Research on documents from former E. German
military archives and interviews with former E German generals revealed
that in 1983 Soviet generals warned secretly that there was a real
threat of nuclear conflict; the nearness to nuclear conflict was greater
than in the Cuban Missile Crisis. The reason was that they
believed NATO exercise Able Archer '83 to be a possible full-scale
nuclear assault. They were already worried by Reagan's Star Wars
initiative and the planned siting of Cruise missiles in Europe.
