1 Ch 25-1 The Iron Curtain Falls on Europe The Main Idea WWIII??? At the end of World War II, tensions between the Soviet Union and the United States deepened, leading to an era known as the Cold War. Cold War: era of high tension and bitter rivalry known between the U.S. and U.S.S.R. following the end of WWII. Content Statement 19/Learning Goal Analyze the policy of containment the United States followed during the Cold War in response to the spread of communism.
2 Roots of the Cold War(1) Philosophical Differences World War II Conflicts Postwar Conflicts Philosophical differences between the Soviet Union and the United States reached back to the 1920s. Soviet Union: communism, totalitarian dictatorship United States: free-enterprise capitalism, republic Allies during the war, but not truly friends Soviets wanted British and Americans to open a second European front earlier in the war. U.S. atomic bomb plans worried Soviet Union. Soviet spies stole plans for A-bomb. Developed their own The Soviet Union refused to let Eastern Europe hold elections as promised at Yalta. The United States resisted Soviet expansion.
3 The Iron Curtain (2) Western Concerns Stalin wanted to retain political and economic control over Eastern Europe. The Soviets managed to install Communist governments throughout Eastern Europe. Stalin outlawed political parties or newspapers that opposed the Communists. The Soviets jailed or killed some political opponents. The Soviets rigged elections to ensure the success of Communists. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT FOUNDING FATHERS FOUGHT AGAINST Yugoslavia was the one Eastern European nation that was not under the direct control of Stalin and the Soviet Union. Josip Broz Tito, a Communist, refused to take orders from the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union relocated Germans living in Poland and other countries of Eastern Europe. What kind of government did Italy, Germany, Japan have prior to WWII?
7 The Iron Curtain (3) Western Views of the Iron Curtain Winston Churchill attacked the Soviet Union for creating an Iron Curtain. The term reflected Churchill s belief that communism had created a sharp division in Europe. Harry S Truman urged his secretary of state to get tough with the Soviets. Soviet Views of the Iron Curtain Stalin believed that the Iron Curtain was necessary to protect the Soviet Union from western attacks. Stalin used Churchill s words to help persuade his people that the United States and Great Britain were their enemies. He also used this as an excuse to rebuild the military.
8 How did the United States respond to Soviet actions in Europe? (4) Containment George F. Kennan created a policy known as containment. This policy stated that the United States should resist Soviet attempts to expand its power. Containment included economic aid, sanctions, and military force. Truman Doctrine Said that the United States would help people fight against oppressors Truman wanted to send aid to Greece and Turkey to help them fight Soviet pressure. Congress agreed to send millions of dollars to Greece and Turkey. Marshall Plan An aid program to rebuild the economies of European countries to create stable conditions for democracies 17 countries received $13.4 billion dollars in aid. Helped build strong political support in Western Europe with U.S. Western Europe could now afford to buy goods from U.S.
9 Crisis in Berlin (5) With the start of the Cold War, it became clear that the Soviets planned to keep their German zone under Communist control. The British, Americans, and French began to take steps to set up a free, democratic government within their German zones. The western zone eventually became known as the Federal Republic of Germany, or West Germany. The British, Americans, and French also tried to set up a democratic government in West Berlin. The Soviets were not happy with the idea of a Westernstyle government and economy in the middle of the Soviet zone of occupation.
11 Soviets Bloc Traffic In June 1948 the Soviets announced that they would block any road, rail, or river traffic into West Berlin. West Berlin s residents were cut off from food, coal, and other products. West Berlin was not completely cutoff because it had airstrips. The Crisis in Berlin (6) The Berlin Airlift British and American planes began making deliveries to West Berlin. The Berlin Airlift continued for months and months. Finally, the Soviet Union lifted its blockade on May 12, NATO Forms In 1949 the U.S. and 6 other nations joined Belgium, France, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and the U.K. to form NATO. An armed attack against one would be considered an attack against all. Today, 26 countries belong to NATO. CAUSES OF WWI +WWII MILITARISM/ ALLIANCES (Warsaw Pact)
12 Causes of WWI and WWII 1) Militarism: building up of military weapons 2) Imperialism: expanding territorial claims 3) Alliances: WWI: Triple Alliance (Central Powers) Triple Entente (The Allies) WWII: Axis Powers (Japan, Germany, Italy) Allied Powers. Cold War: NATO (U.S), Warsaw Pact (U.S.S.R) 4) Nationalism: putting your nation s interests above interests of all others.
