Cold War

Was the Cold War really a war? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby introduce you to the politics behind this big-time struggle between the United States and the Soviet Union. Discover why communism was such a major force in starting the Cold War, and why the advent of nuclear weapons also played a large role. You’ll also find out how the Cold War led to a major U.S. political policy called containment; the building of the Berlin Wall in Germany; and the so-called “space race,” which greatly advanced human presence in outer space. Plus, you’ll find out about some real wars that the United States battled as part of the Cold War, and about the end of the Cold War itself!
