The Cold War

The Build Of The Berlin Wall

The Cold Wars beggining

The Cold War was inspired by WW ll. The end of World War ll marked the beginning of the Cold War after the tensions with the Soviet Union. The Cold War lasted a lot. It lasted almost 50 years. It started in 1945. It ended in 1991. The Cold War also exists in video games like COD. Cod stands for Call Of Duty. I think we also learn about this when we are at college. The Cold War is a very important historical fact. The Cold War caused a lot of deaths. And I mean a lot of them. The end of WW ll caused the US to break their alliance against Hitler to break up. That caused a war. Below I posted an interesting video. It is specially made for you. It is for dummies. Just kidding. Although it is interesting.
