Great Footage and narration
13 July 2000 | by churchill65See all my reviews

"Cold War" by CNN is a great set. It gives you all the details from certain time periods during the cold war. It shows some footage of events that I didn't see anywhere else. From the Russian Revolution to the Potsdam Conference- From Reagan's Star Wars to the collapse of The Soviet Union- "Cold War" tells it all.
