This video contains recently declassified military footage of Operation Tumbler Snapper, a test of small-yield atomic weapons in which U.S. troops were subjected to atomic bomb blasts in hope of proving soldiers could survive small-scale atomic warfare. This program also includes test footage that shows the effects of atomic bomb blasts on buildings, vehicles, tanks, and trees.
