Misconceptions About the Cold War

submitted by Huzzaz on 11/27/21 1

The Cold War is relatively recent history, but there are till plenty of myths about it to debunk. Justin wages war against Cold War misconceptions, from the romantic image of the Cold War-era spy to the comedic oeuvre of Yakov Smirnoff (sort of). If you think the only Cold War close call was the Cuban Missile Crisis, you'll want to watch. You'll learn about why the end of the Cold War is a bit harder to pin down than you might think, and how toilet paper (or lack thereof) led to a breakthrough for military intelligence.
