When start the cold war?
In Cold War
The cold war didn't have a specific start or ending time but if i had to give one I'd say that it started right after WWII (1945) and ended in the early 90's, probably 1991, the fall of the Soviet Union.

RESPONSE 1 Stalin started the Cold War by invading Poland and reneging on his promise to allow free elections there. This was followed by Soviet occupation of much of the rest of Eastern Europe, as well as aiding communist expansion in Asia. . RESPONSE 2 Ronald Reagan ended the Cold War by fo…llowing through on his promise to stand up to and to outspend the Soviets in the Arms Race. The Soviets realized Reagan said what he meant and meant what he said. When he proposed to build SDI or Missile Defense, some of the press laughed, but the Soviets saw in Reagan a track-record of following through on his commitments, so they raised the white flag. The Cold War began in a series of events from the conferences of the Big Three in 1943-45 to the complex events of the post-war era, in which both sides contributed. In any case, the Cold War began because the U.S. would not allow the Soviets a sphere of influence in Eastern Europe, and because the Soviets took a series of aggressive actions to expand their areas of control and influence all over the World. The Cold War ended not because of Reagan's actions: his increased armament only antagonized the USSR and intensified the Cold War. The Cold War ended because a reformist faction of the Communist Party came to power in the USSR, with Andropov, and then again with Gorbachev, because the old-guard, and just plain old, Soviet leaders kept dying. Gorbachev, from a younger generation, had a much more critical attitude toward the USSR and was much more open-minded, educated, intelligent, and worldly than any other previous leader - even more than Reagan, too. There was, however, one other group responsible for the end of the Cold War: the peoples of Eastern Europe and the USSR, who organized and protested at great personal risks. Their protests, and Gorbachev's acceptance of their roles, brought about the end of the Cold War, not U.S. arms deployments, which may have delayed the whole process. . RESPONSE 3 The origins of the Cold War came from a lot of things. One of these, for example, was when Lenin took Russia out of World War I in 1919. This left the West with a lot more to do. Also, just the ideologies on their own led to a very strong rivalry among the superpowers. According to communism, there is an ongoing inevitable worldwide revolution that will occur. This means that the world will turn communist. This is what the USSR and the US believed, which is why the latter was afraid of the Soviets and put a lot of work into breaking it down. The reason as to why the US was involved with the Marshall Plan, Korean War, Vietnam War, etc. was to hold communism back. . When Reagan upped the defense spending, the Soviets tried to keep up. When forced to choose between guns and food, the Soviets ALWAYS chose guns. However, this was an arms race that their economy just could not support without their people suffering extreme hardships. Their economy simply wasn't strong enough to maintain the grip on their satellites. They really had no choice but to let their satellites go. On the other hand, if the U.S. hadn't forced the USSR into upping the ante on defense spending, perhaps they would have had the resources to maintain their control over their satellites for a few more years. President Nixon wrote a book THE REAL WAR. It was published in 1980. It recommended that the U.S. increase defence spending massivly and that if we did there was no way the Soviets could keep up and would in fact collapse. It is amazing to me that a published volume gets no credit. Nixon also recommended the U.S. stay out of the Middle East. At the time the book was written 15 of the 23 Muslim nations had been overthrown in the prior 10 years or so. Nixon was probably aware of the siege of Vienna in 1683 when the invading army of the Ottoman empire asked for the keys to that city, citing their treatment of a city who had recently surrendered to their army and had in fact been massacred.

