Today we had a review of the nature of the Cold War, and discussed the occupation and eventual partition of Germany after the Second World War. We were introduced to words such as: denazification, Potsdam Conference, satellite state, Bizonia, DEFCON, and many allusions to "brinkmanship." We learned about the Berlin Blockade (1948-49) and heard about the Korean and Vietnam wars. More on those two, soon.
