The term Cold War is often used to describe the whole post-Second World War era from 1945-1990 to define the situation which was neither war nor peace. It was not a hot war with shooting, although occasionally it came to that. But it was a cold war of political operations, of espionage, of various operations mainly between the United States and the Soviet Union.
In fact, the two opposing ideologies of the Cold War were already in place in 1918. But most people in the West had no idea that it had started. While Lenin was establishing Bolshevism with its doctrine of world revolution in Russia, President Wilson's 14 Points presented a rival global programme of self-determination, free trade and collective security through the League of Nations. Yet it was to take the defeat of Nazi Germany to create the political context for the Cold War.
The cold war began when the us and the ussr had rising tension after the ending of wwII. At this point the ussr had decided to attack the u.s and they did. But they were not ready for what the u.s had waiting for them. In 1947 is when the war actually started and went on for 50 years. So roughly 1987 to like 1990 is when the war ended
The cold war started in 1945 and lasted until 1990
The cold war started in 1945 and ended on 1969
It started right after WW2 and lasted until the fall of the Soviet Union...
The cold war was established by solid snake from metal gear solid and it ended when the xbox 360 came out
Okay so like, when did the cold war start because all of you are giving different answers. It's so not cool. People have to use this information for school, and your answers are not WORKING for me.
The cold war began in 1945, it was called a cold war because nothing happened.
The cold war happened because Russia had been fighting with the other allies for a long time,
they helped win the war, and USA didn't tell Russia of the atomic bomb but told England & France. Then Russia felt betrayed they had lost soldier's in the war to, and felt that the USA was being unfair. As, The Soviet Union was attacked by Germany, without warning or provocation, in 1941. In the next four years at least 20,000,000 Soviets were killed. The great majority of German casualties occurred on the Russian Front.Russia thought that because most German causalities happened on the Soviets Union front that they would be informed.
Also, Russia started to think that the allies were going to turn on the soviet union as Stalin & Truman disliked each other. There was other reason's too of course.But, when America released the atomic bomb on Japan, Russia got idea's they were planning to do the same. So Russia hired spies to get the atom bomb's plan so they could make one. They did make one eventually, but again the reason for the cold war being the cold war. Was that both sides were two scared to use there bomb incase they got bombed in return.
I believe it started in 1945
It began in 1945 and ended in 1990
The cold war effectively began when the two major super powers, the US and USSR, faced one another following the end of the second World War and came to see one another as rivals and enemies.
It began in 1947 with two super powers one was the US the other the USSR with the of chance of having the space race and etc...
It began between the United states and The USSR. It was called the cold war because people were very cold to eachother in the midevil years, people never wanted peace
The cold war started in the year 1947 and continued till 1989 or December 1991. However many people still differ about the start and the end of the war. Some consider the initial cause of the war to be the rising tension between the Soviet Union and the United States that worsened in between 1945 and 1947. It finally ended with the fall of the Soviet Union on the 25th of December in the year 1991.
It got termed as Cold War because there weren't any instances of open hostility between the Soviet Union and the United States. The war was instead manifested in the form of nuclear weapons, military alliances, proxy wars, espionage and propaganda among other things. Some of the most important instances in the cold war were the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Berlin Blockade, and the other wars such as the Koran war, the Vietnam War and the Soviet-Afghan War.
It started in 1947 and ended in 1980. The cold war was known as the war of words. It wasn't really a war it was what people called it. But anyways it was close to 50 years long. There was talk about someone bombing another country and who ever built there bomb first would bomb the other place. The US got there bomb made first 2 weeks before japan and we bombed japan and killed many people!:)
It began in 1948 when the soviet union vetoed a proposition to cease the creation of nuclear weapons and to dismantle the ones already created. August 29 1949 the Soviets successfully tested their nuclear capabilities. The end of the COLD WAR is debatable. The visual image is the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. The dissolving of the Soviet Union on the 26 Dec 1991 trully ended the Cold War.