13 Ch 25-2 Healing the Wounds of War The Main Idea Following the end of World War II, U.S. military forces and the rest of the country faced the challenge of returning to life during peacetime. Content Statement 19/Learning Goal: Analyze the policy of containment the United States followed during the Cold War in response to the spread of communism.
14 Life in America after World War II (1) Some experts worried that the postwar drop in industrial needs would hurt the economy. The nearly 12 million men and women who had been serving in the armed forces were returning to civilian life and would need jobs. Often jobs were not available. Women workers, so vital during the war, were pressured to leave their jobs. The Servicemen s Readjustment Act of 1944 was intended to help veterans make the transition to civilian life. The demand for consumer goods rose sharply after the war. Labor unions began to make demands. Racial minorities began to agitate for better opportunities.
15 Life in America after World War II (2) The Servicemen s Readjustment Act of 1944 was better known as the GI Bill. The GI Bill The bill helped veterans transition to civilian life. Provided money for vets to attend college or receive advanced job training Helped arrange for home, farm, or business loans Provided help in finding work as well as a year s worth of unemployment benefits Demand for consumer goods rose sharply. Increased Demand Returning vets built houses, which increased the demand for furniture and appliances. A baby boom began as Americans began having families.
17 Life in America after World War II (3) During the war, the government prevented labor disputes. Labor Unions After the war, unions began to seek the increases in wages that were limited during the war. The number of strikes rose sharply. In 1947, Congress passed the Taft-Hartley Act, which greatly reduced the power of labor unions. Racial Minorities Truman issued Executive Order 9981, which ended segregation in the U.S. armed forces. (1948) Hispanic veterans joined together in the American GI Forum. They worked to gain full access for Hispanic veterans to benefits earned by their service during the war.
18 1946 Congressional Elections Many Democrats compared Truman unfavorably to Roosevelt. Republicans began to attack Truman before the 1946 congressional elections. Inflation was a big issue. Republicans gained a majority in Congress, which made it difficult for Truman to put his programs into place. Win a majority in Congress for first time since Postwar American Politics(4) 1948 Presidential Election Truman s popularity was low and critics didn t think he could win the election. Southern Democrats didn t like Truman s support of civil rights. Truman set off on a whirlwind campaign across the country. Complained of do nothing Congress. Today? Truman won the election. Many thought he had lost Truman put forward his Fair Deal program. Not supported by Congress
19 Truman wins Election of 1948
20 Electoral Map 1948
21 Building a Better World (5) People had a strong desire to understand and prevent the causes of war after World Wars I and II. One result was the establishment of the United Nations (UN). 50 nations met in June 1945 to create the UN Charter. The Charter committed its members to respect fundamental human rights, respect treaties and agreements, and to promote the progress and freedom of all people. Member nations agreed to live in peace. The Charter called for the use of international organizations to promote economic and social advancement.
22 Human Rights The UN established the Commission on Human Rights. In December 1948, the commission presented the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It declared that all human beings are born free and equal. It called for an end to slavery, torture, and inhumane punishment. It demanded a variety of civil rights, including the right to assembly and the right to access the courts. It stated that elementary education should be free and available to all. Trying to Build a Better World (6) Trade and Economic Development At a conference in New Hampshire, leaders agreed to create the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. The World Bank provided loans and grants to countries for the purpose of reducing poverty. The International Monetary Fund promoted orderly financial relationships between countries. It was designed to prevent economic crises and to encourage trade and economic growth. Another international organization, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade set rules and regulations for international trade.
