The Cold War

The wartime alliance between the United States and the Soviet Union broke down soon after the defeat of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. World politics for the next half century was defined by the tense—but increasingly stable—opposition between the two nuclear superpowers.

Why was the Cold War fought? What were its defining moments? Why did it never escalate into a hot, global war, despite close calls over Berlin and Cuba? How were other countries drawn into the vortex of superpower conflict? What are the Cold War’s enduring legacies today?
