By utilising the latest research, readers will be given a complete picture of the way Britain fought the Cold War, moving the focus away from the w familiar crises of Suez and Cuba and onto the themes that underpinned the British war strategy. Intelligence, civil defence and nuclear diplomacy are all examined within the context of modern British history at a time of national decline. There is a growing interest in the contexts of the Cold War and this collection will establish itself as the leading volume on the UK's wartime strategy.
Dr Matthew Grant is based at the University of Sheffield. He has been researching aspects of the Cold War since 2000 and is a regular speaker on the subject at conferences around the UK.
