    It was the greatest hockey series ever played-and it changed the game forever Cold War evokes as never before those legendary 27 days in September 1972: a time when hockey's two worlds collided, as the perennial world champions from the Soviet Union finally tested themselves against the top professional stars of the National Hockey League. Decided only in the dying seconds of the final game in Moscow, the series captivated fans and non-fans alike with its explosive upsets and unrelenting suspense. Cold War weaves together rich period detail, illuminating anecdote and thrilling hockey action with eyewitness accounts from Paul Henderson, Vladislav Tretiak, Ken Dryden, Yvan Cournoyer, Harry Sinden and many other greats to recreate the series: its heroes and goats, its characters and prima donnas, its moments of poignancy, bravery, hilarity and shame. This book is also about a nation's magnificent obsession.Combining passion and insight with a coolly objective eye, author Roy MacSkimming shows how Canadians' identification with their hockey roots transformed eight friendly matches into a bitter, life-or-death struggle between the game's superpowers-and into a symbolic confrontation between hostile political systems. On the eve of the series' anniversary, Cold War artfully documents one of the great mythic dramas in the history of sport.
