The Atomic Eclipse of 1964 was the largest and most important event of the 20th century. The event in which 80% of all human life on earth was destroyed, and a good 15% was mutated horribly. When the Red War (also called "The Cold War") finally came to a boiling point with the death of President Joseph McCarthy, the inauguration of Vice President Richard Nixon as President, and Allied Forces battling Soviets in Russia and China, the battle finally ended in the inevitable: mutally assured nuclear destruction. The event had permanent, long lasting repercussions that changed the entire world forever.
