2 What is the Cold War? The Cold War is the conflict that existed between the United States and Soviet Union from 1945 to It is called cold because the two sides never went to war directly with each other.
3 If the US & USSR Never Fought Directly, why do we call it a war? Many wars WERE fought between Communists (supported by the USSR) and anti-communists (supported by US) The US and USSR competed for power by using their political, economic, and military clout throughout the world Both sides felt their national survival was at stake
4 Presentation Outline I. Significance of the Cold War II. Causes of the Cold War III. Historical Background IV. Events of the Cold War
5 Part I. The Significance of the Cold War Why should we study the Cold War?
6 How has the Cold War affected US History? Brought the world to the brink of nuclear destruction Was the direct cause of the US wars in Korea and Vietnam Led to the 1969 moon landing Is largely responsible for the US national debt Shaped the post-world War II era
7 1. To the brink of nuclear The US & the USSR raced to be ahead of one another in atomic warfare, building thousands of nuclear weapons much more powerful than those used in World War II. destruction
8 2. War in Korea & Vietnam The US fought 2 wars to contain the spread of Communism. The spread of Communism was seen as a growth in the power of the USSR. Over 100,000 Americans were killed.
9 3. To the Moon The Soviets and Americans competed to develop new technology. When the Soviets were the first to launch a satellite, the US raced to be the first to the moon.
10 4. We re still paying... The Soviet Union collapsed in reason is that it could not keep up with the US in defense spending. The US went heavily into debt to beat the Soviets.
11 5. Shaping the World Why is there a North and South Korea? Why was there an East and West Germany? Why did the US support some dictators and oppose some free elections? Answer: Cold War
12 Part II: What Caused the Cold War? The US and USSR fought against a common enemy in World War II. The alliance did not last long. What caused the US and USSR to turn from allies to enemies?
14 Cause #1: Mistrust The 2 nations simply did not trust each other. Each felt that the other was out to undermine them. When disagreement arose, both sides assumed the worst. For example: The Soviets remembered the attempt by US forces to overthrow the Communist Government during their civil war. The US felt that Stalin had broken promises about free elections in Eastern Europe after World War II.
15 Cause #2: Competition for Power The US and USSR emerged from World War II as the most powerful nations in the world. Both wanted to create a new world order that would protect their interests. Often, the 2 sides would disagree on what that should be. This produced conflict.
16 Cause #3: Competing Ideologies An ideology is a way of looking at the world or a system of beliefs. The Soviets had a communist dictatorship and opposed capitalism. The Americans had a capitalist democracy and opposed communism.
17 IN DEPTH: Why did the United States Hate & Fear Communism? A) What is communism? B) Why did the US feel threatened by it?
18 Communism: What is It? Karl Marx wrote the Communist Manifesto in In this book, he explained his ideas on Communism. This became a model for the Communist governments of the 1900s.
19 Quotes from Marx: Society as a whole is more and more splitting into two great hostile camps...:bourgeoisie (the class of modern Capitalists, owners of the means of...production and employers of wage labor) and Proletariat (the class of modern wage laborers who, having no means of production of their own, are reduced to selling their labor in order to live)
20 The theory of Communists may be summed up in a single sentence: Abolition of private property.
21 Communism abolishes all eternal truths, it abolishes all religion
22 The Communists openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling class tremble at a Communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. WORKING MEN OF ALL COUNTRIES UNITE
23 Summary Communism favors collective or community ownership of property The government (acting for the people) makes economic decisions From each according to his capacity, to each according to his needs. Communists seek to overthrow existing governments in revolutions.
24 And why did Americans dislike it? Many felt Communism discouraged hard work and promoted laziness Communism took away personal freedom and individuality Communism was opposed to religion The USSR was a brutal dictatorship-- people equated Communism with dictatorship
25 Part III. Historical Background A. The Russian Revolution B. USSR ( ) C. Post-War Disagreement
26 A. Russian Revolution Until 1917, Russia has been ruled by a Czar (King-like dictator) In 1917, Russia experienced 2 revolutions After a brief Republican government, the Communists took control in October led by Vladimir Lenin (left)
27 A Civil War Erupts Russia fought a Civil War from On one side were the Communists or RED Russians (also called Bolsheviks). On the other side were the anti-communist White Russians (nothing to do with race) A number of nations sent troops to the aid of the White Russians, including the USA. The Communists won the war and firmly established the Communist dictatorship that would last 70 years.
