It started shortly after WWII ended in the late 1940's when the allied forces were dividing up Germany. Russia took half of Berlin and East Germany and the rest of the Allied forces got the rest. Russia immediately refused entrance or exit of any citizen once they took over their claimed lands and the war began. In the 50's they erected the Berlin Wall. It ended in 1991 when the Soviet Union fell.

Did France take place in the Cold War?

I am sorry while as a Canadian it would be nice to think of France as an incident, it was not. ;) I think the question is did France take part in the cold war and did the cold war happen in France. Generally France is a NATO country and was actively involved in Opposing the USSR and its goals during the cold war. That would mean that there were incidents in France constituting that the cold war happened partially in France.
