Cold War, 1945–1991

 
It is more than twenty-five years since the end of the Cold War, now a generation old. It began seventy-five years ago, in 1944—long before the last shots of the Second World War had echoed across the wastelands of Eastern Europe—with the brutal Greek Civil War. The battle lines are no longer drawn, but they linger on, unwittingly or not, in conflict zones such as Syria, the Sahel, Ukraine and the Korean Peninsula. It was an era of mass-produced AK-47s and inter-continental ballistic missiles, with brushfire proxy wars, revolutions and the pervasive threat of global nuclear conflagration the press of a button away.

This series examines the wars, the campaigns, the battles and flashpoints that constituted the Cold War, from the larger and better-known conflicts like Korea and Vietnam to the seemingly innocuous but none the less critical ones such as the Iran Crisis of Azerbaijan and Mahabad, 1945–47 or the little-known Czech Coup of 1947/48 that is now viewed as the definitive drawing of the Iron Curtain. However, not only does the series explore the clash of arms, it investigates the conflicting ideologies, the politics, the espionage and double-dealings that made up the backdrop to a world that held its breath for half a century.
