Cold War (1947-1991)

Military service encompasses far more than combat on a battlefield, and the Veterans History Project collects the stories of all veterans, including those who served during “peacetime”—though as veterans of the era can attest, the Cold War was anything but peaceful. The following curated presentations draw attention to collections relating to veterans who served during the Cold War.

Our Research Guides, StoryMaps, and blog posts provide additional ways to explore the collections.
