It was H.G. Wells who wrote in his 1914 book The World Set Free that “…these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange even to them who used them.”

This historical film features extremely rare footage obtained from top-secret government archives that have just recently been declassified. It also includes mind-blowing segments of the nuclear bomb tests that were conducted for years in the United States, Russia, and China.

Trinity Site is the name of the place where the world’s first nuclear device was exploded on July 16, 1945. This documentary film presents the history of nuclear weapons starting that same year when the first atomic bomb was secretly assembled in a lab in the hot New Mexico desert a few weeks before. The location seemed far removed from the ravages of war, yet this event plunged the world into the Atomic Age. The film then continues offering details about all that went on up to 1963.   During this time, the world was held captive while the bomb was being tested. Seven years prior to July 1945, when Hitler invaded Austria in March of 1938, a series of secret events were set into motion.

German scientists had been making some outstanding discoveries, which bred fear in the United States and England. The possibility of German scientists finding out how to produce weapons of devastation was a huge threat to security. So in 1939, when Dr. Albert Einstein wrote a letter to President Franklyn Delano Roosevelt explaining the urgency of conducting research into Uranium fission, the president acted immediately and an advisory committee on Uranium was appointed.

A plethora of outstanding scientific stars worked along with Dr. Robert Oppenheimer to discover the secrets of this relatively recently created weapon of mass destruction. Their conclusion at the time was that only further testing would be able to answer all the questions that arose regarding the bomb they had created.

William Shatner, best known as Star Trek’s Captain Kirk, aptly lends his voice to narrate this amazing detailed historical report. An original score performed by the Moscow Symphony Orchestra makes this award-winning documentary an exceptional must-watch film, especially for history enthusiasts, scientists, and all those who enjoy conspiracy theories.

Previously unreleased and classified government footage portrays these powerful weapons and their effect in graphic detail. Watch all of this now.
