3 OUT STANDING LEADERS OF COURAGE
THIS IS A GREAT BIO OF 3 OF THE MOST OUT STANDING LEADERS OF COURAGE OF THIS CENTURY WHO TOOK A BOLD STAND AGAIST COMMUNISM AND WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR BRINGING DOWN THE BERLIN WALL AND TAKING A BOLD STAND FOR OPPRESSED PEOPLE EVERY WERE WHO WERE BEING PERSECUTED BY THE FORCES OF THE IRON CURTIN. THIS IS THE FIRST BOOK OF ITS KIND TO TAKE AN INSIDE LOOK AT POPE JOHN PAUL 2, PRIME MINISTER THATCHER, AND PRESIDENT REAGAN AND WHAT THESE 3 GIANTS DID IN THE NAME OF PEACE AGAIST TYRANNY. WHAT I LOVED ABOUT THIS BOOK IS THE WRITER WORKED FOR PRIME MINISTER THATCHER SO HE WAS A WITNESS TO ALOT OF THESE HISTORIC EVENTS AND HE ALSO IS ABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME TO SHARE ALOT OF NEVER BEFORE SEEN DOCUMENTS AND RESEARCH MATERIALS THAT SHOW JUST HOW MUCH THESE 3 GREAT SAINTS DID IN THE NAME OF FREEDOM . THIS BOOK WOULD MAKE A GREAT GIFT FOR A FRIEND, FAMILY MEMBER, OR SOLDIER SERVING OVERSEAS. MOST OF ALL TO ME I THINK THIS BOOK IS ABOUT WHAT 3 GREAT FREEDOM FIGHTERS DID IN THE NAME OF LOVE TO STAND TALL . THIS IS A GREAT PUBLICATION AND A REAL PAGE TURNER.

John O'Sullivan has produced a must read for those who wish to understand the prime movers who brought about the end of the Cold War. Pope John Paul II's campaign for religious freedom and human rights in the Soviet Bloc and his backing of solidarity in Poland undermined communism's grip; Margaret Thatcher's support of a powerful NATO counterforce to the Soviet Union's military presence in Europe, together with her resolute support of Ronald Reagan's vision of a nuclear-free world and the means to achieve it, all combined to convince Mikhail Gorbachev that the Soviet Union was at the end of its tether. In the last decade of the Cold War the stars were truly aligned.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
