An the newest secret weapon - A GLIDER
East and West had managed an uneasy truce in the arms' race by banning all weapons developed after 1900. Yet small wars, waged in front of television cameras, were the means of settling industrial disputes.
It was a crazy way of doing things...but it worked - until an ambitious Major upset the status quo, and threw the world's peace into deadly peril!
