A Brief History of the Cold War

by

A Brief History of the Cold War Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Cold War was an undeclared war, fought silently and carefully between ideological opponents armed with the most fearsome weapons mankind has ever seen. Here, author Hughes-Wilson takes a cool look at this war, from the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 to the collapse of the Berlin Wall in 1989, and the dissolution of the USSR thereafter. He examines the suspicion and paranoia — on both sides — of the greatest stand-off in history. Written by one of Britain's leading popular military historians, A Brief History of the Cold War makes accessible for the first time one of the key periods to shape our world.

About the Author

Colonel John Hughes-Wilson served in the British Army's Intelligence Corps for 30 years. His books include The Puppet Masters: Spies, Traitors and the Real Forces Behind World Events and Military Intelligence Blunders.
