'A book with a ferocious pace and more black humour than one could imagine'-
Evening Standard

**As heard on BBC Radio 4 The World Tonight**

America lost 1.4 million citizens in the North Korean attacks of 2020. This is the final, authorised report of the US government commission investigating the catastrophe.


'The skies over the Korean Peninsula on March 21, 2020, were clear and blue . . .' So begins this investigation by nuclear expert Dr Jeffrey Lewis into the horrific events of the three days that followed.

While covering the fatal milestones - from North Korea's accidental shootdown of a South Korean airliner to the tweet that triggered carnage - the report asks difficult questions about the conduct of world leaders along the path to war.

Did President Trump and his advisers realise the dangers of provoking Kim Jong Un with social media posts? Was conflict inevitable, or could the peace talks of 2018 have been successful? Who, ultimately, is responsible for one of the greatest tragedies in world history?

"A book with ferocious pace and more black humour than one could imagine" * Evening Standard *
"The plot is so absurd and implausible-a nuclear war prompted by a presidential tweet-that it feels devastatingly true. The 2020 COMMISSION REPORT is a brilliantly conceived page-turner. Let's hope it isn't prophetic" * Eric Schlosser, author of COMMAND AND CONTROL *
"A Dr Strangelove for our time" * The Observer *
"Chillingly plausible" * Economist *
"Couldn't put this book down.... If fear of nuclear war is going to keep you up at night, at least it can be a page-turner" * New Scientist *
