The Cold War was threatening to become hot at the end of the 1970s. The Soviets invaded Afghanistan, and started installing SS20 missiles that targeted NATO bases in Europe. Meanwhile, the US planned to install cruise missiles in bases across Europe. And the US failed to rescue hostages in Tehran. The Cold War was a time when both sides knew that war would be fought primarily in Germany. NATO allies France, the UK, and the US were stationed there, and the Bundeswehr (federal German army) had the largest number of men in Western Europe.
