Stretching from the end of World War II to 1989, the Cold War between the Western powers and the Communist bloc shaped national alliances around the world. Giving first-hand views of various aspects of the Cold War, Primary Sources provides key complete and excerpted documents of the war, such as Winston Churchill's "Iron Curtain" speech and correspondence between John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
