Narrator Adrian Mulraney will remind listeners of a professor who doesn't need to raise his voice to hold his students' attention. His deep voice is authoritative but warm, and listeners will find themselves quickly absorbed by Merrilyn Thomas' exposé of the reality behind the war between capitalism and communism. Using evidence from recently-opened archives, Thomas reveals the layers of complexity behind the Cold War - a drawn-out battle that was fought by intelligence agencies, propaganda, and covert agents - and in the process, explores and assesses its legacy today.

This audiobook is a brilliant guide to the Cold War for absolute beginners. It gives insightful information
on what happened during the heady days of the Cold War, especially in areas that you might not know about such as Africa and the Middle East. It includes information regarding the 1962 Cuban Missile crisis and the Vietnam War and it's not just one sided either.
