The Berlin WallBook - 2011
A Place in History looks at some of the most famous and iconic sites in modern history. The books in this series also explore the wider history of the particular era of event with which each site is linked, be it World War II, the Cold War, the Holocaust, or the War on Terror. The Berlin Wall describes the history of the notorious barrier that divided East and West Berlin for 28 years-why it was built and what life was like in the divided city. The book places the story of the wall in the wider context of the Cold War, explaining how Berlin came to be on the front line of an epic confrontation between the communist East and capitalist West.
