The Cold War, which is said to have lasted from the end of World War II to the dismantling of the Soviet Union in 1991. Intrinsically, this Cold War was a tense political period between the Democratic and Communist blocs, the East and the West, and most importantly, the United States and the Soviet Union. Although this period has now come to an end, many disputes have been raised concerning the initial conference at Yalta near the end of the Second World War, and the actual causes of the Cold War tensions involving Communist and American aggression.
The “Cold War” was a unique time period were paranoia ran high and the world was at a stalemate as it watch the competition between the two world superpowers,(U.S. and the U.S.S.R.).
The cold war was the biggest event in the modern history of America. The cold war lasted for almost half a century and sparked most of the events that defined our country as a whole. Although it started as two superpowers in a competition for power, it ended with America gaining a great all.
The Cold War was an interesting time period for the world, seeing that it was after one of the biggest and most memorable wars ever. Yet, it was a different type of war. One that no one had ever seen before, it was a war without fighting (kind of). It was a war fought in between the USSR and the United States. Each side also included their allies: the US had NATO and the USSR had the Warsaw pact. The timeframe of this war was from 1947 to 1991.

Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union began with mutual distrust in World War II, intense rivalry, and conflicting ideologies. Cold War was fought with four major weapons. The weapons were propaganda, economic and military aid to devastated nations after World War II, arms race, and the alliances. Propagandas were used for containment and to raise the people’s morale and patriotism. Economic aid of the devastated nations was also used as a method of containment, as it prevented the desperate nations from falling under communism. Arms race was one way of representing the nation’s military pride and the ability to retaliate when attacked, although the arms were not developed to dominate world power. Finally, alliances were created and its scale was compared to verify the superior side of the Cold War.
Many think the cold war was an actual war fought with guns and bloodshed. Those who think that are wrong; most of the war was all verbal threats. The countries involved were scared of each other; reason being because their opponents were threatening them about chemical warfare. The main cause of the cold war are from chaotic clashes of two radical ideological beliefs; Communism and Capitalism.
World War One was greatly influenced by many factors, and in many ways. National interest ignited the mistrust and insecurities within nations, which in turn led to the creation of strong alliances and immense military forces. The growing suspicion Britain had of Germany only heightened the wariness and uncertainty of nations. The means, by which individual nations dealt with the issues within themselves, and outside of their boundaries, in the years preceding World War One, were irrational and improperly thought through. Nations fell into a strong ultra nationalistic point of view, and acted in a way which expressed interest in themselves only.
The Cold War is an amazing story of competition between political and economic ideologies, a competition that has threatened the world with nuclear war and annihilation. The countries are threatening each other with nuclear weapons and every country keeps building up in nuclear weapons. The buildup of nuclear weapons and scared the whole world, no one was safe. The Cold War began in Europe after World War II. The Soviet Union won control of Eastern Europe and controlled almost of Germany and almost half of Germany’s capital, Berlin. The United States, Britain, and France controlled western Germany and West Berlin. The Soviet Union blocked any point of entry that led to West Berlin, so no one can
The Cold War was a nonviolent political conflict between the United States and the Soviet Union that arose after World at War II. They both shared a common enemy at the time; Germany and although The Soviet Union and United States won the war, competition and conflict between the two had led to the Cold War lasting from 1945 to 1990. The Soviet Union had used its political beliefs to try and dominate Eastern Europe in fact they even set up communist governments in other countries and caused even more tension in the Cold War.
The Cold War was a period of political hostility that occurred between the Soviet countries and the United States from 1945 to 1990. Many factors contributed to making the conflict more extreme. Spy rings, nuclear weapons, and the fear of Communist infiltration are three factors that intensified the Cold War. Although the hostility did not result in a physical war, it received much attention.
After the end of World War II, the Soviet Union and United States had become the strongest nations in the world. Although these two countries began as allies, their differing ideas about government and economics caused the Cold War. The Soviet Union, which is a communist country, had a government that held all the power over its people. The United States was a capitalist country, which meant the people had more power over their lives and property. These competing ideologies about the world after the war kept the US president Harry Truman and Soviet leader Joseph Stalin from staying at peace. The Cold War started in Europe after the Soviet Union gained control of Eastern Europe. Stalin wanted to prevent Germany from remilitarizing and to pay huge
