Event Details

An exhilarating high-stakes tale of grit, skulduggery and raw power.  From the high politics of Yalta to the desperate scramble to break the Soviet stranglehold of Berlin with the greatest aerial operation in history, Giles Milton tells the epic story of the first battle of the Cold War between 1945 and 1949. He explores how it shaped the modern world and set the path toward the ultimate Cold War frontier – the Berlin Wall – ‘brilliantly re-capturing  the febrile atmosphere of Berlin in the first four years after the Second World War’. (Andrew Roberts)

This is a pre-recorded event which will be available from 9am on 25 September to 9pm on 31 January 2022.
