This Day in History: 1988 – Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev wins the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in ending the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union.
Fact of the Day: On November 9, 1989, a little more than a year after Mikhail Gorbachev won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in ending the Cold War, the Berlin Wall, an icon of the struggle between capitalism and communism, began to fall in large chunks, as east and west Germany reunited.
Strange, but True: The United States and the Soviet Union never acted on the tension in the Cold War—it remained a real “will they, won’t they” affair up until the end. There were, however, several proxy wars featuring one of the two superpowers, meant to save costs and lives for one superpower, while demoralizing and exhausting the other. The Vietnam War serves as an example of this for the United States, while a war with Afghanistan in the 1980s is an example for the Soviet Union.
