Flashpoint Trieste, The First Battle of the Cold War

This is one of those exciting history books that reads like a novel. Churchill made an inspired choice in deciding to support Tito and his Communist Resistance Army. However, it was a relationship that was not just unlikely, but one with potential fault lines. – Much Recommended.
