cold war n : a conflict characterized by the use of means short of sustained overt military action
--Webster's New American Dictionary, 1995
The Cold War lasted from the end of World War II until the fall of Soviet Union. On one side of the world, the United States led an alliance of nations in their determination to protect democracy and freedom throughout the world. On the other side, the Soviet Union spearheaded a quest to bring Communism to the world. During these 44 years, tensions between these two superpowers were high. The United States and the Soviet Union competed in every arena of the world, but never went to war with each other. Such a war was feared as the one that would end the world.
