•America's Atomic Bomb Tests #1: Operation Tumbler Snapper

Despite its effectiveness in the war, little was actually known about an A-bomb's power. In this series of tests in the Nevada desert, eight bombs were detonated, and the effects of the blasts were studied, using obsolete WWII aircraft, trees, jeeps, building materials, military equipment, and small shacks as subjects.

 

• America's Atomic Bomb Tests #2: Operation Hardtack

Seventy-four nuclear bombs were detonated as part of the Operation Hardtack series of nuclear tests in one of the few operations ever to be conducted at both the Pacific Proving Grounds and the Nevada Test Site.

 

• America's Atomic Bomb Tests #3: At Ground Zero

This full photographic coverage of the only tests ever conducted of the effects of a nuclear bomb on a typical American community contains the first-ever compilation of the full-length official documentaries that chronicle the effects of these tests as the full fury of a nuclear bomb is demonstrated on the typical American home.
