Final Answer :
C
Explanation :
The Cold War was a conflict primarily between the United States and its democratic allies and the Soviet Union and communist-allied countries. It was characterized by political tension, military buildup, proxy wars, and a nuclear arms race between the two superpowers. The Asian Tigers, European Union, South America, and leftist guerrillas were not directly involved in the Cold War. The Axis powers of Germany, Italy, and Japan were adversaries of the United States and its allies during World War II, but the Cold War period followed afterward.
