With the end of the Second World War, a new world was born. The Iron Curtain descended, and from Europe to India boundaries were redrawn. Deploying a vast array of archival material and personal testimonies, this masterly history takes the reader from Washington to Moscow, from Delhi to Shanghai, to show how the lives of generations across the globe were shaped by the decisions made in the aftermath of war - and how the consequences of those decisions affect us today.
