What was the Cold War?Between 1946 – 1990, from the ruins of war, two superpowers rose. The United States and the Soviet Union dominate the world.
Fearful and suspicious they spy on one another.
Each builds up enough nuclear weapons to kill everyone.
Avoiding head-on conflict, they shadow-box in wars around the world.
Then, with little warning the Soviet Union's empire collapses. — The Imperial War Museum, Manchester, UK (2018)
