Stalin envisioned the city of Berlin under soviet control but his vision would never come to fruition. This is a great example of the Cold War because of its antagonizing approach. America didn’t want Berlin to turn over to communism and she had too much pride to evacuate her capitalist ideals, so we flew over two hundred thousand flights to hold our ground and our option. No blood shed, but still none than less a battle. And lastly, implosion of the Soviet Union.

Therefore a complete act of continuing the war efforts, than to slowly end the long going
The relationships between United States and Soviet Union had embittered long before the beginning of the Cold War. In 1939, it seemed “highly improbable” (Garthoff, 29) that the two nations would form an alliance due to Stalin’s decision to forge a non-aggression pact with Nazi Germany, to ensure security of his own country, in August of 1939 (Revelations from the Russian Archives). Stalin’s decision to form an alliance with Germany deeply affected the relationships between the two countries as Nazi Germany was one of U. S’s enemy during World War II. Additionally, the ways in which Stalin tried to establish security for his own country portrayed him as a potential threat amongst the Allies, especially the U.S and Great Britain. Furthermore,
The first reason being that the Soviet Union leader, Joseph Stalin, refused to join the United Nations for a long time. The second reason behind the growing tensions was the delay of the Normandy invasions on D-Day by the United States and Great Britain. Joseph Stalin believed that the delays were a part of a plot to allow Germany to weaken the Soviet Union. But, Eisenhower had really postponed D-Day and other military operations to allow the Allies enough time to obtain the landing craft needed. Then, a few days before the planned date of June 5th for D-Day, Eisenhower met with his advisors and reviewed the weather forecast.
The reason for the building of the Berlin Wall and the impact on Germany, Berlin and other places, the problems created by the Soviet Union for the people and the restrictions of several human rights and freedom will prove that the era of the Berlin Wall was indeed problematic for the people in different areas. The Berlin wall, how it all started. After World War II, Germany ended up dividing into two separate countries. East Germany and West Germany. East Germany which was a communist country under the control of the Soviet Union.
History is all about inspiring speeches, gruesome wars, and unexpected events that decide the course of the future. The Cold War is not an example of a war, but a highly important event, considering there was no actual fighting. The Cold War started because the Soviet 's wanted to spread communism, but America was getting in their way to stop it. Three major factors also contributed to the conflict of war, the most obvious one being the U.S. wanted to stop communism, another being both the Soviet Union and the United States were afraid of each other, and finally competition, because everyone needs some good competition. These factors are both reasons why the war started, and "weapons" that were used.
He also did not to listen to his general Jodl, who was in charge of the combined services command staff, who suggested that he go to Moscow at the beginning of the war.

What if I told you one single document cause World War II, would you believe me? The Versailles Treaty was a Treaty that all countries signed after World War I to finalize what would happen to Germany. How did the Versailles Treaty help cause a World War II? The Treaty punished Germany in four ways; territory loss, reparations, military reorganization, and war guilt. The most important cause was military reorganization.
The Cold War lasted from 1945 to 1991 when the Soviet Union fell apart. But really, how did the United States and their allies contain communism. What exactly is containment? The definition of containment in this case is the US policy of not letting the Soviet Union expand its empire. The U.S. contained communism at The Berlin Air lift, The Korean War, and the Cuban Missile Crisis.
“When the peace treaty is signed, the war isn’t over” (Marlantes). When the fighting stopped on the battlefront of World War I many leaders of different countries gathered together in Paris. They were there to discuss the Treaty of Versailles that would ensure permanent peace. The treaty that was created was extremely unfair to Germany. The Treaty of Versailles was far from perfect, but some of the biggest faults were forcing Germany to take the blame for the whole war, demanding they give up all of their colonies and decrease the size of their military, and paying reparations to the Allies.
