HISTORY
Asked by Nikola

What hapened during the cold war basically how it developed?

Both American and the Soviet Union (Russia and 14 other countries) won the Second World War, even though they weren’t directly allied to each other. This lead to them diving Berlin, and therefore Germany, so they could both own it. So the Berlin Wall was built and for years there were two completely different regiments in Germany due to this. Since both Americans and soviets won the war though, both nations kept preparing for the eventuality the the other one would attach them and attempt to be the last standing winner of the war. This lead to what we call ‘the cold war’. There was no actual fighting happening, just preparations for such fight. So the American would spy and so would what we call now ‘Russians’. Russians would come up with different nuclear bombs, so the Americans came up with bigger ones, just in case. Both of them started racing each other on every single front, who could get to the moon, who had bigger and better weapons. Everything, just in case. The Cold War proves how fear can fuel humans, and lead them to be in constant alert, constantly wanting more and bigger, just in case.
