History 12: Monday, 16 May

Today we finished the Cold War PowerPoint discussion.  We reviewed the causes and events that caused confrontation right after the Second World War.  We also looked at the Truman Doctrine and the MARSHALL Plan (the best plan, ever).  Next, we introduced the formation of NATO and NSC 68 to highlight the military component of this triple play (Truman Doctrine is the diplomatic component and the Marshall Plan is the economic component). 

For Wednesday, please write a one page double-spaced paragraph to summarize the three elements of the American reaction to the new reality of the bipolar post-WW2 world.
