The Cold War is a reference to something else, not literally cold, but because no shots were ever fired. The Cold War was a race to the moon, and to who could make the most nuclear weapons fastest. Hope I helped.

Technically speaking, the "cold war" never became "hot", because the USA and the USSR never fought a war against each other, which would have involved nuclear weapons and the end of the human race. There was fighting in Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan (1980's) but, there was never a direct war between the United States and the Soviet Union.

There had been a poster in my IB AP European History class that said "Cuban Missile Crisis: When the Cold War Got Hot." So the Cuban Missile Crisis was probably when the Cold War got hot.
