In 1946, less than a year after the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the United States undertook twin atomic bomb test at Bikini Atoll in the Pacific. Known as "Operation Crossroads", the tests would usher in an era of atmospheric atomic testing that would last until 1963.

Featured on this DVD are four rare and historic films from the dawn of the atomic era. In "Operation Crossroads", and "Air Force and the Atomic Bomb", you'll learn about how the Bikini tests were conceived, and witness the tests and their aftermath. In "Contaminated Ship Handling", learn about the decontamination techniques that the Navy hoped to use in the wake of an atomic attack on the fleet. Finally, in "Operation Ivy", see the successful testing of the world's first hydrogen bomb. This full color movie makes clear the awesome destructive power of the atom.
