I'll just leave these here. ☺️

Today we’re talking to Neil Gussman who trained on the M60A1 tank in the 1970s. This was the standard main battle tank of the US Army from the 1960s through to the 1980s.

Today we talk again with Neil Gussman who was an M60A1 tank commander in West Germany tasked with defending the Fulda Gap which was a key likely Warsaw Pact attack route. We talk about his rushed initial deployment where he faced Warsaw Pact tanks across the border, details of various exercises he was in and how the US troops interacted with the West German population.

Fascinating interview with a former US Army Pershing II launch officer in Germany.

 

refering to old politicians and power they have, a famous singer of ours said, "I wouldn't give my 80 yrs old granny to mess with nuclear bombs"... from that angle, a 23 yrs old with a missile command is a valid choice :D

IRON CURTAIN: East German Border in the Cold War

Nice.

15:40 - 15:55 is American Cold War propaganda at it's best. Fulda Gap an "historical invasion route from the east" lol.

Napoleon in  1813 was retreating after defeat at Leipzig. The only ones that where invading at this route where the Americans themself in 1945 in eastern direction.

You know that if it was shown on TV then it's a historical fact, right?
