Democracy's and Communism's Fight for Control By Tobias Leaman
The Cold War started a few years after World War 2 ended. During the World War, Russia and America put their odds behind them to fight a common enemy.
After the war, the two countries agendas changed from defeating the Nazi's, to spreading their political views. The cold war was not a war of actually sending men into battle, it was a race to become the best at everything, from having the most advanced military to sending people into space.
Through the Truman doctrine, the U.S. started offering aid to countries threatened by communism. Later they joined NATO, an alliance between Canada, Great Britain, France, Portugal, Norway, Belgium, Iceland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and Italy.
In America there was a great fear of Russian spies and anyone that looked suspicious were put on trial and some were sentenced to death.
Russia joined an alliance with it's eastern allies through the Warsaw Pact. The Cold War seemed to escalate as alliances were formed and territories won.
The start of the Cold War was caused by fear not gunshots. The fear was of being out gunned and the fear of an inferior government taking over your country.
