First Strike

While navigating through youtube I found this documentary. It's divided in four parts but very interesting and grasps your imagination (in a dark way). It was filmed in the very early eighties when I was a teenager (14?). When watching it I become anxious because I do remember those days, specially the days of US military weakness due to Jimmy Carter's administration. When warching this documentary I wonder how close was the Western World to fail (using J.R.R. Tolkien's words).

Anyway, watch it, is very interesting:

Part 2: ... re=related

Part 3: ... re=related

Part 4: ... re=related
