War has come.

"1985. Public uprising in Eastern Berlin. Despite Chairman of the State Council Honecker declaring martial law and deploying military units to patrol the streets, the unrest only escalates. 7th October. Violence erupts during the Day of the Republic parade, when unknown gunmen open fire against the marching soldiers.

Joachim Herrmann, the DDR Agitation and Propaganda Secretary is convinced the conflict is instigated by the West and publicly accuses the CIA and subversive groups in Western Berlin for trying to destabilize the socialist republic. Honecker orders a new blockade of Berlin.

An emergency security council is held in the UN, where Russia vetoes a motion to lift the blockade. Unrest spreads throughout the Warsaw Pact countries and spills over into the Soviet republics. These events coincide with major NATO military exercises in West Germany that have sent the border areas into high alert.

General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Andropov, hardliner and former head of the KGB, sees no other option but to launch a preemptive strike against NATO in order to protect Berlin and preserve the unity of the Warsaw Pact.

THE COLD WAR IS ABOUT TO TURN HOT."
