Time Capsule 8: The Cold War
In this Time Capsule, we explore the Cold War, a four-decade period of relative peace in Europe. The two great super powers--the United States and Soviet Union--lorded over not only a divided Europe, but also an increasingly divided world. Although the conflicts in Europe did not result in direct conflict (a hot war), proxy wars and covert operations ("cold" wars) in the developing world led to the toppling of elected leaders, installation of dictators, the death of hundreds of thousands, and a lasting legacy of division, militarization, destruction, and poverty wherever the two powers used their influence.
