5 George Marshall & Winston Churchill Marshall Plan On June 5, 1947, George C. Marshall proposed a plan to help reconstruct the battle ridden areas of Europe economically. The U.S. invited the Soviet Union to help with this plan, but they declined. The U.S. along with 16 other Western European Nations formed the program. Although the program was directed to help fight the disaster ridden areas, the plan also hurt the Soviet Union. By pouring million of dollars into European nations, the U.S. not only helped those countries prosper but also gained allies who were near the Soviet Union’s territory. The Marshall Plan heightened the friction between the United States and the Soviet Union The Iron Curtain In a speech on March 5, 1946, Winston Churchill announced that “an iron curtain had descended across the continent”. The term “iron curtain” has been used since to describe the dividedness between communist and democratic countries. Start Quiz Begin Lesson Introduction

6 Communist Containment Truman Doctrine In 1947, Harry Truman asked Congress to support his plan to give $400,000 dollars in aid to “support free peoples who are resisting attempted subjugation by armed minorities or by outside pressures“. This money went to support countries like Turkey and Greece, who the U.S. didn’t want to fall to communist regimes. Start Quiz Begin Lesson Introduction

7 Communist Containment Berlin Blockade Because of the Potsdam Agreement, Germany was split into four sections, and the city of Berlin was split up additionally within the Soviet controlled section of the country. From June 1948 to May 1949 the Soviet Union cut off all supply routes to the Western controlled parts of Berlin. To overcome the lack of supplies, the U.S. began an airlift to provide the city with the needed provisions. Berlin Start Quiz Begin Lesson Introduction

8 Communist Containment Cuban Missile Crisis In 1962, the Soviet Union, led by Nikita Krushchev, began to store medium and intermediate ballistic missiles in Cuba. For the United States, these missiles were too close to the country and many feared the Soviet Union would launch an attack. President Kennedy wanted these missiles and all other weapons removed from Cuba. After many tense days, the Soviet Union backed down and removed the missiles. The Cuban Missile Crisis was the most intense confrontation of the Cold War. Start Quiz Begin Lesson Introduction WARNING! This is the end of the lesson.
