At the end of the Second World War, U.S. and Russian forces rushed to recruit the top Nazi scientists in the hope of gaining access to new technologies for high-tech airplanes, sophisticated rockets, and even, perhaps, a German atomic bomb. This race marked the beginning of the Cold War, which would last for the next forty years.
