The end of World War Two saw an intense and deeply personal struggle for mastery of the Western world amidst the ruins of Berlin. In this thrilling account, bestselling historian Giles Milton recounts epic four-year drama that would culminate in The Berlin Airlift. It is the stor...y of the ultimate game of roulette amongst the enigmatic larger-than-life personalities from rival powers: Britain, the United States, France and the Soviet Union. Drawing on previously unknown oral and written testimonies, Checkmate in Berlin tells - as never before - a story of flawed individuals each determined to win and the first battle of the Cold War.
