|Description||From the end of the Second World War to the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 the world lived within the shadow of the Cold War.
For almost half a century the East and the West eyed each other with suspicion and often with hostility. Two ideologies, two political systems, two cultures, two superpowers fought for dominance, each firm in the belief that history would prove them right.
And all the time the threat of a Third World War remained a distinct possibility, the spectre of nuclear weapons a constant fear.
This, in an hour, is how it all happened.
"HISTORY FOR BUSY PEOPLE"
*History In An Hour* is a series of e-books to help the reader learn the basic facts of a given subject area with as little effort as possible.

It's all here in a straight narrative. No embedded links to divert your attention, nor a daunting book of 600 pages with a 35 page introduction. Just straight in, to the point, sixty minutes, done. Then, having absorbed the basics, you may feel inspired to explore further.
