No, WWl was a real war with shooting and killing that lasted for 4 years, the cold war was between the USA and Russia, a lot of Sabre rattling and threats to blow each other up.

I will add to the above answer which, in itself, is quite correct.

The term "Cold War" usually refers to the period immediately following the Second World War and was essentially a staring contest between the USA (and its allies), and the USSR (and its allies), to see who would blink first...keeping in mind that the USA and the USSR were, in fact allies during WWII.

The Cold War consisted primarily of differences in ideology and did not result in armed conflict. It did, however, create great tension between countries resulting in the buildup of nuclear weapons and other horrible devices of mass destruction, and involved much espionage between the countries.

No, it is the continuing problem after WW2. The cold war was with Russia. No world war one is not considered the cold war, the cold war refers to Russia and the US, no battles were fought on field, mainly the building of nuclear missiles and missile sites. In a cold war, only threats are exchanged.
