As the world teeters on the edge of Armageddon, Britain’s top brass are faced with the most chilling decision of all. After Russia has invaded a Nato state, the rapidly escalating crisis threatens the very existence of Britain. Now, with a nuclear strike on London imminent, military commanders and senior Government figures in a Whitehall bunker must choose whether to launch our Trident missiles in response, having already decided against a nuclear strike at an earlier stage in the crisis. But the decision is no – and this outcome of an utterly realistic ‘war game’ throws up deeply troubling questions, not least with the current political row over Government plans to spend £100 billion replacing our fleet of Trident submarines. When Nato leaders become divided about how to respond, America and Britain go it alone to launch a ground offensive to force Putin’s troops back, during which four British soldiers are taken hostage until they are rescued by Special Forces. Then Russia hits back with a nuclear strike on Royal Navy warship HMS Ocean – instantly killing 1,200 Royal Marines and sailors. Remarkably, the committee votes against retaliating with a nuclear strike. But America, which also lost a warship, ignores the British advice and unleashes its own nuclear attack on a Russian military target – pushing us into all-out atomic war.
