Many of the events of the Cold War were largely unknown to the general population. Cold War Conversations has ensured that the stories can now be told and be an important historical source for future researchers into what, hopefully, will remain a unique period of time.

These interviews are utterly fascinating into life during the Cold War. I’m guessing for anyone aged under 40, they probably have no idea about what life was like at that time, so it’s great these stories bring the big events and facts to life from a human perspective rather than history book...Read full review »
