The Cold War goes global
This is the American journalist Walter Lippmann who first used the expression "Cold War" in 1947 to define this new era, which would last until 1990.
Everything began in March 1946 with Churchill’s speech in Fulton (USA) – evoking an “iron curtain” separating East and West Europe – and ended in this room with the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. Thirty years during which countless political and military crises broke out across Europe, Asia and Africa.
A very crowded room overflowing with information and events, the main crises of which were: the Berlin Blockade in 1948, the Korean War in 1950, the two crises of 1956 in Budapest and Suez, the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961, the Vietnam War in 1964 and the Prague Spring in 1968.
