About

Overview

The Cold War introduced new military arsenal, weapons of mass destruction. The United States and the Soviet Union invested billions of dollars into the development of sophisticated and destructive weapons. Creating a dangerous military arsenal became another objective. After the Soviet Union detonated its first atomic bomb, the United States tested the first hydrogen bomb. This book examines how nuclear proliferation and the arms race influenced the trajectory of the Cold War.
