What have you come up with, so far?

For who I have the US and the Soviet Union. For what I only have that it was based on the beliefs of capitalism and communism. For where I have that there is not a specific location but examples of some locations include US, USSR, Europe, Berlin, Vietnam, and Cuba. For when I have 1947 - 1991.

That's pretty good. It was truly global in reach, and it affected all parts of the world as the US and the Soviet Union, the two superpowers of the world, sought to re-enforce and expand their spheres of influence throughout the world. That's why it was significant. There was also the threat that, if the two superpowers were to engage in direct hostilities and confrontation, a global nuclear war would break out.

A 'hot war' is militarily active.
A 'cold war' is not.

Truman could have stopped it by using our temporary monopoly on nuclear weapons. But his owners made so much money in the defense industry that they ordered him to let Russia and China expand enough to constitute a legitimate threat.

@Sage of Main Street,
Yes, Sage. They made a movie about this in the 1960s
