Publisher's summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Cold War, then pay attention....

The seeds of the Cold War were sown toward the end of World War II. During the war, the United States and the Soviet Union were reluctant partners. The communist doctrine of the Soviets was decidedly at odds with the US notion of capitalism, free enterprise, and rugged individualism. But as is often the case in history, despite their differences, America and Soviet Russia had a common enemy that brought them together - Nazi Germany.

But soon after Truman took over the presidency of the United States, American and Soviet relations began to rapidly go south. Before the war was even over, disagreements arose over how the postwar world should be administered.

In The Cold War: A Captivating Guide to the Tense Conflict Between the United States of America and the Soviet Union Following World War II, you will discover topics such as:

  • Berlin: The lines have been drawn
  • Stemming the tide of communism in East Asia
  • Fighting the soviets for supremacy in space
  • How the Cold War calculus affected the Middle East
  • Cuba, Vietnam, and increasing social unrest
  • An East African cold war
  • Cold War secrets and a place called Area 51
  • Soviets, Afghanistan, and a little bit of salt
  • Ronald Reagan and the evil empire
  • Poland, a Polish pope, and Cold War solidarity
  • Star Wars: the biggest bluff in history
  • The Cold War comes to a close
  • And much, much more!
