The Cold War: A Very Short Introduction | [Robert J. McMahon]

The Cold War: A Very Short Introduction

The massive disorder and economic ruin following the Second World War inevitably predetermined the scope and intensity of the Cold War. But why did it last so long? And what impact did it have on the United States, the Soviet Union, Europe, and the Third World? Finally, how did it affect the broader history of the second half of the twentieth century--what were the human and financial costs?

    ""The Cold War (Unabridged)" by Robert J. McMahon"

    This audiobook gives quite a good but broard overview of the cold war however, it didnt really get the point of any of the major events of the cold war such as the hungarian uprising, the prague spring, the cuban missile crisis or the vietnam war.
