Transcript of ANNOTATED TIMELINE: COLD WAR
Nations Created April 25 The U.N. was created after WWII. They brouhght benefits to people all over the globe. The U.N's main goal was to create peace and prevent another world war. Divison of Germany After Germany lost the war it was forced to separate and give up land to the allies. As you can see here the four major allied powers split up germany. The allies looked after their territories. The USSR took advantage of germany; resulting in a conflict between ameriaca and the USSR. The "Iron Curtain" Truman Doctrine Stalin isolated Russia from the rest of Europe.
It kept the world uneasy, and it made Americas
relationship with the USSR even more volatile than it already was. The curtain essentially separated Europe into two worlds. President truman said that america
would supply aid to greece and turkey. He made the decison to avoid the two countries from falling into soviet control. It was the first official physical act caused by the cold war. National Security Act The National Security Act reorganized the U.S. Armed Forces, foreign policy, and Intelligence Community apparatus in the aftermath of World War II. The Act merged the Department of War and the Department of the Navy into the National Military Establishment Truman signing the national security act in the oval office Berlin Blockade The Berlin Blockade was one of the first major international crisises of the Cold War. The Soviet Union blocked the western alllies rails, roads and canal access to sectors of Berlin under western allied control. To peacefully solve the situation, the United States Air Force and the United Kingdom's Royal Air Force flew over 200,000 flights in one year, providing thousands of tons of daily necessities such as fuel and food to the people of Berlin. The Chinese Civil War was a civil war fought between the KMT or Chinese Nationalist Party, the governing party of the Republic of China, and the Communist Party of China. The war was one over ideology and governmental structure (democracy or communist). The communist party of China, backed by the soviet union, won the war and kicked the nationalist party out of china and into Taiwan. People's Liberation Army attacking government defensive positions in Shangtang Collapse of Nationalist China H. BOMB The H. Bomb Nuclear weapons are considered weapons of mass destruction, and they have been a major focus of international relations policy since their creation. When America dropped two nuclear bombs on Japan, the whole world was taken by storm. Japan was forced to surrender and technology and warfare was changed forever. Subversives or not??? During the cold war, there was a huge fear of communism in America. The FBI searched for subversives everywhere, not only in america, because the American government felt threatened. MaCarthur FIRED! Korean Conflict The Korean War was between the Republic of Korea (supported by the United States of America) and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (supported by the People's Republic of China, with military and material aid from the USSR). The war gained nothing and a large amount of american solidiers, especially marines were killed. Some of the military decisions made by MacArthur were accused of accelerating the crisis of the Korean war. American losses, particularly marines, reached an unacceptable amount. Between the loss of lives and Macarthur's loud mouth TRuman was fed up. He fired him on March 10, 1951.
