\r\n Deterrence theory gained increased fame as a military strategy during the Cold War with regard to the use of nuclear weapons. It took on a unique Idea during this time as an lesser nuclear force, by virtue of its extreme destructive power, could discourage a more powerful adversary, provided that this force could be preserved against destruction by a surprise attack. Deterrence is a strategy intended to Prevent an adversary from taking an action not yet started, or to dissuade them from doing something that another state desires.
