Cold War Soviet Threat Analysis

This classic Cold War film shows a U.S. analysis of Soviet capabilities, and draws heavily on a Library of Congress report, most likely the 1977 “Collins Report on American and Soviet Armed Services, Strengths Compared 1970-76” for much of its data. The film may or may not have been seen by Ronald Reagan when he was running for President, but many of the ideas presented within it — that the USA is falling dangerously behind its principle adversary — were repeated by Reagan during his election campaign against Jimmy Carter.
