Cold War Collectors Set

Spy Web: Atomic Spy Rings Fear of atomic annihilation is the thread which ran through the history of the Cold War. From 1942 American technical and economic superiority enabled the Western allies to steal a march on the Soviet Union in the race for the atomic bomb. But the Soviets used their genius for espionage to acquire the atomic secrets developed by the Manhattan Project, which built the bombs that ended the war in the Far East. Rockets! - Missiles Of The Cold War The United States military, beginning with captured German V-2s in the desert of New Mexico, developed the science and technology that would explore the outer reaches of the earth's atmosphere. This effort was redirected during the Cold War in a desperate race with the Soviet Union to deploy nuclear-tipped Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles, and later to orbit the first satellite. National security and national prestige coalesce in the dawn of the Space Age. Soviet Top Secret Weapons During the Cold War, much of the Soviet Union's economy went into developing weapons. With paranoia about U.S. technical superiority at a height, even the craziest sounding idea stood a chance – the military-industrial complex incubated ambitious, but often unfeasible weaponry. This episode focuses on the sinking of M-256, which lost 37 submariners, and the Ekranopian, a super-secret flying ship capable of carrying thousands of soldiers or missiles over great distances at high speeds under radar detection. The Korean War: Fire and Ice It was the first conflict to fall under the newly-formed United Nations’ watch; the first war where jet fighters became a common sight in the skies above the battlefield; the first major flashpoint of the Cold War and the nuclear age. As Eastern and Western powers circled each other like wary prize fighters, the Korean conflict soon became a proxy war as an intervention force led by the United States and its allies quickly found themselves pitted against a North Korean military assisted by the resources of newly-formed Communist China and the Soviet Union. The war raged for three years at a cost of over two million lives before an armistice delivered an uneasy peace in 1953; a legacy that still hangs in balance to this day across a divided Korean nation. Top Secret: Spy Planes of the Cold War This episode uncovers new information about secret spy plane missions flown over communist territories during the Cold War. Over 10,000 missions were flown; many were tracked and attacked by the U.S.S.R., Red China, and North Korea. Mystery of the U2 On May Day 1960, while the Soviet Union celebrated its most important holiday, its air defences went on full alert. Francis Gary Powers, flying an American U2 spy plane, was shot out of the skies and parachuted into the arms of communist authorities. Rockets! - Man In Space As U.S. and Russian relations chill, the technological race to place a man in space heats up. This episode chronicles events and people involved, from the Soviet's top-secret genius Korolov to the future of America's space program. Spy Web: Bay of Pigs Declassified The Bay of Pigs fiasco marked the first foreign policy defeat for the new Kennedy administration and the first time a CIA covert operation had been exposed to public scrutiny. This episode looks at the untold history of the Bay of Pigs and its importance on the evolution of covert operations, the Cuban Missile Crisis and recent U.S. relations with Castro's regime. Man Moment Machine: JFK & The Crisis Crusader October, 1962 – For thirteen days a desperate showdown puts the world on the brink of nuclear war. One man hopes to end this high-stakes gamble, but President John F. Kennedy can’t afford to make any mistakes. Only one machine can make this happen: the RF-8 Crusader. America Enters the War In late 1965, President Lyndon Johnson ordered large numbers of troops to South Vietnam to prevent what he thought was the takeover of the country by communists from
