About this Quiz

Spanning nearly half a century, the Cold War defined two generations of Americans. Fear of new, catastrophically destructive weapons led to paranoia. Wars across the globe were framed as a faceoff between good and evil. Any one of these conflicts had the potential to lead to world domination or annihilation. Antiwar movements encouraged a new counterculture of hippies, musicians, and revolutionaries. And in the end, the Cold War left one power on top of the world. How much do you know about the Cold War? Let's find out.
