January 28 th 2008 Stalin’s attack on Eastern Europe was in response to the Marshall Plan. 1947- United States decided to reindustrialize Germany – the secretary of state of the US stated that the restoration of Europe meant the restoration of Germany as well. The US became committed to restoring Germany however the USSR was not pleased. The US and its Allies unified their parts of Germany, funneled a lot of money into western Germany under the Marshall plan. That for Stalin was the ringing on of the betrayal of former agreements and a threat because the Soviet Union has no money and cannot compete. Stalin realizes that the USSR is not even a secondary power to the US but a tertiary power, but he knows that the Soviet Union does not have the money and could not afford to industrialize Eastern Germany and Europe, and hence seals it off from the rest of the world.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
