Borden was executive director of the United States Congress Joint Committee on Atomic Energy from 1949 to 1953 and wrote the famous letter that led to physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer being accused of being an agent of the Soviet Union. One of the first books to appear on the topic of nuclear weapons strategy, 'There Will Be No Time' espouses the idea that "another war will begin and end with a rocket-Pearl-Harbor that will bring about instantaneous destruction to all our great cities and industrial plants."
