Event Details


More than any other conflict, the Cold War was fought on the battlefield of the human mind. 30 years since the Soviet Union’s collapse its legacy still endures – and with war in Ukraine is more resonant than ever. We welcome leading historian Martin Sixsmith who witnessed the end of the Cold War reporting first-hand for the BBC from Moscow during the Gorbachev and Yeltsin years. Using a vast array of untapped archives and unseen sources he vividly recreates the tension and paranoia of the Cold War on both sides of the Iron Curtain and explores the Cold War’s powerful legacy in 2023.
