The world has had a long-standing reliance on nuclear weapons and the UK is no exception to this reliance having in its disposal the Trident Programme, which is the development, procurement and operation of current British nuclear weapons. The world still has more than 16,000 nuclear weapons waiting on standby for an order of release if the conditions of war arise. Tim Wallis in The Truth about Trident explores the issues Trident presents and the questions of what would be the impact of their use? How safe are they in the meantime? Are they really necessary? Can we afford them? Are there better alternatives? This book aims to peel back the layer of confusion and deceit to reach the truth about Trident.
