Armistice, [the hot war], by Harry Turtledove

Set in an alternate 1950s in which General MacArthur ignited a nuclear war that nearly destroyed the planet. In 1952, American cities lie in ruins. President Harry Truman, in office since 1945, presides over a makeshift government in Philadelphia, suffering his own personal loss and fearing for the future of democracy. Stalin's vise-hold on power in the USSR persists. Unwilling to trust the Soviet tyrant, Truman launches a long-planned nuclear strike on the city of Omsk--killing Stalin and plunging the Red Army into leaderless, destructive anarchy. Meanwhile, the Baltic states careen toward rebellion, and Poland is seized by rebels bred on war. Has Truman struck a blow for peace or fueled more chaos? Sequel to "Fallout". 2017
