Latin America

After the second world war, gave way to another international conflict: the cold war, which was a dispute that pitted After 1945 to United States and its allies, on one side, and the Group of Nations led by the Union of socialist Soviet Republics (USSR), the other 7. There was a military conflict live between two superpowers, but arose intense economic and diplomatic struggles. This pugilato was called how cold that produced no direct military confrontation, which were killed, missing, torture, massacres, but in reality if he had them. This conflict did not affect the powers of that time, since the field of battle, soldiers, the deaths, the spoils of war, poverty, etc., occurred in Latin America, as you can see below.
