Single DVD

Beginning in the 1950s, American and Soviet scientists engaged in a dangerous race to see who could build and detonate the world's largest bomb. The results exceeded all expectations about how big a bomb could be built. This is an epic story where the United States led the way, but then left the field clear for the Soviet Union to break all records. The story of the race to build the World's Biggest Bomb has never been fully told.

Broader audience targeted in title

Comments about PBS Secrets of the Dead: World's Biggest Bomb DVD:

Top Secret and USA Castle/Bravo played 2nd fiddle.
Seems it would limit USA viewers. How these tests effect the environment and us today
would cover larger and younger audience. I like it because I was in it...Bob Mackenzie USMC Castle/Bravo & Wigwam. Curtiss Atomic Marines.

I WAS A MEMBER OF THE MARINE DETACHMENT USS CURTISS AV-4 ON OPERATION CASTLE-BRAVO. THIS IS A VERY ACCURATE DESCRIPTION OF WHAT HAPPENED ON THAT OPERATION. A SIGNIFICANT PIECE OF NUCLEAR HISTORY.

As a U. S. Naval Officer during this period, I served in support of all the U.S. Tests in the Marshall Islands. The program is an excellent coverage of the major events.
