K-19: The Widowmaker
The one-upmanship between the US and Russia during the cold war is an extreme example of what can quickly happen when two adversaries are unable to find common ground. Can you think of times when same attitude may cause us to participate (although usually in much smaller ways) in this type of behavior?
K-19 is a dramatized recreation of a very serious incident that may have brought the world into World War III. National Geographic’s involvement with this movie includes a massive web site devoted to submarines and their use in military operations. Check it out at http://crater.nationalgeographic.com/k19/
