Wall: The inside story of divided BerlinBy Peter Wyden
- Author: Peter Wyden
- Edition: 1St Edition
"[The author's] ... account of how the Wall came to be and what it has meant, not just to Berliners or Germans, but to people eveywhere ... It tells for the first time the inside story of what is by far the starkest and most enduring product of the Cold War: how the Wall was built, why the CIA was caught napping, what was-- and still is-- at stake for Washington and Moscow, how close the Berlin crisis brought the world to nuclear war, and why the Wall can't come down yet"--Jacket.
