To the end of the Cold War the very existence of humanity lay in this fragile balance of deterrence, known as Mutually Assured Destruction or, rather aptly, MAD.

I have been fan of this series , but this edition was a real disappointment. Factually, incorrect in many places ( the Viet Cong fought in the south) the book also omits many important points ( like Nixon's secret negotiations with Ho Chi Minh before he was inaugurated). The History in an Hour series is usually good; skip this one.

This is an informative and fast read. Takes a little longer that an hour, at least for me. Once you get past the misused and misspelled words it will give the reader information they may not have known about the Cold War. Being a Cold War veteran this was well received.

Mist of what is stated in the book I pretty much knew but there were snippets of info I did not know or had forgotten. A very good book to review what's been said, and having served in the military this is good memory jogger.

Easy to read, with no problems with the facts. Well informed. My only two buts are that he sometimes jump from rate to date, I know it is because he was trying to talk about each chapter subject, nevertheless this sometimes can be a little confusing. My second but is that is one-sided, from the American perspective. Even though is a really good book, plus it adds something that I think is really hard to achieve, a really good narrative!

It was like reliving my life; and made me recall so much of events I had lived through but had largely forgotten. Well written, accurate and yet entertaining. Well done

'The cold war' is a quick guide for those who want a quick overview of major cold war events. In my view, the events do not represent a neutral perspective. Although, the book does not analyse the events occurred during the cold war, but still it is an interesting effort to compile almost all the main events that took place during that era.
