Cold War Novels and Films
Would you like to dig in a little deeper? Sure, you could jump onto the internet and head down a few wormholes but why not pickup a paperback (or put on a film), fix yourself a drink and settle in!
Giving a copy of 15 Minute Cold War as a gift? Try pairing it up with a novel from the list below or a bottle from the drinks list!
Both The Guardian and the Council of Foreign Relations have wonderful lists of their top 10 books about the Cold War with a short synopsis.
For ease I've added links to a selection of these books on the Australian owned bookseller Booktopia for purchase. Many of these books have been adapted into films so I've also added a FILM link for the current streaming options.
