I made the decision to drop the atomic bomb, but I also became known for the
Marshall Plan and Doctrine of Containment.
I began the Cold War in Europe by creating the Communist Bloc. I also stole atomic
secrets for the United States and built my own bomb, thus escalating tension in the
early Cold War.
My administration created the idea of brinkmanship—going to the brink of nuclear
war to achieve our aims.
My policies were designed to give more personal and economic freedom to people in
the Soviet Union. I had good relations with many leaders in the Western Bloc.
I was good friends with the leaders of the Soviet Union and the United States
and helped end the Cold War by bringing them together.
I pulled missiles out of Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and I prevented
the Cold War from escalating into a nuclear war.
