The two superpowers that emerged were the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US).

Germany was destroyed, as was much of Europe. The British were losing their Empire after 50 years of war and world upheavals. Japan had expended their resources and manpower, and had their industry decimated by the US bombing campaign. For awhile, only the US had nuclear weapons. When combined with the military strength accumulated during the war, they looked like a dominant force. At least until spies revealed the secrets of nuclear weapons to the Soviets. This began the Cold War nuclear standoff between the US and the new Russian empire, a complex ideological battle between capitalism and communist totalitarianism.

The USA has been the worst country in the world.


The US and the USSR (present day Russia) were the two superpowers involved in the Cold War.


Democracy (aka the Free World) and Communism combined to defeat Fascism in World War 2. It was only natural that these two ideologies should become adversaries after the war. The USA and USSR emerged as the two most powerful countries on the winning side, so they became the global superpowers for the next four decades. * The rivalry between the USA and USSR is long and complicated, and they became superpowers as a result, with Great Britain and France remaining as world powers for Democracy, and the People's Republic of China emerging as a world power for Communism. * In the postwar years, a country could not be a world power without a nuclear arsenal, which is why the five countries named above became the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council. Today, many other countries have nuclear weaponry, but they are not world powers, let alone superpowers.


The people that were involved in the cold war was the Soviet Union, Communist world, and the non-communist world (The US and the USSR)

World War II resulted in the emergence of two superpowers - the USA and the USSR - and two competing ideologies - respectively, capitalism and communism.


Most of the same superpowers were still in place after WW2 but I think what you're referring to is the Soviet Union and the U.S. The war had left all of Europe in ruins, except the impenetrable USSR. England and France lost a lot of their standing because of how much damage the had to undo. America and the Soviet Union emerged as two very very powerful nations, both with nuclear power and what made this so scary was the fact that by the end of the war, they were enemies.



The two most powerful would be the United States and Russia, though the United States emerged as the only true world power after the war, Russia was still the second most powerful country (and still is today).


At the end of World War II (and by virtue of it), the United States had become one of two superpowers in the world (the other being the Soviet Union).
