After the Second World War, the former allies suffered from a destroyed global economy and a traumatized population. Soviet influence spread insidiously from one nation to another, and the Atlantic powers - the Americans, the British and a small group of allies - were caught on the wrong foot by coups, collapsing armies and civil wars that broke out on all. sides. The Cold War had begun in earnest.

In The Atlantic and its Enemies , award-winning historian Norman Stone traces the years between World War II and the collapse of the Iron Curtain. It vividly demonstrates that for every Atlantic success there seemed to be a dozen Communist or Third World triumphs.

An elegant and revolutionary story, The Atlantic and its enemies is a memorial to the immense suffering and conflict of the 20th century and an illuminating investigation into how the `Atlantic has finally triumphed over its enemies.
