between the two wars is the strategy of trying to persuade the ‘neutral’ countries to lean in their own side. Such as in the Cold War, during the Berlin Airlift the U.S. organized a massive airlift for nearly a year to send food, clothing, coal, ect. to prevent Berlin from turning into a communist country. Then in World War II the Lend-Lease Act was put in place, which was authorized by Franklin D. Roosevelt to give military supplies to any nation he deemed “vital to the defense of the U.S.”, which payments will be settled after the war. Then the two war time eras had a similarity in having a competition on which country can develop the best technology. An example, is when in World War II President Franklin D. Roosevelt started the Manhattan Project due to scientists Albert Einstein and Enrico Fermi warned President Roosevelt in a letter stating that Germany was working on building a bomb through nuclear fission. This started the commencement of the race of advancement in technology. Then in Cold War the Soviet Union was progressing faster than the United States by launching the first ever unmanned artificial satellite, which this was called the Sputnik. This marked the commencement of the “Space Race”. The two wars share a lot of similarities that displays a connection on how the United States had a similar reaction to similar problems in the past.

    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.
