 Hello and Welcome.. We are now in the year 2020. The Swords of Armageddon, first published over 25 years ago is still available. If you are really interested in these subjects, since this history is not written for children,  then I encourage you to look and read. Many of us have more time than usual since we are sheltering-in-place as strongly suggested by out local health authorities. Don't get me wrong. I am not against these public safety health care measures. I think it is a good time to catch up with projects we have been meaning to do.

Welcome again to the uscoldwar.com web site. The purpose of this web site is to provide you with information about Chuck Hansen's history of the post 1945 U.S. development of nuclear weapons--The Swords of Armageddon. You are embarking on a voyage of discovery through information about one of the "blackest" military weapons programs ever instituted by the United States. 

Chuck Hansen's first version of his opus on this subject was published in late 1995 as a set of eight (volumes) Adobe Acrobat PDF files on CD-ROM. Chukelea Publications is now taking orders for Swords of Armageddon Version 2, the long awaited, updated, revision of Swords. Swords of Armageddon Version 2 consists of seven volumes now instead of eight. Volume I consists of the material that was previously in Volumes I and II.

THE CHUCK HANSEN  DOCUMENT COLLECTION 

 Chuck’s vast collection of documents and papers was donated to the National Security Archive, an independent non-governmental research institute and library located in the Gelman Library at the George Washington University in Washington D.C. Ninety boxes of material were packed and shipped to the Archive during the summer of 2003. As of July, 2007, about 70% of the documents had been processed, with a detailed inventory created. When the inventory is completed it is planned that it will appear on the NSA website.

According to NSA Director William Burr, anyone who wants to look at the processed portion of Chuck Hansen’s collection (or any other collection at the NSA – check their website) should contact Ms. Mary Curry, the NSA’s Public Service Coordinator. She can be reached at 202-994-7000 or nsarchiv@gwu.edu.

 Anyone wishing to look at the collection should give Ms. Curry at least one week notice (more time would be better). The NSA reading room is small and can get crowded so scheduling is very important. Up to five boxes can be ordered at a time.
