On Understanding the Cold War

I was born on the tail end of the Cold War, during Reagan's first term. So growing up during those years I have pretty firm memories of what the Cold War was like during that time. I remember the threats. I remember the paranoia. I remember the constant fear.

And the Cold War lasted for quite a long time - 50 years, within the lifetimes of 3 generations.

So I can't help but wonder what those who have grown up not knowing the Cold War think when they watch movies and shows referencing the Cold War. Can they have a firm grasp of what it was like? Does the War on Terror provide an adequate analog to them so they can understand the movies and other works from the Cold War?

Just something I've thought about.
