6 1945 — A Critical YearWRITE THIS DOWN!As the end of World War II approached, relations between the Communist Soviet Union and its wartime allies, the United States and Great Britain, grew increasingly tense.At a meeting at Yalta in February, Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin agreed on the postwar division of Germany but disagreed on the future of Poland.In April 1945, representatives of 50 countries, including the United States, adopted the charter for the United Nations, an organization dedicated to cooperation in solving international problems.On April 12, Roosevelt died unexpectedly, making Vice President Truman the new President.Truman continued Roosevelt’s negotiations with Stalin at the Potsdam Conference in July.At Potsdam Conference (1945) Truman and Stalin disagree over the future of Poland.
7 Conflicting Goals American Goals Soviet Goals WRITE THIS DOWN!American GoalsWanted conquered European nations to experience the democracy and economic opportunity that the United States had fought for during the warWanted to develop strong capitalist democracies, which would provide good markets for American productsSoviet GoalsWanted to rebuild Europe in ways that would help the Soviet Union recover from the huge losses it suffered during the warEstablished satellite nations, countries subject to Soviet domination and sympathetic to Soviet goalsWanted to spread communism throughout the world
8 Soviets Tighten Their Hold Communist Expansion in Eastern EuropeAlbania and Bulgaria: Communists secure control by silencing opposition in Albania; Soviet troops seize Bulgaria.Czechoslovakia: Although it desperately tried to remain democratic, Czechoslovakia became a Soviet satellite nation in 1948.Hungary and Romania: By arresting anti-Communist leaders in Hungary and forcing the appointment of a Communist prime minister in Romania, Communists achieved power in both nations.East Germany: To make sure Germany could not threaten his nation again, Stalin established a totalitarian government, naming the state the German Democratic Republic.Finland and Yugoslavia: Both countries maintained their independence from Soviet control – Finland, by signing a treaty of cooperation, and Yugoslavia, by following the leadership of Tito.
9 The Iron CurtainWRITE THIS DOWN!Churchill coined the phrase iron curtain to describe the divisions between Communist and capitalist nations in Europe.
10 ContainmentThe competition between the United States and the Soviet Union for world influence came to be known as the Cold War.The American policy of containment accepted the fact that Eastern Europe was under Communist control, but sought to prevent Communist governments from forming elsewhere in the world.The Truman Doctrine, which is a policy of containment, stated that the United States would support free peoples who resist attempted conquest.The Truman Doctrine was first applied in the cases of Greece and Turkey.WRITE THIS DOWN!
