Second worst DVD I have ever seen.

"If you are wondering, the worst DVD I've seen is "The Ultimate Space Experience." This movie is still pretty bad though. I bought it invisioning a lot of big atomic bomb explosions. How could I be more wrong. One. Only one atomic bomb explosion happened during the entire flick. This DVD would only be useful for some kind of research paper, or maybe skeet shooting, not that I've ever tried that. Anyway, if you are planning on buying this, think twice, it's no good.Unlike the Ultimate Space Experience, I give this a one star rating, as opposed to zero. Screw Flanders. End."
Of historical interest - original training films.

"This is not a "Produced" documentary for consumers. The film "Trinity and Beyond" is recommended for that purpose. These are original military films produced by the armed forces for internal use, documenting the effects and deployment of nuclear weapons. They should be viewed as such, as a historical relic of a terrifying time in our past. The quality is that of a typical 16mm film, and some show significant wear. This is to be expected, given their origin. If you have an interest in this aspect of our cold war history, these authentic films are for you."
Typical military video but full of cool information!!

"This video is a good example of a DOD or military documentary, a bit on the dull side but chock full of interesting information. If you plan on only buying one video about Nuclear Weapons then "Trinity and Beyond" is the one of choice. However, this video fills in many holes that Trinity leaves untouched because it talks to a different audience. Not a great video but one that is a good addition to your nuke collection."

"I expected more of this. It was more like a 50s documentary than a PBS / Discovery of the 90s, which is what I expected."
