Summary
The end of World War II brought a desolate European landscape with two countries and two ideologies in an epic face-off. Sir David Frost and noted historian Michael Beschloss examine a multitude of essential topics and events of the period, including the roots of the Cold War, the early challenge to Truman, the Berlin Airlift, the Korean War and the spread of "red scare" paranoia, the arms race and the threat of nuclear Armageddon, Khrushchev, the Berlin Wall, the Cuban missile crisis, and the growing quagmire of Vietnam as navigated by Presidents Johnson, Nixon, and Ford. Frost's interviews with Alexander Haig, Helmut Schmidt, Bobby Kennedy, Henry Kissinger, Margaret Thatcher, George Bush, and others provide insight into the nerve-wracking tensions and high drama of this pivotal struggle in world history
