Summary
"Communists and capitalists were united in World War II to crush the fascists. But in 1945, with Hitler's Germany defeated, allies became adversaries. The world's two superpowers locked in a dramatic showdown over ideology, vision and freedom that would persist for five decades. Under the omnipresent threat of nuclear holocaust, the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States was the defining conflict of the 20th century."--Original container.
