Nostalgic narratives of the 1950s obscure a history of postwar childhood that has more in common with the war years and the sixties, when children were mobilized to fight the Cold War both at home and abroad. Little Cold Warriors illustrates the many ways children and ideas about childhood served the demands of the Cold War.
