The Cold War


The Cold War was a conflict unlike any other. The main protagonists did not launch missiles or drop bombs on each other, yet the whole world sat in fear of the day when a real war may break out. The Cold War drove the foreign policy, defense budgets, culture and priorities of most nations in the world. The main foes in this cold war were the United States and the Soviet Union. Each superpower had allies in this conflict. Those nations siding with the United States were often referred to as "The West," while the Soviet Union and its allies were often called "The East."


Major Events of the Cold War

The Greek Civil War (1946-1949)--First real "hot war" of the East-West conflict.

Berlin Blockade/Berlin Airlift (1948-1949)

Communists take over control of China (1949)

The Korean War (1950-1953)
