Two captivating manuscripts in one book:

  • The Cold War: A Captivating Guide to the Tense Conflict between the United States of America and the Soviet Union Following World War II
  • The Space Race: A Captivating Guide to the Cold War Competition Between the United States and Soviet Union to Reach the Moon

The seeds of the Cold War were sown toward the end of World War II. During the war, the United States and the Soviet Union were reluctant partners. The communist doctrine of the Soviets was decidedly at odds with the US notion of capitalism, free enterprise, and rugged individualism. But as is often the case in history, despite their differences, America and Soviet Russia had a common enemy that brought them together—Nazi Germany.

But soon after Truman took over the presidency of the United States, American and Soviet relations began to rapidly go south. Before the war was even over, disagreements arose over how the postwar world should be administered.
