J BlackDuring the Eisenhower presidency, a conflict escalated that was unlike any previous war. The Cold War became a clash on cultural, ideological, and diplomatic fronts. Military historian Jeremy Black reconsiders the traditional Cold War narrative, focusing on President Eisenhower’s involvement. Black is the author of over 100 books on military and diplomatic history -- most recently, Geopolitics and the Quest for Dominance and The Cold War: A Military History.