23 Ch 25-3 The Second Red Scare The Main Idea The start of the Cold War and events at home helped trigger a second Red Scare in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Content Statement 20/Learning Goal Explain how the Second Red Scare and McCarthyism reflected Cold War fears in American Society
24 The Growing Fear of Communism (1) Soviet Atomic Weapons Communist China In September 1949 Truman announced that the Soviet Union had detonated an atomic bomb. This was a shock to the nation. Soviets had stolen plans of Atomic bomb from U.S. Truman began to strengthen the nation s military against a possible Soviet nuclear threat. Communists in China had gained nearly full control of the country. The Nationalist government of Chiang Kaishek fled to Taiwan China was in the hands of the Communist Party under the leadership of Mao Zedong. Americans worried that China increased the Communist threat to the United States.
26 Communism in the United States (2) The House Un-American Activities Committee investigated the full range of radical groups in the United States, including Fascists and Communists. Truman created a plan to investigate all federal employees. Those found to be disloyal to the United States were barred from federal employment. The Smith Act made it a crime to call for the overthrow of the U.S. government or belong to an organization that did so. First Amendment restricted because of national security The McCarran Act limited the rights of Communist organizations. Several spy cases in the late 1940s fueled fears of communism.
27 Fighting Communism at Home (3) Investigating Communism Truman and Loyalty The House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) explored the possible Communist influence in the American film industry. The Hollywood Ten refused to answer HUAC questions about their beliefs or those of their colleagues. Served short prison terms. Many others in Hollywood did testify, for if they didn t their names were placed on a blacklist. Truman investigated all federal employees to ensure the loyalty of government officials. Republicans claimed Communists were working the government The investigations turned up little evidence of disloyalty. This investigation made clear that Truman was serious about fighting communism.
28 The Smith Act Truman charged several leaders of the Communist Party in the United States under this act. The act made it a crime to call for the overthrow of the U.S. government. The leaders were convicted and their convictions were upheld in Dennis v. United States. Fighting Communism at Home (4) The McCarran Act This act required Communist organizations to register with the government. It established a special board to investigate Communist involvement. Made it illegal to plan a totalitarian dictatorship Prevented Communists from entering the United States Spy Cases Alger Hiss convicted of being a spy for the Soviets Klaus Fuchs a Manhattan Project scientist who gave atomic bomb information to the Soviets Ethel and Julius Rosenberg convicted of passing secrets to the Soviets and executed
29 Joseph McCarthy and the Second Red Scare (5) Joseph McCarthy was a senator who claimed that there were 205 known Communists working for the U.S. Department of State. Truman dismissed him as a ballyhoo artist. A political cartoonist dubbed McCarthy s tactic of spreading fear and making baseless charges McCarthyism. McCarthy s claims were rarely backed up with any evidence, but this didn t stop him from gaining a reputation as being the nation s top Communist fighter. McCarthy succeeded when he made a special effort to defeat Maryland senator Millard Tydings. McCarthyism spread beyond the Senate into other branches of government, into universities, into labor unions, and into private businesses.
30 McCarthy s Fall (6) McCarthy continued his campaign from the Senate but became increasingly wild in his accusations. In 1952 he began to go after fellow Republicans. In 1954 he attacked the U.S. Army, claiming that it was protecting Communists. After hearing over Communism in Army, McCarthy is exposed as a fraud. The public came to view McCarthy s tactics as unfair. The fear of communism remained, but Senator McCarthy and McCarthyism faded away.
31 Ch 25-4 The Korean War The Main Idea Cold War tensions finally erupted in a shooting war in The United States confronted a difficult challenge defending freedom halfway around the world. Content Statement 21/Learning Goal: Analyze how the Cold War and conflict in Korea influenced domestic and international politics between WWII and 1992
32 Causes of WWI and WWII 1) Militarism: building up of military weapons 2) Imperialism: expanding territorial claims 3) Alliances: WWI: Triple Alliance (Central Powers) Triple Entente (The Allies) WWII: Axis Powers (Japan, Germany, Italy) Allied Powers. Cold War: NATO (U.S), Warsaw Pact (U.S.S.R) 4) Nationalism: putting your nation s interests above interests of all others.
