Afternoon with the Author: Eamon Earls presents "Cold War New England"

Cold War New England book cover

Saturday, October 27 at 2:00 -- Join author and historian Eamon Earls as he discusses his book "Cold War New England: The Global Conflict at Home," a fascinating history of the Cold War as seen through the lens of New England.  

Missiles in Vermont? Communists in New Hampshire? The largest air base in the world in Maine? Spy ships in Long Island Sound? It might seem absurd, but 25 years after the end of the Cold War, it’s time to take a look at New England when our region was on the front lines of a global conflict. So recent and yet so distant, this last great conflict brought about an already very alien world of mega-bases, nuclear arsenals, missile silos, and high-tech development that helped the US to fight...and ultimately triumph while keeping the Cold War from getting hot.
