Best Answer


in the cold war there were no weapons or fighting it was really just a big spying game because America and the USSR were terrified that either one of them were going to drop an atomic bomb after ww2

also because the Russians moved nuclear rockets into Cuba which scared the USA who then targeted the USSR with roctets but no-one actually fired anything
