From 1945 to 1991 the world was gripped and divided by the Cold War, a struggle for hegemony between Western capitalist democracy and Soviet communism. For almost five decades, each strived to outsmart, outdo and outlast the other. The effects of the Cold War rippled and reverberated around the world, changing the lives of millions. The Cold War played a pivotal role in shaping and defining the modern world.

The Cold War for iPhone contains 41 chapters, written especially for this app by Alpha History authors and qualified historians (no public domain or Wikipedia content). Each chapter contains an audio reading of the text, so you can read along or use Cold War for iPhone as an audiobook. Chapters also feature great images and cartoons, hand-picked for their historical value. There's also a useful collection of support material, including embedded videos, a timeline, a comprehensive glossary, and a 'strange but true' trivia section. And if that's not enough, you can test your Cold War knowledge with a multiple-choice quiz!
