About The Book
A fresh, controversial, brilliantly written account of one of the epic dramas of the Cold War-and its lessons for today.”History at its best.” -Zbigniew Brzezinski”Gripping, well researched, and thought-provoking, with many lessons for today.” -Henry Kissinger”Captures the drama [with] the ‘You are there’ storytelling skills of a journalist and the analytical skills of the political scientist.” — General Brent ScowcroftIn June 1961, Nikita Khrushchev called it “the most dangerous place on earth.” He knew what he was talking about.Much has been written about the Cuban Missile Crisis a year later, but the Berlin Crisis of 1961 was more decisive in shaping the Cold War-and more perilous. For the first time in history, American and Soviet fighting men and tanks stood arrayed against each other, only yards apart. One mistake, one overzealous commander-and the trip wire would be sprung for a war that would go nuclear in a heartbeat. On one side was a young, untested U.S. president still reeling from the Bay of Pigs disaster. On the other, a Soviet premier hemmed in by the Chinese, the East Germans, and hard-liners in his own government. Neither really understood the other, both tried cynically to manipulate events. And so, week by week, the dangers grew.Based on a wealth of new documents and interviews, filled with fresh- sometimes startling-insights, written with immediacy and drama, Berlin 1961 is a masterly look at key events of the twentieth century, with powerful applications to these early years of the twenty- first.
