The following documentary produced in 1982 provides an in depth view of the effects of a one megaton nuclear war head detonated in London.
For the prepper-minded individual this short documentary may provide some insights into preparing for and surviving the three major effects of a nuclear detonation:
Fall Out (Radiation)
Among other things, the documentary covers preventing direct exposure to heat rays, construction of emergency shelters, and surviving fall out.
Our view is and always has been that we will see a nuclear detonation in a major city during our lifetimes. For those who lived during World War II this already happened. This is, in our opinion, a high probability event over the course of the next several decades. With tens of thousands of nuclear weapons already produced, the chances that one of these will get into the hands of the wrong person or people are higher now than ever before, especially with “rogue” states entering the nuclear production fray.
It’s hard to believe that nuclear weapons were produced as only a deterrent. We, meaning our respective governments, did not produce these weapons just so that we could look at them and admire their designs. At some point, they will be used on the populations of the globe – for whatever reasons the-powers-that-be determine.
The documentary above discusses the heat, blast and radiation damage from a one kiloton nuclear weapon. Today, the US, China and Russia have weapons with multiple war heads of up to 100 Megatons.
