9780304352906: The History of Warfare: Cold War

World War Two left two compelling, indelible images that colored the decades to come: the immense force of the Soviet Union's Red Army and the horrific devastation wrought by the atomic bombing of Hiroshima/Nagasaki. For the next half-century, the great powers prepared themselves for another, deadlier international conflagration...one that never happened. Politicians and strategists devoted time, intellectual energy, and financial resources figuring out how to fight--or avoid--nuclear war; meanwhile the industrial complex dedicated itself to producing ever more complex weaponry. Through thoughtful analysis and striking photography, follow the changing expectations during this period, and how these expectations were influenced by the actual experience of limited warfare. From the evolution of nuclear strategy and technology to the effect of Korea and Vietnam to contemporary conflicts like Desert Storm, you'll see how a revival of conventional strategy has raised the possibility of a revolution in military affairs.

About the Author:

Lawrence Freedman is the Chairman of the Board of War Studies at King's College, London. He is an expert on Nuclear Strategy and an advisor to the British Government on military issues. He is currently writing the Official History of the Falklands War.

From Publishers Weekly:

The latest installment in Cassell's History of Warfare series is Lawrence Freedman's The Cold War, a highly readable and heavily illustrated text designed to gratify the war buff, the high school history student and almost everyone in between. Political cartoons, maps, diagrams and plentiful black-and-white and color photos are interspersed in chapters that consider the Cold War from its origins in the difficult post-WWII negotiations to the 1989 breach of the Berlin Wall heralding its demise. Military historian John Keegan, the general editor of the series, has already put out more than a dozen titles (The Napoleonic Wars; Wars of Empire; etc.) and promises over half a dozen more.
