On the Brink of Thermonuclear War – Live Webcast
The Cold War gave birth to an age where nuclear weapon scares were a bitter reality. With military build-ups, economic competition, and cultural insecurities, relations between the U.S. and U.S.S.R. were on the verge of disaster. But how much do we really know about what happened between 1978—1995? Will history repeat itself, leading us even closer to thermonuclear war?
Find out by joining American Military University as we analyze the inner-workings of the socio-political decisions that steered the U.S. and U.S.S.R. through the most dangerous incidents of the Atomic Age.
Leading the discussion, we are joined by Dr. Steven Schwalbe, who served as the lead analyst for Soviet General Staff-directed military exercises in the Defense Intelligence Agency in the 1980s. Additionally, during his Air Force career, Colonel Schwalbe served as Assistant Defense Intelligence Officer for the Middle East and Terrorism; Pentagon IG Inspection Director; Air Attache to Korea; Air Attache to Jordan; and, Chief of the Air Force Military Assistance Program in Jordan.
