Cold War[edit]

The term first originated following the Second World War, to describe the geopolitical and ideological tensions between the then Soviet Union (USSR) and the USA. The two countries were involved in warfare, however due to the deterrent of their nuclear arsenals this was not an active war as no weapons were used. The war was fought mainly through proxies, and the nations used a lot of propaganda to broaden their respective spheres of political influence, each propagating its ideological views.
