Cold War - In the late 1940s, peace was threatened by the Cold War, which is the time period between World War II and the early 1990s. This was due to the political conflict between the capitalist countries of the West (USA and Western Europe) and the communist countries of the East (Soviet Union and the Eastern Europe).
There was no actual fighting, but both sides had large military forces ready for war and threatened each other with nuclear weapons. They also tried to find out each other’s secrets using espionage.
