Storyboard Text

  • Policy of Containment is the policy of America to stop the spread of communism throughout the world.
  • The Truman Doctrine was created as a direct, non-military counter to Soviet expansion. It gave financial aid and implied protection for countries at threat of communism. This eventually lead to the formation of NATO.
  • The Marshall Plan gave billions of dollars in aid to Western Europe to help the rebuilding process, which would also indirectly help stop the spread of communism from Eastern Europe.
  • The formation of NATO was the response to Soviet Union's attempt at spreading communism beyond their borders.
  • The Communist North Korea invaded South Korea, which was not communist at the time. America didn't want South Korea to fall to communism, so they intervened. A peace treaty was signed and the divide was kept where it originally was.
  • The Policy of Containment aimed to not fight a war with the Soviet Union, but rather to confine communism and the Soviet Union to their boundaries. The doctrine led directly to the Vietnam war.
