Summary
  • One morning in 1961, the residents of East Berlin found themselves cut off from family, friends and jobs in the West by a tangle of barbed wire that ruthlessly cut a city of four million in two. Within days the barbed wire became a 103-mile-long wall guarded by three hundred watchtowers. A physical manifestation of the Cold War that would stand for nearly thirty years, the Berlin Wall was the fault line between East and West on which rested the fate of all humanity. Historian Taylor weaves together official history, archival materials and personal accounts to tell the complete story of the Wall's rise and fall, from the postwar political tensions that created a divided Berlin to the internal and external pressures that led to the Wall's demise. He also explores the geopolitical ramifications, as well as the impact the Wall had on ordinary lives, still felt today.--From publisher description
  • A history of the 103-mile wall between East and West Germany describes its representation of the struggle between Soviet communism and American capitalism, the internal and external pressures that led to its dismantling, and the wall's geopolitical ramifications