The beginning of the Cold War could be traced back to Churchill's use of the term "Iron Curtain", on 3 May 1946. This came to symbolise the beginning of the Cold War because it was the period marked by political tension and military rivalry, stopping just short of escalating into full-scale war, bet…ween the West as represented by the USA, and the East headed by the Soviet Union. However, the Cold War did not have an "official" start date with a single day in mind. Some historians feel it began at the end of World War II, in late 1945, when Josef Stalin of the USSR refused to let the Eastern European nations go after the war. The US, Britain and France demanded the nations be allowed to chose their own types of government. Stalin was not going to let that happen, and his actions escalated the arms race of the Cold War. The Cold War could really only truly be seen to have ended with the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the reunification of the two Germanys - one symbolising the East and the other symbolising the West - in 1990. Shortly after this, many Russian states began to break free, seeking independence from Russia. (MORE)
Cold War . It arose out of the clash of ideologies and interests of the two main winners of WW2 - the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. (and their allies in both cases).\n. \nAn important early incident that brought the tensions very close to the boil was the Soviet blockade of the three Western Sectors of …Berlin, which started in June, 1948. Much to the suprise of Stalin, the West responded by flying in supplies. The Berlin Airlift continued till after the blockade was lifted in May, 1949.. The Cold War started when WWII was over, and the Soviet Union controled all of the countries that it freed during WWII. The U.S. was not in favor of this, especially scince the Soviet Union was communist. The U.S. spoke to them about this, and that is what started the Cold War. The Cold War was an arms race, a space race, and a spread of harsh words. (MORE)
No individual or country started the Cold War. It was opposing political views between the East and West after the second world war. Both sides believed the other was bent on domination
It was mainly because the existence of nuclear weapons. That was why the conflict stayed a 'cold war'; both sides tried to undermine and destroy each other, but they dared not let it go to actual fighting - that would have destroyed them. So they would compete in almost everything By AD9410(henry11…1) (MORE)

One of the reasons that the cold war started was nuclear weapons. When two countries both have that much destructive power, they begin to wonder if they trust that sort of power in the other country's hands. Ideological differences were another big reason... the US hated Communism, and the USSR h…ated Capitalism. Both sides wanted to spread their form of government to other countries, so there was a lot of tension there. I think there was also personal dislike between world leaders, and that is how it began.

The cold war, an ideological conflict between Communist andnon-Communist countries, started after World War II (1939-45) whenthe Allies (United States, Britain, France, and the Soviet Union)disagreed over how to govern occupied Germany. Although the SovietUnion and the Western Allies were supposed t…o rule Germany jointly,the arrangement was beset by the spread of communism. During thewar Soviet leaders had joined the United States and WesternEuropean countries to fight the Germans, but the Soviets supportedcommunism, a political and economic system that they believed hadto combat and overtake capitalism, which was practiced elsewhere inthe Western world. By 1947 the United States had formulated policyto prevent the Soviet Union from exporting communism to othercountries. (MORE)
The Traditional View At first, western writers blamed Russia. They said Stalin was trying to build up a Soviet empire. The Revisionist View Later, however, some western historians blamed America. They said Truman had not understood how much Russia had suffered in the Second World War. The P…ost-Revisionists Later still, historians think BOTH sides were to blame - that there were hatreds on both sides. Most recently, historians agree that the Cold War was primarily a clash of beliefs - Communism versus Capitalism. (MORE)
Atomic weapons started the Cold War (US in 1945, USSR in 1949-dates in which the respective countries obtained the A-Bomb).
The great depression was started by the stockmarket crash of 1929 in the US, resulting in the 1930's depression. The cold war began as a result of nuclear weapons, the first of which was detonated in combat in August 1945. Consequently, the cold war began in 1945.. WWII brought the US OUT OF THE DE…PRESSION.

