Alas, Babylon is a novel by Pat Frank written during the Cold War (1959) and tells a story of survivors trying to survive the aftermath of a nuclear
war in the USA.
I read this book a long time ago and couldn't remember why the USA and Russia went to war. The reason being was a US plane mistakenly hit an ammo
depot in Syria and causes a nuclear war.
"an American fighter pilot attempting to intercept an enemy plane over the Mediterranean inadvertently fires an AIM-9 Sidewinder heat-seeking missile
that goes off course and hits an ammunition depot in Latakia, Syria, resulting in a large explosion. This event becomes the apparent casus belli for
the Soviet Union to launch a nuclear strike against the United States and its allies. Early the following morning, Soviet missiles arrive from over
the Arctic, as well as from submarines, while American missiles are sent in response. Randy and his house guests are awakened by shaking from the
bombing of various air force bases and naval air stations across Florida"
I stumbled across this when I was rereading this book and was just kinda amazed that Syria was the primary reason for nuclear war in this book. I'm
not making any prediction or prophecy, just kinda interesting.
