In Nuking the Moon, intelligence historian Vince Houghton shows us that what didn't happen is just as illuminating as what did. During WWII and the Cold War, for every Argo or Operation Mincemeat there were countless abandoned plans. Some are laughable, like the US Navy's plan to turn bats into flying firebombs; some are implausible, like the Kennedy administration's plan to build a command centre 4,000 feet underground; and some are legitimately terrifying, like the cornucopia of US plans to justify attacking Cuba.
