CHECKMATE IN BERLIN: THE COLD WAR SHOWDOWN THAT SHAPED THE MODERN WORLD

Giles Milton will recapture the febrile atmosphere of Berlin in the first four years after the Second World War. It will be an exhilarating, high-stakes tale of grit, skullduggery, and raw power. From the high politics of Yalta to the desperate scramble to break the Soviet stranglehold of Berlin with the greatest aerial operation in history, this will be the epic story of the first battle of the Cold War and how it shaped the modern world.