28 B. USSR ( ) The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was created in It consisted of Russia and eventually 14 other large Republics It spanned 11 time zones and was the world s largest nation.
29 Stalin Comes To Power The US did not establish relations with the USSR until 1933 After Lenin s death, Joseph Stalin was able to take control of the USSR. Stalin ruthlessly created a totalitarian regime.
30 C. Post-War Disagreement The challenge: the US, USSR, and Britain would have to lay the foundation for a stable and peaceful post-war world.
31 What did the US Want? The US wanted a democratic world, sharing American values. The US wanted a community of nations committed to free trade.
32 What did the USSR want? Stalin wanted security. Believing that the west was a threat to any Communist nation, he sought a buffer zone. This meant control of Eastern Europe.
33 Alliance Fades Into Conflict Why didn t Truman tell Stalin when he would use the atomic bomb on Japan? Who should control the lands conquered during World War II? [Germany, Eastern Europe, Japan, Korea, etc.] Did Stalin promise free elections in Eastern Europe and then break his promise?
34 Summary The World War II alliance between the US and the USSR should really be seen as a temporary arrangement to defeat a common enemy. Deep differences in politics, economics, and history divided the nations. Disagreement over what the post-war world should look like split the alliance into to competing camps. They would compete for 40 years.
36 Part IV. Significant Events
37 Feb Yalta Agreement The Big 3 Meet at Yalta The USSR agrees to enter the war in the Pacific. Stalin demands control of Eastern Europe but makes vague promises to allow free elections in the future.
39 Feb Early Tensions By 1946, Stalin had declared that there would be no lasting peace with capitalism. At this time, he controlled Eastern Europe and refused to hold elections in Poland. Truman, mindful of Munich, took a tough approach to dealings with Stalin.
40 1946 Kennan s Telegram Early in 1946, Soviet expert George Kennan sent a sixteen page telegram from Moscow to Washington. He argued that the Soviets were fanatical and that the US must act firmly to CONTAIN Soviet aggression and influence. Containment became the overall US policy toward the USSR.
41 1946: Iron Curtain Speech Former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill gave a speech at a small college in Missouri in which he warned of growing Soviet Power. Some consider this speech a declaration of Cold War pitting East vs. West.
42 1947: Truman Doctrine In the Spring of 1947, it looked as though Communist forces may overthrow the governments of Greece and Turkey. Truman asked congress for aid packages to prevent this from happening. This becomes known as the Truman Doctrine.
43 Truman Doctrine I believe that it must be the policy of the United States to support free peoples who are resisting subjugation by armed minorities or by outside pressures. --Harry S. Truman, 1947
44 1947: Marshall Plan Convinced that all of Europe was susceptible to Communism because of the economies were in shambles, the US pledged a massive aid program totaling $17 Billion. It worked: Western Europe Recovered and Communism did not take root.
45 CONTAINMENT US Cold War policy in one word.
46 1948: Berlin Airlift Germany had been split in half. Berlin had also been split, but was in East Germany. The West refused to give up West Berlin. Stalin tried to force surrender by blockading West Berlin. The West refused to give up and airlifted supplies to West Berlin.
48 1949: NATO Formed The North Atlantic Treaty Organization consisting of the US, Canada, and Western Europe becomes the first peace-time alliance in US history. The USSR counters with the Warsaw Pact in 1955.
49 1949: Year of Fear Nationalists lose the Civil War in China. Soviets explode their first atomic bomb.
50 1949: NSC-68 Top-secret report suggests that the USSR is bent on World domination and that the US should quadruple its defense spending. The US follows this policy.
51 Korean War
52 Key Events June, 1950 North Korea (communist) invades South Korea (non-communist) UN supports a police action to protect South Korea Douglas MacArthur, UN commander, makes a brilliant landing at Inchon and pushes the North Koreans back
54 Key Events (continued) MacArthur continues to push North, provoking China s entry into the war. A bloody stalemate develops Truman wants a negotiated peace, MacArthur says there is no substitute for victory and begins to openly criticize Truman. Truman fires MacArthur.
55 Key Events (continued) A cease-fire is agreed to in 1953 which places the border near the 38 th parallel (as it was before the war). 40,000+ Americans and hundreds of thousands of Koreans and Chinese are killed.
56 Conclusion The Cold War continued until the late 1980s when Communism collapsed in Eastern Europe. Events that we will study in the coming weeks include: Sputnik & Space Race Cuban Missile Crisis Vietnam War Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan
