This video contains recently declassified military footage of Operation Tumbler Snapper, a test of small-yield atomic weapons in which U.S. troops were subjected to atomic bomb blasts in hope of proving soldiers could survive small-scale atomic warfare. This program also includes test footage that shows the effects of atomic bomb blasts on buildings, vehicles, tanks, and trees. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
America's Atomic Bomb Tests: Operation Hardtack
Sixty-two nuclear weapons were fired over the course of Operation Hardtack, an extensive series of tests performed on the Pacific Proving Grounds and the Nevada Test Site.

America's Atomic Bomb Tests: At Ground Zero
In the 1950s, the United States government wanted to research the effects of nuclear war on an average American community and consequently built several dwellings in the Nevada desert with the specific intention of destroying them with atomic bombs for scientific purposes. These experimental tests were captured on film, and this video captures the fearsome impact of the bomb as recorded in these tests. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
