We have a saying in the UK: ‘History is written by the winners’.
That is true of what children are taught in school.
But in the era of the internet, ‘true history’ can be written by the survivors.
It is important that these stories gain traction in the West. Many, many people need to understand that ‘winning the Cold War’ was not about egos grandstanding, it was about leaving the ordinary people of the ‘losers’ to fend for themselves in extraordinarily challenging conditions.
