The bloody peace
As the uneasy peace of the Cold War hung over Europe for more than half a century, ferocious proxy wars raged across the postcolonial world, resulting in more than fourteen million dead. Star historian Paul Chamberlin re-frames the decades-long superpower struggle as one of the three great conflicts of the twentieth century.
The wars of the post-1945 era ravaged civilians across vast stretches of territory, from Korea and Vietnam to Afghanistan, Iraq and Lebanon. Chamberlin provides a ground-up understanding of this sweeping history as well as a moving portrait of human suffering.
The Cold War’s Killing Fields is the first global military history of this superpower conflict, and the first full accounting of its devastating impact.
