Informative, Concise, Accurate
A mass of detail, while maintaining readability. I purchased this book to refresh my view of the events that took place in the Cold War with reference to Berlin. This book effectively and intriguingly presented Berlin's history of the cold war. It is well organized. Any person who wishes to use this book to brush up on the matter will encounter not only accuracy but also a surprisingly pleasant read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Lots of info in a slender volume
The book is short, but the story is rich. Flemming assembles a lot of factual matter without being tiresome, and accompanies it with fascinating and sometimes painful pictures. Touches of dry wit help one through complex episodes of history. There are also scary moments that many may have forgotten, when a nuclear war seemed to be next door.Was this review helpful?
