    After World War II, the western countries and the Soviet Union divided up Europe. The western countries kept their territories as democratic and capitalistic. The Soviet Union kept their countries under communist dictators. Both the western countries, led by the United States, and eastern countries, led by the Soviet Union, wanted to spread their economic and political beliefs. This conflict led to the nuclear arms race that threatened the entire world.
