Book Overview

From the dean of Cold War historians (New York Times): an important new reckoning with the hostile relationship that defined our age.It began during the Second World War, when American and Soviet troops converged from east and west. Their meeting point a small German city became part of a front line that solidified shortly thereafter into an Iron Curtain. It ended in a climactic square-off between Ronald Reagan s America and Gorbachev s Soviet Union. In between were decades of global confrontation, uncertainty, and fear.Drawing on new and often startling information from newly opened Soviet, Eastern European, and Chinese archives, this thrilling account explores the strategic dynamics that drove the Cold War, provides illuminating portraits of its major personalities, and offers much fresh insight into its most crucial events. Riveting, revelatory, and wise, it tells a story whose lessons it is vitally necessary to understand as America once more faces an implacable ideological enemy.
