The Cold War 1941-1995 - Introduction


A Level


11m 0s

What are the main themes of the period? Can there be a war with no fighting? Why did the world’s greatest superpowers spend 50 years opposing each other without resorting to World War III? Had war simply become too dangerous in the era of nuclear weapons? How close did the world come to nuclear Armageddon? The origins of the Cold War, how it was fought and ultimately how it ended- did the West ‘win ‘ the Cold War?
