The Cold War

Cold War (1947–1953)
Cold War (1953–1962)
Cold War (1962–1979)
Cold War (1979–1985)
Cold War (1985–1991)

Note: In order to leave the above cold war buttons available from  Wikipedia I seem unable to get rid of the blue purple background. So I will continue anyway.

Since there appears to be a new Cold War beginning with Russia around Syria and Iran and a hot war beginning in Syria as a Civil War and potentially Iran through Israel(that might last for years because of Iranian and Russian Aid to the Syrian Government and Russian Aid to the Iranian Government), I thought it might be useful for people to better understand what happened during the last Cold War which lasted from the end of World War II (1947) until 1991 when the Soviet Union Collapsed. So, by clicking on the above buttons you can get a better idea of what happened in Cold War from 1947 until 1991. I can tell you since I was born in 1948 that the Cold War was often a Terrifying experience that all of us in the Western World And Communist Block countries lived with every day for almost 50 years.

Here is a Civil Defense film produced for kids in public Schools in 1951
