The winnable unwinnable war

http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/nukevault/ebb336/index.htm Takes a 1950’s look into winning the no win war.   The film a training film is slightly scary military perspective and puts a few of the myths about nuclear deterrent politicians give a bad name.

I’m minded to point you here (my blog and related bits) but somewhere between those two links some truths can probably be found.   Credit must be given to the film maker at the time for not assuming it would be always winnable.

The sixty minute film consisting of ten minute bits gives another side to the then to occur cuban missile crisis.  Worth a look at.
