The Cold War
The cold war was a non military conflict between the two "super powers": The USA and the USSR after the World War Two. It was from 1945 to 1990, the reason of the end was the dissolution of the USSR. Both of the countries wanted to be the most powerful country in producing ato, weapons. It was an armament race (Wettrüsten). At the Beginning of the 2. World War they were partners but after the end of the 2. World War they became enemies because of the fact, that the USA was kapitalism (kapitalistisch) and the USSR was kommunistique(keine Ahnung ob das so geschrieben wird ^^) .
They didn't used the atom bomb because they wanted to protect themself and their counry. Thex supported (anstiften?) little countries (Afghanistan, Corea and Vietnam) to have wars, for example, the Vietnamwar.
