This book narrates Britain’s Cold War through its rich Cold War heritage. Taking a chronological approach, key events, technologies and social impacts are illustrated and explained through the many sites, collections and artefacts that are publicly accessible.


Peter Robinson takes readers on a journey of discovery, from the secret bunker at Kelvedon Hatch to the Nuclear Missile Storage Facility at RAF Barnham, where local people believed monkeys were being prepared for space travel, and beyond. Civil and Military defence, the CND movement and the Cold War in popular culture are also considered, and a list of fifty Cold War sites that are open to the public is also included.
