This documentary is overoptimistic in ability of NATO powers to react pollitically (as in reinforcing the forces in W.Germany), stop WP forces in the first days of war, and the importance of air power.
Good propaganda movie though.
P.s. this is neither relevant to the 1975-1985 time scale of WEE.
Agreed. That said, it's mind-numbingly painful to watch some of these films and how the producers fail to perform proper research prior to production. Soviet doctrine called for the immediate and deliberate use of chemical weapons should hostilities commence, not only military targets (personnel/instillation's), but also on civilian infrastructure in some cases. We knew that (NATO), they knew we knew that, and stated NATO doctrine called for retaliatory strikes through the use of battlefield nuclear weapons.
Either way, if it had occurred, most of Central and Western Europe, the former Soviet Union, and North America would be a nice big parking lot right now.
