The Cold War – an era when nuclear weapons kept the entire world on edge, as political and military tensions simmered among global super powers. With great change on the horizon, the world watched as Russia, China and the United States flexed their military muscles on the global stage, each one determined to reshape the world in their own image. Premiering Wednesday, October 12 at 10/9c, American Heroes Channel’s (AHC) new eight-part series COLD WAR ARMAGEDDON transports viewers back forty years as the horrors of World War II ended, and a new kind of war began. When the push of a single button could trigger mass destruction, COLD WAR ARMAGGEDON examines how the world was changed forever in one of the greatest power struggles in history.
In the premiere episode of COLD WAR ARMAGGEDON titled “Rise of the Superpowers,” two superpowers face off, poised for swift and terrible action, threatening to annihilate one another at a moment’s notice. It was the start of an all-out arms race, a propaganda battle and at times, a very dangerous game. This is beginning of the Cold War.
