After the World War II, a rivalry was established between the USA and the Soviet Union, a rivalry developed at a scientific, economic and political level. Each side tried to propagate greater power than the other in each of these fields. All this turmoil was called the Cold War. The term was first coined by presidential and financial adviser Bernard Baruch during a congressional debate in 1947. The Cold War reached its peak in 1948 to 1953. During this period the Soviets attempted an unsuccessful blockade of the western side of Berlin. Meanwhile, the US and its allies formed the North Atlantic Pact, NATO, a pact created as a response to the Soviets' tendency to overrule Europe (1949). All this sounds very actual from the fact that similar developments are happening throughout the current conflict in Ukraine. This paper aims to place an emphasis on the main events during the Cold War so that the reader can notice the correlation with what is happening today.
