APOCALYPSE: WAR OF WORLDS
The rise of the Cold War
The period between 1945 and 1991 was defined by the confrontation of two worlds and two systems. The capitalist West, dominated by the ever-powerful United States, was pitted against the communist East, the Soviet Empire with both sides possessing the ultimate weapon, the nuclear bomb.
This terrifying balance of fear paradoxically ensured a half-century of peace and prosperity in the West.
There were many heated moments during this Cold War, with Asia being the chosen ground for these superpowers to confront each other through proxies engaged in merciless battles.
