The Fourth War is a 1990 film directed by John Frankenheimer, set in late 1980s Berlin. Its title stems from a famous quote by Albert Einstein: "I cannot predict how the Third World War shall be fought, or with what; I can, however, predict that the Fourth World War shall be waged with sticks and stones."
During the Cold War, two gung-ho army colonels - one American (Roy Scheider), the other Russian (Jurgen Prochnow) - wage their own private war against each other on the German–Czechoslovak border. As the colonels' feud gradually escalates to frightening proportions, the threat of full-scale armed conflict between both their commands goes from possible to likely to all-but-imminent.
