THE COLD WAR A New History

by | Read by Jay Gregory, Alan Sklar

History • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

If only history were taught with such drama! Historian John Lewis Gaddis explains the complicated story of a half-century in less than 10 hours. Narrators Jay Gregory and Alan Sklar also engage. While Gregory handles the bulk of the narration with his authoritative, measured tones, Sklar joins in to lend voice to the quotes from famous leaders such as Khrushchev, Reagan, and Chairman Mao. Sklar's reflections set the tone for the sheer stupidity of some leaders, the tactical genius of others, and, more often than not, odd twists of fate. Gaddis shows us the world through different eyes--Russian eyes, Chinese eyes, French eyes--in a humbling history lesson, impossible to forget.
