Origins of the Cold War

 

When preparing the Cold War topic, don't........

Talk about long term and short term causes

  1. the result would be to take you back to 1917 at the beginning of your talk with the danger that you will get to the Truman Doctrine only half way through it. It's important to say at some stage that the roots go back a long way, of course. Probably best in the section on ideological origins..."For many , the Cold War was an ideological conflict and the origins of this go back to 1917...."

  2. Prepare to give a narrative based talk

  3. Get bogged down describing individual events

  4. Go too far into the Cold War itself. The term was used in the early 1950s (at least) to describe what had emerged in the late 1940s

  5. Introduce orthodox view, revisionist view, post revisionist...... and then fail to discuss them properly

When preparing the Cold War topic, don't forget:

Agreements/Disagreements during WWII

Yalta

Potsdam

Communist takeovers in E Europe

Iron Curtain

Truman Doctrine

Marshall Plan

Cominform

Comecon

Berlin

NATO

Bomb

Western personalities:

Roosevelt

Truman

Marshall

Kennan

Churchill

Soviet personalities:
