The Spying Game: War in the Shadows
War in the Shadows
Season 1  |  Episode 3  |  The History Channel  |  August 21, 2019

At the end of the 1980s, the Soviet army is being universally modernised, observed closely by western military intelligence in East Germany. Weapons-scouts in the field are constantly on duty, as are agents in high command or in intelligence service stations, for instance in the autumn of 1983, as NATO is practising new procedures of nuclear release. Moscow is concerned the exercise could be the beginning of a nuclear first strike. It takes a double agent to clear up this dangerous misunderstanding.
