The Cold War
What was the Cold War?
When was it?
It started some time in 1947, and continued on until around 1990, when the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (the USSR) was dissolved.
How did it start? (Y’know, I’m beginning to think that many of the last few things we've done in English have been leading up to this point).
It was clearly related to when Joseph Stalin became leader of the Soviet Union. Things got bad under him, and they didn't look good until recent times. So when the Berlin Blockade happened, it lead to disagreements and tensions between the Soviet Union and the United Nations. And then when it all went down, things exploded, literally!
What were they ‘fighting’ over?
I don’t think even ‘they’ knew what they were fighting over, really.
What effect did it have in the populations of the US and USSR (and the rest of the world)?
How and why did the USSR end?
