The Cold War for Kids

The west was led by the United States and Eastern Europe was led by the Soviet Union. These two countries became known as superpowers. Although the two superpowers never officially declared war on each other, they fought indirectly in proxy wars, the arms race, and the space race. Time Period (1945 - 1991) The Cold War began not too long after World War II ended in 1945. The Cold War came to an end with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. Proxy Wars The Cold War was often fought between the superpowers of the United States and the Soviet Union in something called a proxy war. Arms Race and Space Race The United States and the Soviet Union also tried to fight the Cold War by demonstrating their power and technology.

The Cuban Missile Crisis. The Cuban Missile Crisis was one of the few times that the ‘rules’ of the Cold Warwere nearly forgotten.

The Cuban Missile Crisis

Berlin, Korea, Hungary and Suez – the ‘rules’ had been followed. But in Cuba this broke down and the Cuban Missile Crisis was the only time when ‘hot war’ could have broken out. In the 1950’s Cuba was lead by a right-wing dictator called Fulgencio Batista. He dealt with opponents with extreme harshness and while a few prospered under his regime, many Cubans were very poor. He was not tolerant of communists and received the support of the Americans.

There is no monopoly on common sense On either side of the political fence We share the same biology Regardless of ideology Believe me when I say to you I hope the Russians love their children too Cette chanson, écrite en 1985, est un point de vue occidental de la fin de la guerre froide. Lorsque la chanson sort, elle est déjà « historique » puisque les dirigeants dont il est question ont été remplacés. NB : Oppenheimer est le physicien qui a inventé la bombe atomique.
