Nuclear Planning in a Vacuum 1948–1949
Several proposals were made regarding the modifications on defence planning and the utilization of nuclear weapons. These undertakings led to divided feedback from the military personnel (which refers to the Navy and Air Force) and conflicts on bureaucratic interest in terms of the employment of the materials, the dilemma of the defence process of Britain during the two world wars (that was centralized on the continental commitment and maritime/air strategy), and the usage of either supervised weapons or nuclear weapons. Although there are steps to eliminate rivalry in the policy-making bodies, the differences in the concentration and perspectives that each one pursues give rise to an unsuccessful execution of their nuclear blueprints and more importantly, national security. Indeed, nuclear abstractions, no matter how brilliant they can be, will only be useless until they are applied.
