This is the unique story of British nuclear testing in Australia during the 1950s. Britain's fist atomic test took place on Australian soil, and a further eleven explosions and a number of minor trials were made over the following decade. Updated from the original edition published in 1987, this new edition includes fresh material declassified from the national archives to give a fuller and richer picture of the test programme. New information has been added on the nature of the weapons being tested and the inter-relationship with the H-bomb tests at Christmas Island, together with two entirely new chapters on the contemporary controversies over the health of test veterans and the clean-up of the old test-range at Maralinga.
