The Tunnels: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Kill by Greg Mitchell looks at politics, the media, and history during the Cold War Era. This book is really dense. You have to fully concentrate on it when you are reading it. That said, it is detailed and interesting. The details do not overwhelm, and they are all important to the story.
I did not know much
about this part of the Cold War, and I learned a lot by reading this
book. It is not light reading, nor is it relaxing, but it is a good
read. I received a free copy from the publisher.
