Cold War LA

Did you know during the cold war that Los Angeles was surrounded by nuclear weapons?  Or with the help of a newspaper, the city was mocked bombed by a squadron of planes?  We even had the Soviet National Convention here!

Check out all this and more at the Cold War LA site.  Cold War LA is a digital project that serves as an educational resource about the social, cultural, and political aspects of the Cold War era in Los Angeles for students, educators, veterans, and hobbyists.  And yes there are a few maps too!
