Summary
The world has long been familiar with two military challenges posed by the forces of world communism- the challenge of nuclear war and the challenge of large-scale conventional war. The United States and the free world meet these challenges by maintaining the ability to fight both kinds of war, an ability so powerful it has deterred Communists from starting either kind. This episode the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television show explains another technique of Communists warfare, the technique of unconventional warfare, "The Third Challenge." This challenge involves conspiracy, underground organization, and terror. It encourages guerrilla warfare and avoids open conflict while working to conquer other countries from within. Narrated by Alexander Scourby, this video from the National Archives and Records Administration deals with that third challenge and depicts the nation's capability to fight this type of war in the far-flung reaches of the globe
