    Communist trial cases were very significant because the U.S became extremely terrified and many people were wrongly accused.

      I think it was the establishment of the Berlin Wall as it is one of the biggest symbols of oppression in the history of the world. It was depressing seeing people live on the east side being miserable what with the stasi and the families that were seperated.

    When the United States first used the atomic bomb.


  • December 25th 1991 the Hammer and Sickle flag was lowered for the last time over the Kremlin. That was a significant memory for me and also a relief. I was always afraid of the USSR as a kid and that eased my fears

    I think it was very critical when The United States forces rose from about 60,000 in mid-1965 to a peak of over 543,000 in 1969. They joined 800,000 South Vietnamese troops and about 69,000 men from Australia, New Zealand, the Philippine, South Korea, and Thailand. The North Vietnamese and the Viet Cong had over 300,000 troops. When the US allied up with those other countries you pretty much knew the war would be over soon.

    Yalta conference, February 1945, when Stalin was given control of Eastern Europe.

      Giving Stalin too much control was putting too much trust in Soviet hands. Eventually, the Eastern European countries were the first to fall under Communist rule.

    The cuban missle crysis because it was a big scare that had a lot of people on edge. I also liked the movie they made out of it.

    I think the fall of USSR and winning US in this war had the biggest impact.

  • sam

    I think the cuban missile crisis because it created tensions that lasted for 20 years.

    I have always been big on free speech/press/thought and making information public. So I think the introduction of Radio Free Europe was of major importantce in the Cold War. It helped to give europeans the kind of free access to news and important info that they had a right to know.

    I think the bay of pigs and the Cuban missile crisis were the biggest things the public knows about during the cold war.

    The cuban missile crisis, it’s mind blowing how close we came to destroy this planet.

    February 9, 1946: Stalin hostile speech. He said that communism & capitalism were incompatible. It scared a lot of people, and rightfully so.

    I find the failed Bay of pigs invasion to be one of the best examples of how the U.S. wanted to stop the flow of Communism to reach the shpres of Florida. By unsucessfully trying to over throw Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. I’am also intriged by the things we have not been told by our govermet, and the secret “BLACK OPS” missions.

  • Tyler Chester

    When conflicts between the U.S. and the Soviet Union were becoming tense, both were afraid if they went to war and possibly end life on the planet.

    The fall of the Berlin Wall, the most visible sign that the Iron Curtain was falling

    i feel the biggest event in the cold war was after world war 2, when in 1945 Germany was divided/split between the communists and the allied forces.

  • Brian Heitzenrater (FrehleyzComet)

    Vietnam War (1955-1975)! This bad boy caused more tension inside the U.S.A. than just about any other event up to that time. So many soldiers died or were permanently handicapped for life. Many more were messed up in the head from the drugs and the trauma of the war. The tension back home was very high as well. Anti-war rallies fueled by drugs and rock-n-roll. Crosby Stills Nash and Young wrote one of the biggest anti-war songs with “Ohio” which was a depiction of the mighty U.S. Government man-handling it’s own people. The Kent State shootings were just one of many tragedies that took place on U.S. soil during the Vietnam War.

  • I think that one of the most pivotal moments of the Cold War was the Perestroika, it effectively ended socialism and the Cold War itself, although the Cuban Missile crisis could have been seen as just as important.
