A Soviet Invasion of Western Europe would have been Horrific — Market Mad House
Thankfully, one of the most horrific battles in human history never occurred. That horror was a Soviet invasion of Western Europe.
Frighteningly, such an invasion was a probability throughout the Cold War. Between 1945 and 1991, the Soviets maintained a massive military machine. The Soviet Red Army had 194 active Army divisions in 1984, the Red Army stationed 30 of those divisions in Eastern Europe and 65 in the Western Soviet Union.
