The Cold War: The World at the Brink

£8/£7 concession

From the Cuban Missile Crisis to the fall of the Berlin Wall, the ebb and flow of power between East and West lay at the heart of the Cold War. Historian, filmmaker and Cold War expert Taylor Downing explores the unknown crises of the Cold War and why the Soviet leaders nearly pressed the nuclear button in 1983 - an account described by Tom Holland as “gripping and frankly terrifying”.
