Winston Churchill was a british politician and army officer. Prime minister of the U.K. from
1940-1945. Americans would trust was he has to say about the Soviets because of his
experience in the army and because of his authority as the prime minister.
Does Truman present American policy as offensive or defensive? What
words or phrases does Truman use to present policy this way?
Record your first hypothesis:
Who was primarily responsible for the Cold War - the
United States or the Soviet Union?
Churchill claimed that the Soviet Union just wanted the fruits of war and not to start a war.
Truman believed Greece needed American aid because of the communist violence
happening and the desire to be free from it.
What does Truman mean when he claims, “Should we fail to aid Greece and Turkey
in this fateful hour, the effect will be far reaching to the West as well as to the East”?