when the usa and the soviet union both wanted more power.. While the above answer is correct, the arms race started when the United States launched the first ever Atom bomb. With this and the end of WWII, there were increased tensions between the US and the USSR because of acts during negotiating w…here the USSR didn't exactly get what it wanted. Also because of acts during WWII where the soviets were left alone against Nazi strikes. So after the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki the USSR developed its first Nuke and things got interesting. Then countries got their nukes established as well. Then the hydrogen bomb was invented and its plans leaked throughout the world. That was the beginning of the arms race where USSR and USA wanted to get more power, more weapons, and to appear more threatening. (MORE)
Answer . Most people suggest that the Cold War began in 1949 when the Soviet Union tested its first atomic bomb.
The Cold War (1945-1991) began in Berlin,Germany just when the Berlin Airlift began. The Cold War ended in Moscow,Russia when President Gorbachev declared Russia a free country.
it increased the tension between the USSR and the West as both parties showed through the Berlin Blockade that they were firm on their stand. Stalin would not lift the blockade until Berlin was under the full control of the USSR and the USA would not stop flying supplies into Berlin until the blocka…de was lifted. It was a non-violent conflict between the United States and the Soviet Union. (MORE)
Arising out of important political, economic, and moral differencesbetween the Soviet Union and the United States (and other nationsassociated with each), the Cold War's precise beginning isdiversely identifiable. It may be seen as occurring at some pointduring World War II itself, in the first seve…ral years after WorldWar II, or even as late as the 1950s, with the first 'proxy'military conflicts erupting around the world. Its ending isgenerally agreed to have occurred in 1991 with the 'fall' of theSoviet Union. (MORE)
Nationalism may have been responsible for WW2, in which Germany, Italy, and Japan promoted themselves as conquerors. But the Communist Nations of the Cold War didn't neccessarily promote THEIR own countries, as much as they did the "Comrade" bit..."Communism.". For US GI's fighting in Korea or Viet…nam the enemy were "Commies!" Soviets, Red Chinese, North Koreans, North Vietnamese, Viet Cong...were all "Commies." Or "Reds." (MORE)
Britain and France were in ruins immediately after WW2 ended in 1945, which is when the cold war began. The US and USSR were the "big boys" on the block; and they had the face off (stand-off), commencing at the East/West Berlin line.
After the war alot of countries went into extreme debt trying to pay for the war and all the supplies they had to borrow.
Korea was a hot war. Cold war means no gunfire. No deaths. A hot war is a shooting war...deaths.. Korea was part of the cold war. One "hot" battle of a cold war.. It started when the Communist North Koreans INVADED the free South Korean Republic in 1950.. Joseph Stalin of the Soviet Union urged t…he North Koreans on in return for the war material he gave them: T-34 Russian Tanks, MiG-15 Jet Fighter Aircraft, and tons of trucks, small arms and ammunition.. The war ended when he died in 1953. (By Armistice). (MORE)
The Cold War started during the presidency of Harry S. Truman.Truman was America's 33rd President, serving from 1945 to 1953.
Churchill's speech predicted that an Iron Curtain would descend across Europe, it did not cause it to happen. The Russians did that.
When the first nuclear weapons were detonated in August 1945, the cold war began.. Atomic weapons created the cold war.. Without atomic weapons there would have been NO cold war.
When he and America began racing for weapons devlopment, and also fought in Korea during the Korean War.
The Cold War began as World War II was ending. American leaders saw the power and ambitions of the Soviet Union as a threat to our national security. The Cold War was a war of words and ideologies rather than a shooting war, although at times the Cold War turned âhotâ as in Korea and Vietn…am. Basically, the Cold War was a rivalry between the United States as leader of the western democracies, and the Soviet Union and the nations that were controlled by the communists.\nThere is a good case for the location of the start of the Cold War in the Eastern European nations that the Soviet Army "liberated" from the Nazi Army and then failed to allow free elections, as promised by Stalin at Yalta. Also, when Germany was divided into four zones following the war, the Soviet Union refused to unite its zone with the other three resulting in the creation of East Germany (communist) and West Germany (democratic).

