On the Edge £31.99

During the post-war era, the Soviet Union emerged as America’s main threat, overpowering the U.S. Army and Navy. With fears of a Soviet invasion of Western Europe, the U.S. devised war plans centred on massive nuclear retaliation.

Plans like Pincher and Broiler outlined strategies of atomic bombing to weaken the Soviet Union and possibly induce surrender. However, due to limited atomic stockpiles and the Strategic Air Command's reliance on B-29s, these plans remained theoretical. Soviet awareness of American weaknesses led to tensions, culminating in the Berlin blockade of 1948.

Cees Steijger delves into the circumstances that almost led to a third world war, highlighting the precariousness of the Cold War era.

"All Our Loving – A People's History of The Beatles" transports readers to 1950s Liverpool, following John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr on their path to fame.
