• A fascinating guide to Berlin, the ultimate symbol of the Cold War for more than four decades

Following the end of World War II, Berlin became a bone of contention between the former allies of USA, Great Britain, France and the Soviet Union. The construction of the Berlin Wall before the whole world in August 1961 cemented the division of the city, which had already begun with its division into four sectors in 1945, and which would only end with German reunification in 1990. For more than four decades Berlin was the ultimate symbol of the Cold War.

Oliver Boyn shows where the political decision makers operated and where spies were exchanged, where the Wall ran and where the centres of propaganda were, where monuments
were built and which memorials commemorate that period.

Folding maps and more than 160 photographs help those in search of traces of this time.
