This book explores the many concurrent events that helped the United States to win the Cold War. It looks at politicians, policies, and weapon systems, but also delves further into the achievements that the United States made in consumer products, basic research, higher education, and space, to name a few. The author shows how such accomplishments were concurrent and interrrelated, explaining technological subjects in layperson's terms. Readers of this book will undoubtedly gain a more thorough understanding of the United States' Cold War victory. More important, this study will show readers that, in the author's words, "our future looks bright" and that the diverse successes of the U.S. in the Cold War show the true quality of the American spirit.
