PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Trailer
1949: Sometimes, a wounded animal just wants to kill. Nearly broken by Hitler’s Nazis, Russia was wounded and Stalin was cagey and murderous. After sixteen years of Depression or World War, soldiers and their sweethearts might want peace—but others wanted war.
As spies killed each other and the Cold War turned hot in Korea, it appeared that the world might annihilate itself in a Third World War. Two men stood on the brink against each other.
Ironically, they were both Americans.
