Series debuts November 17 at 9 pm on CBC
Cold War was a unique event in history. After World War 2, two powerful blocs, a democratic and capitalist west led by the United States and a communist world dominated by the Soviet Union faced each other. Each side claimed the other was an implacable ideological foe bent on the destruction of their way of life. This battle would never produce direct armed confrontation between the two countries, but it mobilized minds as never before. The Cold War was the ultimate psychological battle. Its weapons were love, hate and propaganda.
