Although they were allies during WWII, the United States and the Soviet Union, fueled by their fundamental ideological differences, embarked on what would be called the Cold War starting in the post-WWII era. As both sides would eventually have nuclear and atomic bomb technology which potentially spelled the end of the world if used, both sides instead largely used propaganda to win the Cold War. The propaganda was both official (i.e. issued by the government) and unofficial, and was designed to make its own side look good while making the other side look bad. The propaganda was aimed to its own citizens, to the other side and to others around the world, who were often looking to the two superpowers for support. One problem often was that the propaganda had to match the reality that people saw and faced on the ground. Written by Huggo

I was always interested in politics at a young and i always wondered about the cold war. My parents told me that it was just like to guys flexing there muscles. Although this gave me a general idea i still wanted to learn more. Then i discovered love hate and propaganda the cold war. I watched doc zone programs before like meltdown witch showed me about how our economy crashed in a way that showed that the days of CEO's with high pay checks and company's getting away with everything where over (and at the time i thought so). So naturally i went to doc zone again and this series taught me 1 thing, that the soviets where bad and America was good. So i went on believing that for a while until i done more digging on what actually happened during this war and i discovered (thanks to many documentary's including Oliver stone's untold history of the united states)that the united states was more bad then good and intimidated the soviets. So don't wast your time with this show it leaves out all the facts except for the ones that paint a bad picture the soviets. If you really want to learn about the cold war check Oliver stones documentary untold history of the united states it is significantly better
