The stories of some of the most secret and outrageous operations that were conceived, many of which would have changed the course of history From a NATO nuclear attack on the Soviet Union to a Warsaw Pact land assault on Western Europe; from building an electric fence between North and South Vietnam to building a US base on the moon; it may all sound unlikely, but during the Cold War these operations and others were seriously considered by both sides. Cold War Plans That Never Happened tells the stories of some of the most secret and outrageous operations that were conceived, many of which would have changed the course of history; from the US plan to oust Guatemalan President Jacobo Arbenz to Chiang Kai Sheks plans to re-invade China from Taiwan to experiments in psychokinesis. On a spread-by-spread basis, this book explains the context of each planned operation and explores whether it might have been successful, and what the impact might have been if it had gone ahead. Arranged by continents, the book includes easy-to-read factboxes, informing the reader of the date, intended purpose and forces involved.
