Description - The Cold War by David Miller

From 1949 to 1991, the world was overshadowed by the Cold War, and when it ended the Warsaw Pact was wound up and the vast military forces which had flourished for over 40 years were disbanded. As with all wars, however, it was only then that the realities of what had been involved began to emerge. In this work, the author reveals the vast scope of the military resources involved, as well as how threat nearly became a terrible reality. He also show that while the menace of nuclear was was predominant, it was actually little understood even by the experts. The book examines each military area in turn, covering the formation of the two great alliances, and the strategies and major weapons in the rival navies, armies and air forces.
