  • The Cold War By Reggie Grasser
  • After World War 2, America and the Soviet Union began to deteriorate, which was the start of the Cold War.  This tension created was worsened when the Marshall Plan was created, which was meant to stem the spread of Communism, 
  • The Cold War wasn't really a war though, but just another name for the half a century that the United States and Soviet Union was on the brink of war.  It was more of  a race between the States and Soviet Union to be better and first in all categories including nuclear and military weaponry.  
  • Tension grew even larger when the United States decided to join NATO(North Atlantic Treaty Organization), which is an alliance with Canada, Great Britain, France, Portugal, Norway, Belgium, Iceland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and Italy.  The Soviet Union responded years later by forming their own version titled the Warsaw Pact including its Eastern allies.
  • NATO
  • Warsaw Pact
  • Everything during the arms race escalated once the Soviet Union detonated their first Atomic Bomb successfully.  This, along with the alliance the Soviets formed with the People’s Republic of China in 1950, helped strike fear in the U.S about the possibility of the domino effect
  • It wasn't until the late 80's, 40 years after the beginning of the Cold War, where we saw the beginning of the end of the Cold War, when the U.S and Soviet Union agreed to ramp back the their nuclear arms race.  But it wasn't until the December 31, 1991 where we got the end of the Cold War after the Soviet Union disbanded or dissolved.
