The Cold War was a period of heightened tensions between the Western bloc, led by the United States, and the Eastern bloc, led by the Soviet Union. This period lasted from 1949, with the Berlin Airlift and the testing of the first Soviet nuclear bomb, to 1991, when the Soviet Union collapsed. Although the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. were never directly at war, they fought various proxy wars in Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. The Cold War is related to the Space Race, which took place in the 1950s and 1960s.
