Second, I think it's very interesting how few narratives there are of actually fighting an atomic war in the old good-guy/bad-guy style. There are plenty of stories set inan atomic war, but almost all depict thirty-minute mutual there's more then a few WW3 technothrillers, but almost all of them depict a purely conventional war - if nukes are used at.
