Synopsis

A Brief History of the Cold War by John Hughes-Wilson

The Cold War was an undeclared war, fought silently and carefully between ideological opponents armed with the most fearsome weapons mankind has ever seen. 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, this book makes accessible for the first time one of the key periods to shape our world.

About the Author

Colonel John Hughes-Wilson, who retired from the British Intelligence Corps after 30 years' service that included the Falklands, Cyprus, Northern Ireland and the desert as well as the jungles of Whitehall, is an author, broadcaster and lecturer, who specialises in military history and intelligence.
