title ”50 Years with the Cold War”. Now all the lectures are edited to

1999. It was the 3rd

The themes of the essays

the Cold War in general, to
why it ended; from Norway
as an intelligence ally to the
U2 spy-plane and satellites;
from NATO’s nuclear
strategy in the Northern
Areas to the making of the Norwegian Air Force.
