Protect and Survive
Distributed for Imperial War Museum
This booklet will instantly help us remember. Published by the British government in 1980 to educate the public about nuclear war and its aftermath, Protect and Survive warns citizens that no part of the United Kingdom would be safe in the event of a nuclear war. It explains how people can plan for survival in advance, how they can recognize signs of imminent attack, and what they should do in the immediate and longer-term aftermath of an attack. Chilling in its straightforwardness, Protect and Survive is a uniquely stark reminder of that all-too-recent era.
