Its odd there are no 'speculative history' cold-war-gone-hot movies out there. Well, that 's not entirely true. But they usually involve nervous politicians sitting in underground war rooms waiting for the nuclear bombs to fall.

Terrific dramatized doc.  An xnt updated "The War Game".  

Obviously would make a great campaign:  A surprise amphib Soviet attack thru the Baltic to N. germany.  Much of NATO air power destroyed on the ground.  And then...

and who can forget "World War III", Soviet ground forces vs US National Guard troops in Alaska.

No excuses! They've promised it and now I want USS New Jersey firing her 16in guns in my scenarios... along the Weser! 😂

Posted in the reforger thread, but might be missed due to the Swiss invasion...

This series gives some political background and has a bit of military interest. 

Worth digging out and might be other half friendly to watch together....

Excellent playlist. Includes this gem, about terrain in the 1 BR Corps area of northern Germany. Not immediately relevant to CMSF, not yet, though I find the part about German woods helpful.
