The Cold War was America's longest and most bizarre war. It was full of unlikely heroes and villains--people like Vasily Arkhipov who, although is little remembered today, literally saved the world from destruction. Commentator/podcaster Bill Whittle joins us on a tour of the personalities and moments that made the Cold War and shows that even Pizza Hut played a role in America's battle against communism.
