In his book Facing the Bear, Trevor Royle paints a fascinating portrait of Scotland’s key role in the alliance's defence strategy during this extraordinary period of history, examining not just the wider military and political contexts, but also showing how the defence industry brought huge economic benefits and how anti-nuclear sentiments underpinned much of the left's thinking in Scotland.. Iain MacGregor’s Checkpoint Charlie is a powerful, fascinating, and ground-breaking history of Checkpoint Charlie, the legendary and most important military gate on the border of East and West Berlin where the United States and her allies confronted the USSR during the Cold War.
