The beginning can be attributed to the end of WWII but more accurately it is deemed so in 1949 when the Soviets got ahold of their first nuclear weapon, the end of the Cold War is usually considered 1991 when the Soviet Union fell.

Arising out of important political, economic, and moral differences between the Soviet Union and the United States (and other nations associated with each), the Cold War's precise beginning is diversely identifiable. It may be seen as occurring at some point during World War II itself, in the first several years after World War II, or even as late as the 1950s, with the first 'proxy' military conflicts erupting around the world. Its ending is generally agreed to have occurred in 1991 with the 'fall' of the Soviet Union.
