Operation Hardtack-1 - Nutmeg 51538

After WWII, the world was pushed into the Cold War and strains were at a record-breaking high. The United States and Soviet Russia were involved in a weapons contest to fabricate the most incredible atomic weapon in case of war. A considerable amount of the American atomic tests were kept under top secret files yet now after almost 60 years, the United States Government has declassified this video. More than 10,000 atomic weapons test videos were recorded by the United States between the times of 1945 and 1962. The choice to declassify these videos originated from the need to protect the future generations.
