Summary
U.S. military planning during the Eisenhower administration emphasized nuclear weapons over conventional forces as a way to reduce defense spending. This program examines the events -- the Soviet bluffs, the launch of Sputnik and the exaggerations of Soviet military capabilities -- that led to U.S. fears of a "bomber gap" and later a "missile gap."
