The U.S.S.R. (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics), representing communism and socialism, and the U.S.A (United States of America), representing democracy and capitalism. These two countries were the "leaders", per se, of two opposing organisations: The Warsaw Pact, and NATO, respectively. This is incomplete. I highly recommend finding a better answer.

No battles . I think you are missing the point of the Cold War because there were no battles it was called "Cold". There were a few standoffs and threats, but for the most part it was the western powers looking at the communist dictatorship through the lens of containment.
The Space Race between the United States and the Soviet Union grew out of the Cold War. The rivalry between these two super powers led to major technological advances and achievements at the time.
