During World War II, the United States, Britain, and Russia all worked together to take down Hitler. Although after the war, the coordination between the U.S. and Russia became extremely tense which inevitably lead to the Cold War. The U.S. was worried that Russia would spread communism after World War II. Russia was concerned with the U.S. arms increase and intervention in international affairs. The distrust between the two nations resulted in the Cold war which lasted until 1991.
The torches were already lit and the light from the flames, flickered all across the walls. Kayden, bewildered, started to question whether he was going insane or if this was actually happening right now. Another loud thud echoed throughout the walls. As he progressed his way throughout the never-ending walls quietly, a large shadow blackened the area. The torches’ flames were extinguished, but what could have caused of that to happen? Moving stealthily as quiet as he could, Kayden stopped as if his body had become frozen with fear. Not being able to unsheath his silver sword, the air became massively thick, and a pair of gleaming golden eyes looked straight at him from within the
His chest rose steadily, before with a quick flick of his wrist he tossed the hilt across the room- the clatter of its components hitting the ground send reverberations throughout the crypt that echoed up the stairs and out the same passageway he had entered. Were it any other place, and any other heirloom to part with, he would have acted as though this meant nothing. He would have maintained the facade of stoicism, but it was now that he allowed himself to crumble. With his head bowed to the floor and a hand bracing his form against the door frame.
John Lewis Gaddis, is a leading American Historian of the Cold War. He is the Professor of history at Yale University. He is already the author of six books on the same subject. The Cold War: A New History, however, has been written on a less cosmic level. He has distilled a life time of research into this short but comprehensive book. He has given new avenues to old controversies in worldly and stylish, yet direct and plain-spoken manner. The book offers a lot of summaries to intricate historical issues and provides new avenues of thinking about conflict which arose out of pre-emption and ended in the hope for the world.
Una retrieved it right away. She took the tiny dragon charm and slid it onto a slender silver chain, then affixed it around Audra’s neck. The dragon rested right over Audra’s heart.
Namid stood stubbornly waiting for more to come flying from Lindsey. She wasn't after going to simply stand there and bend before anyone, much less a turn coat who's own people had nearly turned them into space dust. It was true, both the Alliance and the Confederates had been present at their jail break at the prison. And from what she could see even if the Confederates were supposedly the good guys, they sure as hell didn't care about any of the people there. At least none of those that didn't mean anything to whatever goal they were there to achieve.
In The Cold War: A New History, John L. Gaddis creates a thorough timeline of the events stretching from the end of World War II through the fall of the USSR which helps newer generations understand the gravity of the situation. As Michael Bechloss said “By 2006, Americans too young to have lived through the era of duck-and-cover drills require a scholar of extraordinary gifts to tell why nine presidents deployed our national treasure against an empire that broke apart so clumsily in the end.” This quote does an excellent job explaining how my generation and the ones following will have a limited understanding of the events surrounding the cold war and their role in shaping the world we know today. As Gaddis himself said in a NPR interview;
With this book, a major element of American history was analyzed. The Cold War is rampant with American foreign policy and influential in shaping the modern world. Strategies of Containment outlines American policy from the end of World War II until present day. Gaddis outlines the policies of presidents Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon, including policies influenced by others such as George Kennan, John Dulles, and Henry Kissinger. The author, John Lewis Gaddis has written many books on the Cold War and is an avid researcher in the field. Some of his other works include: The United States and the Origins of the Cold War, 1941-1947, The Long Peace: Inquiries into the History of the Cold War, We Now Know: Rethinking Cold War
In the year 3000 A.D there is no civilization. Earth has been decimated by a terrible nuclear war and man is extinct. In their last months on earth, humankind built thousands of fallout shelters. In these shelters were cryo stasis tubes that would keep the residents asleep until the day came when earth could be inhabited.
As he got his last shot off, he heard another shot from his left and felt a sharp pain in his forearm, he crawled back to his cover before his enemy could confirm him. He quickly ripped his sleeve off and examined the wound. He patched himself with some field bandage and dressing which stung tremendously. He planned out that he had to kill the enemy to escape and he only had a pistol revolver to do it
It is 1945 and some of my generation has already arrived, with more yet to come. The month is June and I just arrived. President Truman is in office. The war in Europe just ended, and the war with Japan is about to end. The Cold War has started but it will be two years before they officially call it the Cold War. In case you were wondering that is me in the carriage, as you can see I am not really too concerned about world events as of yet. I’m pretty sure that the rest of my generation isn’t either. It is also my guess that we won’t be for a while. However, as I said history is relevant and many world events will take place in the next nineteen years that will lead some of us toward war, and others toward what I believe to committing the unforgivable crime of treason.
With fury enlightening his soul, Gus exposed his razor-sharp claws to the giant, bloodthirsty ogre. Adrenaline was pumping through Gus's veins ready to claw through his skull and dissect him from head to toe. Every step he took he could feel the floor vibrating as if there was an earthquake. He took a big shaky gasp of air and let out the biggest howl his even done. He could feel his veins pumping out of his furry neck as he howled. A few seconds later the Wolf pack have arrived. The moon was finally fully exposed enriching them with power. All 20 of them, lined up getting ready to charge at the fierce ogre. He let out a mighty ogre roar which summoned his donkeys that worship him. There was not a sound but birds chirping and hearts pumping
