Russia and America eyed each other with suspicion and hostility. World War Two was too recent to be forgotten and a nuclear Third World War remained a distinct possibility.
Post-war Europe was being rebuilt and Churchill, Stalin and Roosevelt had to find a way to work together for peace.The Cold War: History in an Hour will help you understand the dynamics of the politics of the time and how Europe and the rest of the world rebuilt themselves after World War Two.Love your history?

Disgusting amount of bias

Reeks of pro-capitalist bias. Breezes over Nixon and the involvement of Bolivia and worst of all seems to make excuses for USA war crimes in Vietnam. By all means avoid an audiobook with Pro-Soviet bias too. Find one without any bias and learn the facts. But by any means you can, avoid this unless you enjoy your history filtered though red, white and blue. History has no agenda. But this book sure does.
