Margaret Thatcher prided herself on her reputation as the Iron Lady, a nickname given to her by the Red Army newspaper. And throughout her political career, her role as a Cold War Warrior, rallying the West in a crusade against international Communism, played a central part in her public image.
In this enlightening and amusing talk, television presenter and author Dominic Sandbrook explores how the Cold War shaped Mrs Thatcher’s premiership.
