The Cold War Showdown That Shaped the Modern World 

Checkmate in Berlin tells this exhilarating, high-stakes tale of grit, skulduggery and raw power. From the high politics of Yalta to the desperate scramble to break the Soviet stranglehold of Berlin with the greatest aerial operation in history, this is the epic story of the first battle of the Cold War and how it shaped the modern world.

Frank is interviewed by Harry Pearson.
