Encyclopedia > Square Leg
square leg is also a cricket fielding position.

Square Leg was a 1980 British Government exercise that assessed the effects of nuclear war. In it, 150 nuclear weapons were assumed to fall on Britain with a total explosive power of 280.5 megatons. This was felt to be a reasonably realistic scenario, although the report stated that we might expect a total strike in excess of 1000 megatons.

Mortality was estimated at 29 million; serious injuries at 7 million; short-term survivors at 19 million.
