    History for busy people. The Cold War: History in an Hour gives a brilliant overview of the unusual and non-violent war between East and West that lasted nearly fifty years.From the end of World War Two to the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 the world lived within the shadow of the Cold War. Russia and America eyed each other with suspicion and hostility.

    Story

    Having lived through this war as a child and young adult, this was a good read to draw everything together into a cohesive whole. I can now look back and see the connection between different events during this time period. Because this war was never declared as a "real" war, it is difficult to give a connected play by play interpretation of events, but the author does a good job of giving an understandable overview.

    The narrator does an excellent job-he is British and with his dry sense of humor actually had me laugh aloud once or twice over his droll interpretation.

    This book would be helpful to anyone wanting some background info before reading a book taking place during this time period or a book going into more detail on any aspect of this war.
