The Cold War (1947 to 1991) between the United States and the Soviet Union lasted from post World War 2 to the fall of the Berlin Wall.  During those years the two nations escalated the tension between them through boycotts, arms races and the “space race.”  Through one of the best games ever designed, Twilight Struggle, this class will explore the history and conflict between the USA and the USSR during the Cold War years. This complex and award winning game serves as the catalyst for students to learn about an important period in our nation’s development (and near annihilation). We will play the game as a tournament so to explore as much of the Cold War as possible.  Which governmental philosophy will triumph: capitalism or communism?
