In the wake of World War II, with Britain’s empire collapsing and Stalin’s on the rise, U.S. officials under new secretary of state George C. Marshall set out to reconstruct western Europe as a bulwark against communist authoritarianism. Their massive, costly, and ambitious undertaking would remake the face of the Continent.
This thrilling account brings to life the key episodes in the collapse of postwar U.S.-Soviet relations—the Prague coup, the Berlin blockade, and the division of Germany—and fully reveals Stalin’s determination to crush the Marshall Plan and undermine American power in Europe.
The birth of the Cold War, and the impact of the Marshall Plan on modern Europe, comes to brilliant new life in this watershed history.
