Cold War - Page Text Content


FC: The Cold War | By Thomas and Tayler

1: Introduction | F | ND | T | The two sides of the war were the US and the USSR | The Cold War started in 1945 and ended around 1991. | The U.S. disliked the USSR because they were spreading communism. The USSR disliked the U.S. because the U.S. was trying to stop them from spreading communism. | A map highlighting the U.S. and the USSR.

2: The Marshall Plan was the U.S's attempt to stop communism from spreading by simply handing money over to areas that might convert. | The Europeans thought that the Marshall plan was U.S.'s attempt to "buy" Europe but either way it helped rebuild war torn Europe. | The Truman Doctrine was kind of like the Marshall Plan but it was when the U.S. did more than just give money to help support. | The Truman Doctrine was specifically to handle countries that were about the convert to communism.

3: President Harry Truman speaking about the Truman Doctrine.

4: NATO was the alliance with Europe and U.S. | The main reason for this pact was just security. They all agreed to give help in any time of need kind of just like the Alliances in WWI. | The Warsaw Pact was an Alliance between USSR and European countries | The Warsaw pact was mainly just the same as the NATO just a "friendship" for security.

5: NATO's logo

6: "This day I will marry my friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with, love." | A picture representing how quickly weapons were being developed and how the other side was trying to develop weapons at the same rate.

7: The Arms Race was when the U.S. and the USSR were "racing" to build up their weapons. | Both of the countries thought that the weapons would prevent war. | The would build up everything from guns to nuclear weapons to atomic bombs. | MAD - Mutually Assured Destruction He who shoots first dies last. This meant that if one country attacked the other, then the other country would attack them back. | The Space race was a "race" to who could go to space first. The USSR "won" by launching the Sputnik I which was the very first human made satellite to orbit earth. | The launch of the Sputnik I brought more fears to the U.S. public. They thought that we were far behind the USSR in weapons and technology.

8: Protesters of the Vietnam War

9: In 1964 there were rising conflicts of communism spreading to South Vietnam, so the U.S. sent troops there to support them. | North Vietnam was trying to spread communism to South Vietnam, and the U.S. did not want that to happen. | There wasn't really a winner in the war, but North Vietnam technically won because they achieved their goal of spreading communism to South Vietnam. | The Vietnam war linked to the Cold War because the U.S. was trying to stop communism. | It also ties into the Truman Doctrine because the U.S. sent help and money to a threatened country which in this case was South Vietnam.

10: A silhouette of Gary (left) and Ash (right).

11: This rivalry is between Gary and Ash who are from the TV show Pokemon. | They compare to the Arms Race because in the TV show they always try to get better Pokemon than each other at a fast rate. | The rivalry contrasts because Gary and Ash are not always hostile toward each other and they are obviously not trying to kill each other. | Their rivalry also contrasts because they directly battle each other with Pokemon every once in a while, and the U.S. and USSR never really did battle directly with each other.
