Summary
East Germany built the Berlin Wall in the early 1960s, an eleven-foot-high barrier manned around the clock by guards who shot to kill. Over the next twenty-eight years, at least five thousand people attempted to break through. Here is a powerful, fascinating, and groundbreaking history of Checkpoint Charlie, the famous military gate on the border of East and West Berlin where the United States confronted the Soviet Union during the Cold War
