Swan Song - Robert R. McCammon, Tom Stechschulte

This is really interesting so far, but I might have made a mistake in listening to the audio of this 1987 story of apocalypse & aftermath concurrently with reading Andromeda Strain, a 1969 story of an almost-apocalypse. Both feature federal government Cold War shenanigans, and my brain keeps mixing up the storylines.
