The Question of “What if?” : The U.S. Army During the Cold War

Join us to learn more about the U.S. Army during the Cold War.


During World War II, the Soviet Union and the United States worked together to fight a common enemy; and after the war that relationship fell apart. Trust between the former allies broke down and fear took hold in its place. This mutual mistrust lead the two countries to confront the looming question of “what if?” That question would color the relationship between the two for the next 50 years. As a result, the Army developed new technology, equipment, and training to better protect Americans from the possibilities and threats posed by the “what if?”


In this History Talk, you will learn how Soldiers worked together to keep the “what if?” from becoming a reality during the Cold War.
