Even though this is basically a textbook of sorts, I really liked it. It was easy to read, easy to reference specific topics. It gives a brief yet fairly accurate overview of the Cold War between Russia and the United States. Read full review

Review: America, Russia and the Cold War 1945-2006

User Review  - Craig - Goodreads

Excellent, readable, updated history of the Cold War with plenty of updates following the end of the Soviet threats in the early 1990s. It doesn't go into amazing detail on any specific event but does offer a thorough look at the whys and hows of world affairs from 1945 to the present. Read full review
