  • Causes of the World War By - Angela Harrison
  • While the Cold War wasn’t an actual war, the United States and Soviet Union were always on the brink of warfare. The two countries never directly attacked each other. Both of these countries were butting heads so often to see who could do something remarkable before the other.
  • The United States didn’t like the spread of Communism, they attempted to help anyone who was close to the brink of falling to Communism. All of this was stated in the Marshall Plan. This caused the Soviets to make their own version of the Marshall Plan, called Comecon, which provided aid to Eastern Europeans who denied the U.S. aid.
  • The U.S. joined NATO, an alliance with Canada, Great Britain, France, Portugal, Norway, Belgium, Iceland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and Italy. Later, the Soviet Union formed Warsaw Pact, an alliance with Eastern allies, Yugoslavia, Albania, East Germany, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, and Romania.

  • The Cold War lasted for more than 40 years and ended with the Soviet Union and the United States agreeing to calm down with their nuclear arms race. The Cold War ended for real when the Soviet Union broke apart in 1991.
