Summary (From the publisher):

For years there had been an uneasy peace on Earth, a period in which mankind sought to lift himself from the dust which was the beginning of the stars which were his destiny. But all of this was to come to nought. The spy satellites, circling the earth in their tight, close orbits, telemetered back all the information necessary about the enemy's defenses. Striking first, the Eastern Federation launched their missiles toward a seemingly unsuspecting Western Alliance, confident that with this single blow they would begin and end the war.

But they had overlooked the underground weapon pits, the automatic devices which never slept. Within seconds of the first hydrogen bomb landing, rockets were screaming around the curve of the earth, carrying their warheads of hydrogen bombs, crystalline biotoxins, and all of the other horrors which had been dreamed up in the intervening years.