33 Korea before the War (1) After World War II, Japanese-occupied Korea was temporarily divided into northern and southern parts. Much like Germany was divided and controlled. The Soviet Union controlled Korea north of the 38 th parallel. The United States would be in charge of Korea south of the 38 th parallel. The Soviet Union established a communist government in North Korea. North Korea called itself the Democratic People s Republic of Korea. Its first leader was Kim Il Sung. In South Korea, the United States promoted a democratic system. The Republic of Korea was led by president Syngman Rhee.
35 The Start of the Korean War (2) North Korea invaded South Korea on June 25, Most leaders in the United States were surprised by this attack. American troops stationed in South Korea since WW II had recently completed their withdrawal. The United States was not well prepared to fight in Korea; however, the decision to fight was made quickly. Truman decided that the United States would take a stand against Communist aggression in Korea. Had to show that U.S. would support countries being attacked by communists. The United Nations Security Council voted unanimously in favor of the use of force in Korea. Korea armed with U.S.S.R. artillery. China promises reinforcements.
36 The Start of the Korean War (3) Role of the United States Role of the United Nations South Korea was where the United States had to take a stand against Communist aggression. Truman ordered American naval and air forces to support Korean ground troops. Truman asked the United Nations to approve the use of force to stop the North Korean invasion. The UN Security Council supported the use of force in Korea. Truman sent ground troops to Korea. The troops sent to Korea were to be a United Nations force. Instead of calling this a war, the whole effort was referred to as a UN police action. U.S. never officially declares war.
37 The Inchon Landing Combat in the Korean War (4) UN forces made an amphibious landing behind North Korean lines at the port city of Inchon. MacArthur s surprise attack worked beautifully. The September 1950 invasion at Inchon was a key victory for UN forces. North Korea on the Run Offensives from Inchon and Pusan resulted in the destruction or surrender of huge numbers of North Korean troops. By October 1950 all of South Korea was back in UN hands. Keep going? UN Forces Retreat UN forces had begun to move into North Korea, but the when 260,000 Chinese troops joined the North Koreans the UN began to retreat. UN forces retreated all the way back to Seoul. It was the longest fallback in U.S. military history.
39 Korea June 1950
40 Korea Sept. 1950
41 Korea Oct 1950: Should UN keep going?
42 Nov 1950-Jan 1951: Here come Chinese reinforcements.
43 General MacArthur Is Fired (5) MacArthur said that the UN faced a choice between defeat by the Chinese or a major war with them. MacArthur wanted to expand the war by bombing the Chinese mainland, perhaps even with atomic weapons. Lieutenant General Matthew Ridgway stopped the Chinese onslaught and pushed them back to the 38 th parallel without needing to expand the war or use atomic weapons. MacArthur was wrong. MacArthur disagreed with President Truman about the direction of the fighting and challenged the authority of the president. Made public statements critical of Truman. Truman fired MacArthur. Many Americans were outraged at the firing of MacArthur.
44 Negotiating for Peace In July 1951 peace talks began. One major obstacle was the location of the boundary between the Koreas. Meanwhile battles such as Bloody Ridge and Heartbreak Ridge continued, inflicting heavy casualties on both sides. In October 1951 peace talks stalled over prisoners of war. Negotiators in Panmunjom continued to argue over the details of a peace agreement throughout Fighting Ends in Korea (6) Events of 1953 In 1952 Dwight D. Eisenhower who promised to end the war was elected president. Fighting remained deadly in the final two months of the war, UN forces lost 57,000 men and the Communists lost 100,000. An armistice agreement was finally reached on July 27, The Korean War left the map of Korea looking much as it had in The human costs were huge.
