Good overview of the various parts of the cold war. Narrator could use instruction on pronouncement of some of the names at points i struggled to figure out who he was speaking of and only having previous knowledge saved me.

If you want an overview of the cold war, the leaders and events that mattered, the countries whose fates were connected; this is where to start. A narrative that covered the period and explains the sequence of events in Europe, formation of West and East Germany and a whole lot more.
Reeks of pro-capitalist bias. Breezes over Nixon and the involvement of Bolivia and worst of all seems to make excuses for USA war crimes in Vietnam. By all means avoid an audiobook with Pro-Soviet bias too. Find one without any bias and learn the facts. But by any means you can, avoid this unless you enjoy your history filtered though red, white and blue. History has no agenda. But this book sure does.

not for someone with a good knowledge of the cold war but great as an intro
