"Militarism is often referred to as the arms race. The build up of rival alliances was accompanied by an armaments race between the two blocs. Each side believed that it was essential to build up their armies and their stockpile of weapons so as to be stronger than the other side. This build up heightened the fear and suspicion between the two blocs, with neither being able to stop for fear the other side would become stronger."
