Trouble Spots: a quiz

This is a quiz about late 20th century history. Apart from its two World Wars, this was a century in which two phenomena came together in a particularly notable way – I am referring to struggles for independence and/or regional dominance, together with effective mass media that brought these conflicts to public attention in a way that was simply not possible in previous ages.

In other words, we got to know far more about the world’s trouble spots than previous generations would have done. But just how much of this recent history – some of which may have been current news when you were younger – do you remember? Here’s your chance to find out!
