Forgot to reply to this! My bad.Some of the big fish like Buchanan would have went with DC and some of the other nuked cities but sadly for the US there were plenty of little Buchanans who were still around after 7/4/71. So does DC, Philadelphia ,Boston and a half dozen others mean 9 cities in total ? Is there an official list ? Looking forward to the American tour which one assumes will include some particularly stomach churning areas of the South. A big part of this story that I think you are successfully continuing is that as much as this world is slowly changing for the better it still has very far to go,,,,
Cities I've listed as nuked on July 3/4 1971 - Washington, Philadelphia, Boston, Detroit, Seattle, Toronto, Ottawa, and San Francisco I'd already listed and made "official." Maybe KC or Denver as well?
And yes, that's part of why I always felt "wanting" with this story, since, besides the brief trip by Suzanna Weiss to London, the story is so narrowly set in Berlin (which is unusual for HT, since most of his books have these world-spanning casts).
