Keeping the Old Game Alive

Haut de la page

Along the vigilantly patrolled line separating East and West Germany lie half the world's conventional (non-nuclear) armed forces--the Warsaw Pact forces to the east, the NATO Alliance to the west. It is here in Europe that military experts predict the next major world war will begin, initially with conventional weapons. In Keeping the Old Game Alive, top military leaders from both NATO and Warsaw Pact countries describe how any future superpower confrontation might evolve.

Part five of the seven-part series War, hosted by Gwynne Dyer, examining the nature, evolution and consequences of modern warfare.
