My son and are looking at the cover art for twilight struggle. He says "is it the famous location where Reagan gave the "Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall speech".
What does the cover art represent?
We also noticed the outline of the countries in the sky, which are pretty cool

In the background is the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, which is a famous landmark and was the background for Reagan's famous speech.



The foreground is a spy walking between a fence with barbed wire, sort of a stylized version of the Berlin Wall, which at some points had inner and outer barriers with a no man's land in between. The Wall near the Gate did not really look like that. I think it's more to symbolize the iron curtain dividing east and west in the Cold War.

If there were a poster sized version of the cover available, I'd put it on my wall.
