To understand how the plan would work it’s important to understand the political and geographic realities of Europe at the time The continent was starkly divided between the two major superpower alliances The Warsaw Pact in the east, consisting of The Soviet Union itself, Poland, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria And NATO in the west, consisting of The United States itself, Canada, Portugal, Iceland, The United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, West Germany, Denmark, Norway, Italy, Greece and Turkey Since both Austria and Yugoslavia were remaining neutral, this created an invasion funnel for both sides acreos the east-west German border and this is where Germany’s geography becomes important There are two major things to see here first is the North German Plain, part of the larger North European Plain that’s a large, flat, and open plain, perfect for the mechanised units of The Warsaw Pact to blitz accros This, would be the prefeered route of invasion but an advance through here would leave out the most major US Airforce base in Germany at Frankfurt which if not destroyed, would allow the US to pour in reinforcements In the way of the Warsaw Pact advance towards Frankfurt are mountains to the east and the west but a valley in between, known at the time as, Fulda Gap Both sides recognised the importance of this vally as an invasion route into West Germany so both has large military forces in the area

  1. Russians – 'Be careful only to nuke the entire Western European border, we don't want things to escalate'.

  2. Even if NATO countires with nukes for some reason didn't launch their nukes in respons to NATO countires without nukes getting attacked, understand that countries without nukes still have biological weapons and gas to respond with. WW3 being all about nukes is not the complete picture, once you drop a nuke on someone the gloves are off and anything goes… WW3 is not just about nukes, it's the ultimate dirty war. If ww1 and ww2 did cocaine and fucked in a dumpester full of used needles infected with AIDS and ebola, that's ww3. Fuck the UN, fuck the Geneva convention.

  7. Soviets were so pissed that Germany blitzkrieged them, that they decided to blitzkrieg the whole EUROPE

  8. nato plans around that time assumed roughly the same. so the plan was sound. it wasnt insane. nuking would in itself become a deterrant. because the nuclear capable countries would know they could get nuked out of existance.

  13. The Last Broadcast. I recommend you listen to it. It is so "War Of The Worlds", except in the context of the Cold War in the 1980's.

  14. I know it's really simplistic and naive, but it would be great if people could resolve conflicts with just playing Chess, Go, or Ace Combat.

  15. Fun fact for everyone thinking that Switzerland was just chilling in that period. During this time, Switzerland had its own nuclear weapons program. It was about to enter the prototype phase around that time.

  20. Britain: lets invade the Soviet Union
    The Soviet Unions millitary is exposed to the world

  21. The framing is ORWELLIAN. The plan was a RESPONSE plan to a NATO first nuclear strike against Poland.

    Reply

  22. All this is fun to speculate but is actually pointless. My father was a SAC war planner and he said if the Soviets tried to stampede with a herd of tanks, the plan was to go nuclear in about 2 hours. This included strategic strikes on the U.S.S.R proper.

  23. Dream on kid 🤪 USA 🇺🇸 and other country with us will kick USSR ass even if China gets in the war game 🤔NATO is the power to hold one back till US kicks the other country in the ass 🤫🇺🇸

  24. Russia is not the only country that has these kinds of plans. The problem is they all end in M.A.D. (Unless you can proxy your way through it all).

  25. Wow… what a retarded and kinda pointless plan. XD

    Retarded and pointless sums of the Cold War in a nutshell though. Fortunately there were enough smart people in power to rein in the retards. >__>

  26. Pure fantasy. Doesn't even pretend to have a source. Actually, US & UK trained for a sudden full-scale attack, starting with the launch of ICBMs. And that isn't even denied. Which almost brought a real nuclear conflagration in 1983 . Yet poor Westeners persist in thinking Reagan an Thatcher were lesser enemies to them than the Soviet Union.

  27. As fucked as that is it's also kind of nice to know that the Soviets thought that by nuking countries that couldn't nuke back they were avoiding fallout 4 I still think that the response would've been deadly though

  28. USSR ignoring Britain, didn't work well for the Germans and wouldn't work well for the Soviets. The idea that this was even written up as a good idea is hilarious
