Love history? Know your stuff with History in an Hour.

From the end of World War Two to the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia and America eyed each other with suspicion and hostility as the world lived in the shadow of the Cold War. As post-war Europe was rebuilt, Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin struggled to maintain peace among the former Eastern and Western Allies. Two ideologies, two political systems, two cultures, two superpowers became entrenched in a fight for dominance, each firm in the belief that history would prove them right.

The Cold War: History in an Hour is the concise account of the political tensions that arose as the world rebuilt after World War Two - an era beset by the constant fear of nuclear weapons and the looming threat of a Third World War.
