confrontations and secret meetings at sea, and explains why President Eisenhower and President Kennedy had to place their bets on Polaris nuclear submarines. Witness to the End also contains various recently declassified photos, including a 1956 photo from a U-2. This book will appeal to anyone interested in the history of the Cold War, in espionage, in the Holocaust, foreign intrigue, nuclear deterrence and the evolution of its doctrine in foreign affairs.
