The lively story of the race to seize Berlin in the aftermath of World War II.

Berlin's fate was sealed at the 1945 Yalta Conference: the city, along with the rest of Germany, was to be carved up among the victors - the United States, Britain, France, and the Soviet Union. But once the four powers were no longer united by the common purpose of defeating Germany, they wasted little time reverting to their prewar hostility toward - and suspicion of - one another. Checkmate in Berlin recounts the first battle of the Cold War as we've never before seen it. It's a story of unprecedented human drama that had a profound, and often underestimated, impact on the modern world - one that's still felt today.
