I am a child of the Cold War.
The dangers of the nuclear arms race were hammered into my head in elementary school.
Ronald Reagan became President of the United States just as I turned 10 years old and that really sucked.
The horror chamber that became Central- and South America made me cringe all throughout high school.
And then when I left high school and went to University, it kinda all just ended, just like that.
From a historical perspective I “like” the period.
On this blog you will find several articles as well as documentaries that deal with the Cold War.
A couple of weeks ago, I found a new (old) one.
