Camp Century: The Untold Story of America's Secret Arctic Military Base Under the Greenland Ice

Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportBogForskningpeer review

At the height of the Cold War, the U.S. Army secretly began work on a base embedded deep in the Greenland ice cap: Camp Century. Officially defined as a scientific research station, this facility had an undisclosed purpose: to aim up to 600 nuclear warheads at the Soviet Union. This book unravels the extraordinary history of this clandestine installation, from high-level diplomacy to the base's decommissioning through present-day concerns over the effects of climate change.
