Read a story back in the 1980s in a sci-fi anthology about England just after a nuclear war. The government was trying to rebuild and everyone was suffering from radiation poisoning. Towards the end a mob of survivors captured several people in the government and wanted to know who started the war. I remember other nuclear war stories in the book as well just can't remember any details.
I seem to recall the cover being reddish-pink. Most if not all of the stories dealt with Cold War/Nuclear War themes. No aliens or spaceships. I could be misremembering but the title of the anthology was something like "The Best Science Fiction Stories of 1982". I've obviously Googled for that a few times, even changing the date and none of what I found seemed to be the one I was looking for. I could have missed something though. I do not remember any of the authors' names either (been too long ago).
