This gripping mini-series was a major event when it screened. It told the hypothetical tale of a Russian military unit moving into Alaska in 1987 and sparking off World War III between the United States and the Soviets.

The show starred Rock Hudson, David (Starsky and Hutch) Soul, and Brian Keith. Cathy Lee Crosby delivered a sexy and rugged portrayal.

Director Boris Sagal was killed early in the production, in a helicopter accident in Oregon.
