Berlin in the Cold War vividly describes the conflict between the two superpowers—the USA and the Soviet Union—as it played out in Berlin, the divided city that was frontier town, spy post, and battlefield. The book highlights the dramatic events that affected the entire world: the blockade, the airlift, the June 1953 uprising against the Communists, the construction of the Wall, stories of escape and espionage, and the fall of the Iron Curtain.

The book includes numerous pictures and a map of all the Cold War places in Berlin.
