Yaay, what a collection of long-ago-debunked myths (India, giants), unsourced narrations (Soldiers killing a giant in Afghanistan), incorrect correlation of uncorrelated items (Tunguska->valley of death) and other really, really... esoterical things. I kind of missed the bosnian pyramides, though... Na, not really.
Please understand me, I like to read about mysteries like every other person too. I really like to imagine that there are great mysteries left to discover.
But this is a large heap of more or less desperate tries to "prove" an ancient nuclear war. I will not (and obviously can't) downvote this, but I would recommend the reader to take this thread in with a dose of doubt.

So...you want us to buy a book? Is that what I'm getting out of this?
In 1960 Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier published Morning of the Magicians, their outrageous, Fortean compendium of conspiracies, misinterpretations, and lies. In that book, they drew on some weird Soviet “science” that suggested nuclear weapons had been used in ancient India. To support their claim, they quoted what they said was the Indian Mahabharata, an ancient Sanskrit epic poem from c. 400 BCE:
In the Mausola Purva, we find this singular description, which must have been incomprehensible to nineteenth-century ethnologists though not to us today: “…it was an unknown weapon, an iron thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death which reduced to ashes the entire race of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas. The corpses were so burned as to be unrecognizable. Their hair and nails fell out; pottery broke without any apparent cause, and the birds turned white. After a few hours, all foodstuffs were infected. The thunderbolt was reduced to a fine dust.”
And again: “Cukra, flying on board a high-powered vimana, hurled on to the triple city a single projectile charged with all the power of the Universe. An incandescent column of smoke and flame, as bright as ten thousand Suns, rose in all its splendor… When the vimana returned to Earth, it looked like a splendid block of antinomy resting on the ground.”
Day by day strong winds blew, and many were the evil omens that arose, awful and foreboding the destruction of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas. The streets swarmed with rats and mice. Earthen pots showed cracks or broken from no apparent cause. At night, the rats and mice ate away the hair and nails of slumbering men. […] That chastiser of foes commanded the Vrishnis to make a pilgrimage to some sacred water. The messengers forthwith proclaimed at the command of Kecava that the Vrishnis should make a journey to the sea-coast for bathing in the sacred waters of the ocean.

Mount Shasta is a natural pyramid sacred to many in Asia.
There was a suspended and later suppressed announcement of a discovery in south America in the early to mid 90's about a gigantic pyramid seven time's larger than the great pyramid in Egypt

as recorded in the Mahabharata
Considering the age and engineering complexity of the pyramid(s), and considering findings such as the antikythera mechanism, I certainly would not rule-out the possibility that nuclear (or even more advanced) technology was previously harnessed and utilized in our ancient and mysterious past.
