  • Websites/resources on WWIII

    Does anyone have any good links to resources on the war between NATO and WP that never happened? I've been reading Hackett's "WWIII" and would like to learn more about what was going on back then.

    Thanks,
    Brian

    If you enjoy that book, you will certainly like The War That Never Was, by Michael Palmer. Same genre but encompasses the entire world.

        If you haven't bookmarked them yet, you might want to check those two sites :


        Not exactly devoted to what-if NATO-WP scenarios but lots of information.

            Funny enough, I have several old books I've held onto since a conventional WWIII is my favorite 'what if' (right before WWII). If you have a second-hand book store around check them out. Sometimes people sell off their old books like Air Force Almanac (awesome resource... especially the '84 US/USSR one) and any number of over-sized book from the 80's. Salamander Press published a whole slew of war-tech related books (fighters, tanks, ships, the PLA, etc.).
            If voting could really change things, it would be illegal.

              Thanks nemo,

              I actually found the Parallel History Project late last night and haven't had a chance to look at it yet. I'll check out the other one today.

              Take care,
              Brian

                So far, I'm about half way through, it's pretty interesting. Most of what I've read has dealt with the political situation, planning, and force overviews. The attack has just begun and the initial land war has been covered. The discussion is more operational, but does talk about specific tactics used by both NATO and WP. It appears that he breaks down the naval and air components in more detail as well, but I haven't made it there yet.

                  That's a good idea. I've been meaning to go looking for used books stores and this seems like a good excuse.

                  Take care,

                    For general Cold War information (including battle plans), try this:

                    http://www.isn.ethz.ch/php/

                    Came across it in my research. Looks like it has a lot of good articles.

                    From the CIA, "Soviet Strategies and Capabilites for Multi-theater War."

                    Go here,

                    http://www.foia.cia.gov/

                    and search for "Soviet Strategies." (The document should be on page 3 or 4.)

                      Tom Clancy has "Red Storm Rising" if you're into that.
                      Scientists have announced they've discovered a cure for apathy. However no one has shown the slightest bit of interest !!

                            Try this:
                            DTIC Collections

                            There is also a sequel, subtitled "The Untold Story". Both are quite good.
