The Cold War (1945-1998) in 10 mins.

The video depicts the number of nuclear explosions conducted in various parts of the globe from 1954-1998. After watching this, I wonder why anyone would want to spend hours reading any 300+ page book on the history of the Cold War. In around 10 minutes, the data reveals quite a lot.

If I were a history professor, I'd ask my students to write a 3-page term paper about the Cold War by just using this infographic.
