Causes of the Cold War By: Katie Brandsema
The Cold War occurred immediately after the end of World War II. This was between the United States and the Soviet Union from differing ideas.
The US wanted to implement the Marshall Plan. The plan was a way to recover from the war that included trying to help Europe's economy and stopping the spread of Communism.
The Soviet Union wanted nothing to do with the Marshall Plan. They rewarded those who disapproved of it and punished those who rejected their aid and joined the plan.
The US and the Soviet Union also had very competitive attitudes towards one another. They raced to space, built up their defenses, and made many technological and scientific advances.
The Cold War only truly ended when the Soviet Union dissolved. Though tensions were eventually easing between the two powers, the end of the Cold War was because of the Soviet Union dissolving.
