Cold War Video

Jul 2018
I found and commented this old cold war video. A few, yet to be famous, Hollywood actors play in this educational video about what would happen to a suburb if New York was attacked by nuclear weapons.

The fear was very real indeed
Had the occasion to read the targeting list for the US strategic targeting , it got declassified a few years ago
Strategic Air Command Declassifies Nuclear Target List from 1950s

While the first wave of target was high priority military ( including locations in the middle of major cities )
the second and third wave of strikes encompass the total destruction of ALL the infrastructures
toward the end of the list , the targets were simply ...populations
it would make any rescue and recovery near impossible

one can suppose the soviets had an equivalent one
