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 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. During the Second World War, for example, exactly what was Dunkirk about, or the Normandy Landings? During the Cold War, what happened during the Cuban Missile Crisis, why was there a wall in Berlin?

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.

Quick, easy-to-read and engaging history... ebooks to read in an hour.

*The Cold War In An Hour* is the first title in the History In An Hour series to be turned into an iPhone app.

Other titles in the pipeline include:

*World War Two In An Hour*

*Nazi Germany In An Hour*

*The American Civil War In An Hour*
