About

Overview

It was a time of global tensions and brinksmanship, bomb shelters and witch hunts, where local conflicts in Korea, Cuba, Indochina, and Africa soon became tests of wills between the forces of democracy and the forces of communism. It was the Cold War, and for nearly 50 years, it held the world in its grip.
