Seven Days to the River Rhine
Only revealed in 2005, the once top-secret “Seven Days to the River Rhine” allegedly exposed the Warsaw Pact’s plan to win a nuclear World War III against the NATO powers boarding the Iron Curtain during the Cold War. In the military simulation, it was thought that NATO would actually be the first to strike, hitting Poland and Czechoslovakia with tactical nuclear weapons in an effort to cut off East Germany in advance of a NATO invasion. To counter, Seven Days to the River Rhine prescribed an aggressive response. Nearly 200 nuclear bombs, including some up to 500-kilotons, would rain down West Germany, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, and Italy as the Warsaw Pact sought to push the Iron Curtain to the Rhine River.
