More About the Author
More recently, I have spent many of my waking hours reading and researching in order to write and develop podcasts and books. I do this alongside the experienced team at www.itshistorypodcasts.com to ensure that all outputs are of a high-quality.
When not developing history podcasts or drafting books, I help organizations to improve themselves. In my spare time, I like to travel the world, finding out about the history and culture of those lesser-visited regions. I also enjoy art galleries, Peruvian cuisine, good wine, and reading great works of fiction.

also the narration was very interesting. a fast page turner book. simple language.
This e-book is an excellent companion to the author's series of podcasts on the same subject available from "Its History Podcasts".
I read, and read, and read the book as fast as I can, like a dragon hungry of information. It was all exciting. I usually skim history books to get a gist, but I read this carefully line by line due the style author has adopted.
And author mentioned this is one of the parts of the series, now I got to wait for the next! I am excited! I think I am in a position to even answer quiz on this section of history, I am that complete with this book.
Though not the most well written book, it is not poorly written either. I did actually get through this book and will hang onto it for a reference.
It's not a massive tome, just under 1,400 locations, so you get the highlights, but it does come with a large bibliography, allowing you to continue your learning. I need to check their website alos.
I picked this up while it was free, but well worth paying for.

I thought this was a decent review of the Cold War. The writing was a bit simplistic at times and there were grammatical errors here and there, but overall, worth the time. Thanks.Published on January 21, 2014 by Jeb
Very readable and coherent. While high-level and painted with broad strokes, I found this interesting and helpful. I enjoyed the companion piece as well.Published on December 15, 2013 by KCrimson
Easy read. Well thought out. Interesting. I lived through many of the events mentioned, but most as a child. It gave me more insight into the broader picture.Published on June 12, 2013 by s.behanna
A really good book, great information, but not to wordy. It's also easy to understand and talks about each subject up until the Cuban Missile Crisis.Published on May 26, 2013 by Gamer 224
Had no idea how all these events connected but this book was great. Great overview of all the events. A must read.Published on May 9, 2013 by Jess Cashin
Apparently this has been directed toward a younger audience. The author addresses the more critical issues occurring during the period but I would have preferred more of an in... Read morePublished on March 29, 2013 by R. Grabowsky
