Quotes

Sir Frank Roberts: Churchill and Roosevelt got this idea that if you treated Stalin the right way... I think the phrase was "If you treat Uncle Joe like a member of our club, then perhaps one day he will behave like a member of our club."

This is THE documentary on The Cold War
29 November 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Over time, many documentaries on The Cold War have been made. There are so many things that can go wrong, especially when you take on such a huge and important subject as The Cold War. Impressively enough, nothing fails. This documentary is exciting from the first chapter to the last chapter. It is detailed, fairly balanced and exciting. While obviously American, it does not feel overly biased. It is well-organized and you do not feel that you are finishing the documentary with important questions left unanswered or significant events left out. It explains in detail, without becoming slow-paced.

If you want a comprehensive presentation of The Cold War, this is THE documentary to get, no matter if you are a newcomer or intermediate on Cold War history. Very recommended.
