Abstract:

The United States and the Soviet Union emerged from World War II at odds over their postwar goals. The escalation of these conflicting opinions led the world into a tense, bitter struggle that came to be known as the Cold War. While the world's superpowers never battled each other directly, their indirect involvement with each other in locales around the globe pushed the world to the brink of nuclear war. This vivid program utilizes archival footage and interviews with renowned experts to dramatize this uneasy period in American history, featuring in-depth coverage of the crisis in Berlin, Fidel Castro and Cuba and the eventual fall of the Soviet Union.
