Hi all. Never even thought about coming here to ask until I saw a thread earlier today. Anyway, back in school we read a short story about a family that was hunkering down, going into a bomb shelter because their country was about to be or was already under attack. The story followed described the moments leading up to everything and the fact that this country was being attacked by another country first. The reason the story stuck with me so much was that in the end, it was revealed that it was the U.S. Attacking another country. That was a powerful thing back in the late 80's because at that time, you never really considered the possibility of the U.S. Being the 1 to start a war. Anyway, been trying to find out for years what the story is and who wrote it. There is a famous writer of short stories that I thought might have been the author but cannot remember his name. Any thoughts?

Perhaps this list will help?

en.wikipedia.org...

The most talked about or watched one in the 80's was called: The Day After, one geared more towards students in schools at the time was: Red Dawn

this is of no help to the OP question - but while you are waiting to re-discover the book you seek - read :

level 7

PS - dont read any review . synopsis etc - just read the book " blind " - it has more impact if you have no idea whats happening
