A friend asked about the following novel he read in the 1980's which he
thinks might be called the Pendulum:
The US and the Soviet Union work together to get a base on the
moon. Eventually this cooperative measure falls apart and the moon base
is split into US/Soviet sides with a cold war raging on Earth. There are
killer satellites around the planet, half controlled by each
government. When the planetary governments decide to make the war hot, the
US and Soviet moon base commanders step in and take over the satellites,
refusing to let the Earth be blown apart.
Does this ring any bells? Any one have a author and full title? Thanks
for your help.
