Wars between rival nations are usually fought on the battlefield. However, from the end of World War II until the early 1990s, the United States and the Soviet Union were engaged in a Cold War in which neither side ever directly attacked the other. Readers will learn about the Cold War’s origins and find out how the rival nations competed with each other. They will also learn about the conflict’s effects on people around the world, its lasting impact, and more.
