I can promise you this: if the USSR had developed the nuke first, they would have taken us out before we had a chance to develop one.
Yeah I get the feeling if Stalin didn't die when he did there might have been nuclear war, Kruschev really backed down a lot of the extreme soviet policies.
The documentary essentially approaches the idea of a nuke going off from the perspective of Murphy's law, and provides evidence of how easy it is for it to occur. Good stuff. You know, especially if Dan Carlin didn't quite scare all of the shit out of you.
So glad there's a thread here
My favorite series of his is Blueprint for Armageddon.
It is about World War 1, the ffirst 5 minutes of the first Episode Armageddon 1 are the so eloquent and fascinating. He draws a picture of a series of events, that lead to WW 1 and how Germany's loss set the stage for Adolf Hitler.
Do me a favor and listen to the first five minutes and come back here and tell me what you think.
I think many of you will agree it some of Carlin's best work!
Just saying it's super awesome:)
For maybe 20 minutes, its worth it really
Again it's hardcore history Blueprint for Armageddon 1
