What would happen in a nuclear war?

Any nuclear explosion creates radiation, heat, and blast effects that will result in many quick fatalities. Direct radiation is the most immediate effect of the detonation of a nuclear weapon. It is produced by the nuclear reactions inside the bomb and comes mainly in the form of gamma rays and neutrons.