It lasted officially from September 2, 1945 according to U.S. Federal Law, (the date the Japanese formally surrendered thus marking the end of World War II) to December 26, 1991 (the date of the formal dissolution of the Soviet Union).. May 1, 2003 is the cold war victory day.
The Cold War had no specific start date, unlike, say, WWII, but it started almost as soon as WWII finished, in 1845.
Began with the A-bomb in 1945, ended when the Berlin Wall came down in 1989. Paper signing, formerly ending it, came in 1991.
There are three main answers to this question. . The first is that the atomic bomb was used for mainly military purposes to end the second world war quickly. Many believed it would be better and would save more American lives. . The second is that the bomb was used to scare the Soviets and show t…hem the United States' power. This would prove that the atomic bomb did in fact start the Cold War. . The third would be that the first bomb was used to quickly defeat Japan and the second bomb was used to show power. I just had to write an essay on this topic and this is what I found. (MORE)
No, they did not go to jail. It would be hard to narrow down responsibility to a few people. While the leaders of the US and the Soviet Union certainly didn't help, the angst and paranoia was caused by millions of people thinking the same way..
The bomb was used to scare the Soviets and show them the United States' power .
It didn't. The Soviets were already distancing themselves from the west. It would be good to get an Eastern perspective on this: I just don't see it happening. The Cold War arose from the ashes of WW2, why is quite another question....
It didn't start in the 1960's. The Cold War began in the 1940's, an after effect on of the peace settlement of World War 2. The Cuban Missile Crisis, a key event of the Cold War occurred in 1961..
The primary focus was on Germany. After World War 2, the US and Russia split responsibility for policing the remains of the 3rd Reich. That division was key in splitting the globe into two major factions..
No one single event started the end of the Cold War. Rather it was a series of factors that combined.
There was never actual cold war, however it is said that it all began between America and USSR on Cuban ground.. last year
Harry S. Truman was US president in 1946 when the Cold War is considered to have began.
President Truman, a man not fond of Communism, hinted at and essentially teased Stalin over the US's possession of Nuclear Weapons (this is prior to the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki). When Stalin asked for a working bomb, or even just the plans: Truman refused. After World War II ended, relati…ons between the US and USSR were icy at best, and tensions continued to mount: with Germany and Eastern Europe became a land-grab between the two powers. (MORE)
the Cold War stated when Stalin broke the Yalta agreement byforcing communism upon Eastern European Nations.
The exact date of the start is debated upon. However, the common agreement is that i started at the Yalta Conference between US, USSR and the UK. The Yalta conference was in August 1945.
I think you are getting it back the front. After World War Two there were two major world powers - the USA and the Soviet Union. Both had been very distrustful of each other before the war, but were allies during the war due to a common enemy. In the post war era both sides went back to their mutu…al mistrust. Since the war had changed the balance of power in the world, both sides feared the other side, thinking they would try to expand their influence and possibly overthrow them. This led to the cold war. So the presence of two superpowers led to the cold war, not the cold war leading to two superpowers.... in fact the cold war finally led to the collapse of one of the superpowers (USSR) (MORE)
He made several secret agreements with Stalin in Yalta, dividing Europe between themselves (namely, the continent was to have two spheres of influence; one supervised by USSR, and the other by the UK and France). He is the one who decided which countries should be allowed to become Communist in "fre…e" elections, and which countries should become/remain democratic. It could be argued that Winston Churchill started the Cold War because Churchill's "iron curtain" speech is commonly acknowledged as the start of the Cold War. This could be because he accused Stalin of drawing an "iron curtain" over Eastern Europe - referring to the soviet control of these countries. The metaphor "Iron Curtain" implies that it is hostile, unfriendly and impenetrable. I do not believe that he caused the Cold War but he was merely a catalyst for a series of inevitable events. Also, by doing the speech, it could be argued that he put pressure on America to be even more hostile to the USSR. Although he may not have caused it, he may have started it by showing open hostilities towards the USSR. (MORE)
It was pretty much straight after WW2 and no one really wanted to get back into another one. THE MANE REASON is because nuclear weapons was now introduced with both sides neither wanting to be blown to shreds. America at one point was on DefCom2 which is one level away from NUCLEAR WAR! It was a war… but with no actual fighting hence the name 'cold' war. They ended up fighting about technology and which race was the better technologically advanced. for example the space race,the arms race and so on. Besides who wants to go to war, no one in the WW1 or WW2 wanted to go to war. it was because they had to. (except for Hitler ofcourse!) (MORE)

The cold war was a period of tension between the two major worldnations (U.S. and the Soviet Union) each wanting to dominate theworld scene and each having enough nuclear weapons to utterlydestroy the other.
