The purpose of this blog is somewhat multifaceted. Primarily, I want to construct a detailed narrative and scenario based around a US/NATO-Soviet Union/Warsaw Pact conflict set in 1987. Attached to that will be extensive background information on the military situation in 1987.
Independent of the world war scenario and narrative, I will include a broad look at pop culture references, computer and board games, non-fiction books, novels, short stories, and alternate history timelines and such that are based on the premise of a NATO-Warsaw Pact war in the mid to late 1980s. Such a conflict is one of the more prolific ‘what-if’ questions that have been raised in recent times.
Having said that, this blog will not be an alternative history alien space bats type endeavor. Instead, I hope to make it an objective look at how such a war potentially could have played out.
It is my hope that this blog will be informative and entertaining. Feedback is always desired and welcomed.
