  • How the Cold War Came to Be By: Taylor Shambaugh
  • Harry S. Truman U.S. President
  • The Cold War began in 1947, and was between the United States and the Soviet Union. This was not a war, but rather two countries at the brink of war.
  • Joseph Stalin Soviet Union Leader
  • Both were trying to surpass the other in terms of technology, military, and the spreading of their political beliefs. The two countries were incredibly distrustful of each other, which only intensified the situation.
  • The United States was a democratic nation that supported capitalism.
  • The Soviet Union was a Communist nation that loathed capitalism and promoted state-governed markets.
  • The United States and the Soviet Union were anxiously awaiting an attack from each other.
  • Additionally, they both were trying to increase their influence throughout the world, while simultaneously preventing the other from getting a better foothold.
  • Propaganda was produced from both sides that effectively created a wedge between the Soviet Union and the United States. Furthermore, the two countries vastly different views created the tension which contributed to the decades long Cold War.
