Back in the 90's I believe, someone wrote a book dedicated to showing how the alliance of Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and Pope John Paul II was responsible for bringing down the Soviet Union/Warsaw Pact. Does anyone know the title of this book and its author? Thank you.

I thought of the book "The Final Revolution - The Resistance Church and the Collapse of Communism" by George Weigel. But there is no mention of Margaret Thatcher. Ronald Reagan is mentioned several times, though.

How about

THE PRESIDENT, THE POPE AND THE PRIME MINISTER:THREE WHO CHANGED THE WORLD/John O'Sullivan


Could be?

That seems like a very odd oversight. Thatcher was instrumental in the 'revolution,' just as much as Reagan.

I remember a book I liked reading thirty years ago. I can't remember what it was about. But I remember it had a blue cover. I bet GKC can guess what it was.....












Just kidding. But he is awesome at coming up with book titles.

The blue cover recalled it to my memory.
