THE COLD WAR 

This series will draw on exciting new scholarship and recently released archival material to take a fresh look at the epic conflict that dominated the second half of the 20th century. Our narrative will begin where The War, our 7- part series on World War II ended: as the greatest cataclysm in human history is coming to a close, and the nuclear age is dawning. The grand alliance that defeated fascism almost immediately comes apart; wartime allies of convenience become arch enemies; and for the next four decades, the world’s two great superpowers circle each other in a tense atmosphere of suspicion, distrust, and misunderstanding, each seeking strategic advantage while simultaneously trying to avoid nuclear Armageddon. The series will end with the collapse of the Soviet Union along with commentaries and reflections on the legacy and lessons of the Cold War.
