The American Bomb in Britain

This chapter takes forward the emerging co-operation between Britain and the United States in the field of weapon supply. British authorities were both gratified and suspicious of the new arrangements whereby nuclear weapons would be transferred to the RAF, with first the tactical Canberras and then the strategic V-bombers being modified under American supervision for this purpose. This work, and the need to adopt common safety and security procedures, drew the two air forces into much closer co-operation in a strategic partnership.
