The Cold War was a period of East-West competition, tension, and conflict short of full-scale war. It was characterized by mutual perceptions of hostile intention between military-political alliances or blocs. Quoting from a Veterans of Foreign Wars publication, "By definition the Cold War would seem to exclude the concept of combat. And for 45 years of its duration, this fiction was maintained——". "The cold fight to contain communism worldwide (which excludes the full-fledged wars in Korea and Vietnam) involved numerous hostile encounters and claimed the lives of at least 359 Americans." After Premier Stalin's death, East-West relations went through alternate phases of relaxation and confrontation. A final period resulted in the collapse of the Berlin Wall, the international symbol of East-West confrontation, in November of 1989. It was during this latter period that independence for former USSR republics as well as arms reduction led to increased cooperation between the two powers.
