Summary
A part of the series America in the 20th Century. Although communists and capitalists united during World War II to crush fascism, Hitler's defeat set the stage for allies to become adversaries once more. This program frames the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union as the defining conflict of much of the 20th century. Viewers are shown how the world's two superpowers faced off in an uncompromising showdown over ideology and economics that would persist for five decades - not in a vacuum, but under the omnipresent threat of nuclear holocaust. Correlates to standards from the National Council for the Social Studies.
