Many of them would also shoplift, which I find quite funny (especially the Ponomareva story). But it must be added that many of those athletes were "trained" on the geopolitics, politics, and situation of the state they were going to, and not simply sent to a richer country without any preparation. Plus, many of those athletes believed in communism (or at least, in a brighter future for the Soviet Union), at least during the first decades of the Cold War, and that the interpretation they would have of what they would see in Western country was utterly different than what we imagine.

I would send you a link to a very good reference that I really enjoyed reading, but it is only in french... (here is the link anyway, just in case, because I thought it was a great book :éros-sport-champions-soviétiques-1930-années/dp/B07KZKCDSV/ref=asc_df_B07KZKCDSV/?tag=googshopfr-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=313731032092&hvpos=1o4&hvnetw=g&hvrand=2737963550103629895&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9056143&hvtargid=pla-696885370444&psc=1&tag=&ref=&adgrpid=63910952098&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=313731032092&hvpos=1o4&hvnetw=g&hvrand=2737963550103629895&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9056143&hvtargid=pla-696885370444)

I've just finished "Command And Control" which is pretty engaging and very interesting. It covers the period from Trinity to the 80s. I also very much enjoyed "The Evolution of Nuclear Strategy" which covers the game theory side of how things developed during the arms races.

Eric Schlosser's Command and Control is a great read too.

> Two helicopters actually pursuing something into Canada would have presumably had one hell of a writeup.

Nah. "Arcturus".

One comment on that incident I haven't seen anywhere online was relayed to me by someone who was there. Apparently, on the second night of that incident, there was some radio traffic, presumably between the weapons storage area and the base security just simply stating "Our friends in black have returned." And then a minute or two of base security trying to get more information being met by dead air before they got a response.

If you're interested in this specific Loring AFB incident, or even interested in just the weapons storage area itself, I have a book that I could recommend. A warning though, he's not a very good writer. Technically it's fiction (and that's not made terribly clear on amazon), but it seems to me that a lot of the content is fact retold with a fictional narrative. Maybe easier than trying to get the USAF to sign off on it.
