Truman doctrine The Truman Doctrine was an international relations policy set forth by the U.S. President Harry Truman in a speech on March 12, 1947, which stated that the U.S. would support Greece and Turkey with economic and military aid to prevent them from falling into the Soviet sphere. 400 million was sent to Greece and Turkey
Marshall plan The Marshall Plan was the American initiative to aid Europe, in which the United States gave economic support to help rebuild European economies after the end of World War II in order to prevent the spread of Soviet Communism. 385 million was sent to the UK
Motives and methods behind the Truman doctrine and Marshall plan Harry Truman and George Marshall believe by giving money and military aid to the war torn european countries it would contain them from expansionism and would keep them on Americas side and away from the soviet union but doing this was a big step towards brinkmanship because it raised the tensions between the soviet union and USA.
To what extent did ideological conflict affect international relations after WWII with reference to the Truman doctrine and Marshall plan The Truman doctrine and Marshall plan upset the soviet union because it made some of its closest neighbors turn against them. This was a big step in the cold war and lead it even closer to brinkmanship.
