    The Overview of The Cold War
    The Cold War was a long-lasting struggle, which was mainly between the United States of America and The U.S.S.R, The Union of Soviet Socialist Rebupublics. The Soviets had a large amount of "Satellite States", which are countries that are being influenced or totally controlled by another country, that were on there side of the war and supported them. The United States had the help of Great Britain and France along with many other anti-communist nations. Most historians say that the Cold War began immediately following the end of World War II while some debate it was prior to this. The Soviets, who were Socialists, believed that they were basically "surrounded" by capitalist countries like the United States and the other Western Powers. The Soviets did not like the fact they were "surrounded" so they decided to do something about, although in the end their plan did not work out as well as they thought it would.

    The Cuban Missile Crisis {http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/0e/U2_Image_of_Cuban_Missile_Crisis.jpg} This U-2 reconnaissance photo showed concrete evidence of missile assembly in Cuba. Shown here are missile transporters and missile-ready tents where fueling and maintenance took place.In 1962 the Soviets and Cuba made an agreement and they secretly began to build nuclear missiles and nuclear missile bases in Cuba.The reason for doing so was because from Cuba all the missiles could reach most of the continental United States but if they were to put them in Russia the missiles would not be able to destroy as much land. Many historians think that it was the United States who provoked this action because in 1958 the U.S. deployed nuclear warheads in Turkey and the surrounding areas where they could hit Moscow, which is the capital of Russia. In October 1962 a U.S. U2 plane captured photos that provided proof that the Russians were in fact deploying nuclear missiles in Cuba. Whenever these missiles were discovered the U.S. had to figure out the best way to go about getting rid of these missiles. Many politicians voted for a full scale invasion while others recommended just to blockade Cuba. President Kennedy met with Andrei Gromyko from Russia, who said that the missiles were only there for defensive purposes and not or the offensive. The U.S. refused to believe this so they ordered the military to blockade Cuba and the military was put on high alert to invade at a moments notice. The U.S. then told th {http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/9a/Jupiter_IRBM.jpg} The Jupiter intermediate-range ballistic missile. The U.S. secretly agreed to withdraw these missiles from Italy and Turkey.e Russians and Cubans that if they remove the nuclear missiles from Cuba then the U.S. would remove their nuclear missile bases in Turkey. Cuba denied this offer continuing to reiterate the fact that they had the right to defend their lands every way necessary. This speech was not well perceived around the world, one of the popular newspapers in China declared that 650,000,000 Chinese people were standing behind the Cuban people. The crisis quickly stalemated due to negotiations making no headway. Later, after contemplating every option, Kennedy secretly ordered the dismantling of the United States missiles in Turkey and Italy. When this action was completed the Russian leader ordered the dismantling of their own missiles in Cuba. This was considered to be a big step in the way of making peace.

    People who lived in East Germany still tried to flee from Communist repression, so it became a huge barrier that included barbed wires, floodlights, machine-gun towers, minefields, and dog patrols. "The Berlin wall became as striking symbol of the divisions between the two superpowers". says Glencoe World History textbook {http://www.destination360.com/europe/germany/images/s/germany-berlin-wall.jpg} This a picture of the Berlin Wall that divides East and West Berlin.
    "The fall of the Berlin Wall had begun with the building of the Wall in 1961. However it took about three decades until the Wall was torn down. Several times people in the Communist countries rose up against the Communist system but they failed. The victims of the uprisings against the Communist dictatorship in Berlin 1953, Budapest 1956 or Prague 1968 will never be forgotten. In 1989 the first free labor union was founded in the communist Poland. The end of the communist system had begun. The Soviet Union could control their satellites yet but with the new leader Gorbatshov their politics changed in 1984 .Gorbatshov's reforms, Perestroika and Glasnost should renew the Stalinist system in the Soviet Union but not replace the communist system. The reforms in the Soviet Union also had its effects on the other communist countries, especially in Poland and Hungary. On August 23, 1989 Hungary opened the iron curtain to Austria. Months before East German tourists used their chance to escape to Austria from Hungary and in September 1989 more than 13 000 East German escaped via Hungary within three days. It was the first mass exodus of East Germans after the erection of the Berlin Wall in 1961. Mass demonstrations against the government and the system in East Germany begun at the end of September and took until November 1989". according to http://www.dailysoft.com/berlinwall/history/fall-of-berlinwall.htm .

    A new leader of the Soviet Union, named Nikita Khrushchev, rose in 1955. He strived to take advantage of the American concern about missiles to come up with a resolution of West Berlin. West Berlin was the part of Berlin that was very prosperous. It was a "Western island" in the midst of a poor East Germany.
    Lots of residents from East Germany, who were tired of being forced to be communist, slipped away through West Berlin. Khrushchev began to notice the decreasing population and he realized the need to stop the refugees from escaping through West Berlin. So, in response to the escaping refugees, in 1961, Khrushchev began to build a wall running between West Berlin and East Berlin.
