Western Bloc

The  Western Bloc  during the Cold War refers to the United States and NATO against the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact . The latter were referred to the Eastern Bloc . The governors and press of the Western Bloc were more often referred to as the ” Free World ” or the ” Western world “, while the Eastern Bloc was often called the ” Communist World “.

During the Cold War the non- Communist countries in Europe were called ” Western Europe “, but within the framework of the modern times it is a purely geographical term.  quote needed  ]
