ORIENTATION 22. FEBRUARY 1969 Iron Mountain's report is a frightening satire that strikes American social science and the armor industry. The research report is a fictitious document showing what would happen if peace broke, and concludes in a sober scientific language that war is a necessity for our social system. In this way, the book - which has now come in Norwegian as the Fakkel book from Gyldendal - can also be read as a shocking revelation of habit thinking and war preparations. The Danish author Carl Scharnberg chooses to read the book as an authentic and serious document and gives in this chronicle a summary of the "research results".
