Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just watched an episode of The Cold War on youtube and obviously it discussed the arms race, in particular how it increased the risks of a third world war...but it left me thinking....

    1. Does a third world war have be nuclear?
    2.Didn't the arms race help stop nuclear, i.e, mutual assured destruction?

    I'm confused :?
