Trivia

The films "experts" claim over and over again that the "red scare" was a manufactured propaganda campaign which it actually was not. It was for real and the Venona papers released in 1996 after the failure of the Soviet union proved the depth of Soviet spies that infiltrated the American government. See more »

A Great Film for the whole family to watch and enjoy!
31 May 2018 | by IndridC0ldSee all my reviews

Here's a chance for all you peace loving panty-wastes to see what it was like when men were men, nuclear tests were done in the atmosphere, and weapon yields were in the multi megaton range. Enjoy a comprehensive sampling of high yield thermonuclear tests that turned the useless tropical paradise of the Bikini Atoll, and the Marshal Islands into radioactive wastelands peppered with underwater craters. Watch as the U.S. conducts its lower yield tactical battlefield atomic weapons tests just a quick 90 minute drive from the city of Las Vegas. And for those with a wanderlust for international travel, enjoy tests performed in BOTH Russia and Mainland China.

This film contains no foul language, and absolutly no nudity or violence.
