  Maybe too much of a whistle-stop tour?

| | See all MickyValentine's reviews (31)

Having read this book recently the main thing that I can take away from the experience is not having learnt an awful lot more than I already knew about the Cold War.

Whilst it is said by the author in the introduction that this book will be a whistle-stop tour of the Cold War I feel that this is where it lets itself down.

Also, being from Britian, I wanted to find out about what role we had in the Cold War. Sadly, as this book is written by an American, we Brits are often overlooked and as a result are mentioned flitingly throughout the book. Which was a disappointment.

Overall, if you are looking for a book about the Cold War that is brief and will not get bogged down in detail, then this is the book for you. If you want something more than a whistle-stop tour of the Cold War, then this book is not for you and should be avoided.
