Storyline

Although they were allies during WWII, the United States and the Soviet Union, fueled by their fundamental ideological differences, embarked on what would be called the Cold War starting in the post-WWII era. As both sides would eventually have nuclear and atomic bomb technology which potentially spelled the end of the world if used, both sides instead largely used propaganda to win the Cold War. The propaganda was both official (i.e. issued by the government) and unofficial, and was designed to make its own side look good while making the other side look bad. The propaganda was aimed to its own citizens, to the other side and to others around the world, who were often looking to the two superpowers for support. One problem often was that the propaganda had to match the reality that people saw and faced on the ground. Written by Huggo

Biased as h***
12 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

This show is nothing but propaganda. It has en immaculate number of historical fallacies and inaccuracies that I take are deliberate when they exist in such vast numbers. Not only does it paint the monstrous picture of the Soviet Union. It glorifies the United States so much that it feels the need to bend history. I threw up a little in my mouth. It hurts to see that people in this day and age still feel anger and hate towards each other that they have pt make propaganda about historical events that are long passed.

I do not recommend anyone watching this show. It has no historical value and can only make you dumber.

I wonder why it has been given 7 Stars.

That's all Jørgen
