After us silence - Remnants of nuclear deterrence
For more than 40 years, Europe lived with the nuclear threat of the Cold War. Historian Arnold Pronk and photographer Martin Bruining undertook a project to find and visit the launch sites where the former Soviet Union once kept its nuclear missiles. These intermediate-range missiles were widely deployed along a continuous chain stretching from Murmansk to Crimea. But until recently, little information was available on the subject. Using sources such as online urbex communities, Google Earth, the INF Treaty, and CIA archives, the authors show the extent of the threat while giving insight into the evolution of the various weapon systems and documenting the forgotten sites first hand.
