1950 ... attacking a port!

... fear and imaginations ran highest during the early part of the Cold War. In 1950 Soviet Russia had only a small number of atomic bombs and an air force only capable of 'one-way' trips to the North American continent. But a reliable and coordinated air defense had yet to be developed and memories of Pearl Harbor were fresh. Everyone knew that just a few bombers getting through to their targets would be catastrophic! above from LIFE magazine
