Summary
The US bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki ended World War II but also gave birth to the Cold War, which would be marked by the fragile relationship of two superpowers with opposing ideologies: the United States and the Soviet Union. For 45 years, these two powers would vie for supremacy in world politics and the arms race that held the potential for an apocalyptic confrontation and the end of the human race. Understanding the Cold War is essential to our understanding of the second half of the 20th century and beyond
