Part II: Essay ( 20pts)Origins of the Cold WarThe Cold War period took place from 1945 to 1985 which was a result of distrust and misunderstanding between the Russia and the United States of America.This distrust never actually resulted any physical war between the twosuperpowers but they came very close on several occasions.The Cold War was a result of many different events and factorsincluding the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, the Potsdam Conference of1945, the differences ideology , the 'Ironcurtain' speech and Marshall Aid. Through looking at these we are ableto comprehend the main reasons behind the development of the Cold War.As we know the main conflict between bother the country’s was mainly based on the ideology of Capitalism and Communism ,they seen each other as antithetical, it can be argued that the Cold War began when Communism began, in 1917 with the Russian Revolution. in early 1920s, when Lenin and his Bolsheviks consolidated their power in Russia and tried to spread Communism to the West of Europe with the help of Germany “hitler”—although they saw successjust for a shot period of time, being defeated by the Poles in the Polish-Soviet War (1919-1921).
As Hitler and Joseph Stalin reached to an agreement to help each other due to same ideology, but later Russia betrayed Germany in 1941, finished the war on the Allied side, but the tensions between the victorious Western Powers and the Russia were already in evidence. The USSR was gobbling up the countries East of Germany, and part of Germany itself, which made the Americansand British somewhat hesitant. The British feared of Soviet presence in Europe and the Americans wanted a free and open Germany which would become a large market for its products. The Soviets stood in the way of both countries .Finally, probably the latest starting date and cause for the Cold War that's been argued is 1947,the year in which the Soviets acquired the knowledge to make nuclear weapons. Because the ColdWar is so heavily wrapped up into nuclear technology—and technology in general—some will argue that it was caused by the Soviet challenge to American nuclear power, which had been demonstrated at Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of World War IITo conclude the origins of the Cold War stem from as far back as theBolshevik Revolution of 1917 right up to as far as the Berlin Blockadeof 1949. Ultimately it was America's paranoia of communism spreadingto her own country and Russia's attitude of 'never again', never againwould they be invaded by Germany as they had been devastated by bothWorld Wars.
