Three Defenses Book of Illustrations

The Three Defenses campaign to organize the population to prepare for nuclear, chemical and biological attack started during the Cultural Revolution and continued well after the end. There are 152 illustrations in total.

It is interesting to note the difference in the images in this book, printed in 1979, and posters printed in the early 1970's - the absence of citizen militia is striking, indicating a reliance on a more professional response to any attack.

This book is titled, 'Three Defenses General Knowledge Picture Album'.

The book was printed by the Beijing Military Command Headquarters in June 1979. It measures 18.5cm (7.25 inches) x 13cm (5 inches).
