HISTORY PROJECT ONE COLD WAR Research question: What was the importance of the Marshall plan and how did it benefit eastern Europe? Europe was devastated by years of conflict during World War II. Millions of people had been killed or wounded. Agricultural production had also been disrupted by war which. Europe remained ravaged by war and thus susceptible to exploitation by an internal and external Communist threat.
monopolizing would not be in the best interest of most average Americans. Woodrow fought to protect using a lot of Roosevelts methods. When it comes down to it every great man can be defined by a single moment in their life for Woodrow Wilson that moment could be when he presented the fourteen-point plan which was created to deal with issues pertaining to international affairs. The fist point was open diplomacy. Wilson felts as if open avenues of peace when make it easier to find their way towards a peaceful future.
This is the Industrial Revolution made Europe want to expand. Secondly, with all the factories that Europe has, it gave them more improved weapons such as guns, armed ships, and fortifications. International trade is one of the things Europe did for resources. The coal mines and textile factories played a big role for the Europeans. Steam engines and furnaces needed coal and clothes were made in textile factories.
The Marshall Plan, according to many researchers, is a practical embodiment of the Truman Doctrine. Due to limited resources, interference in other regions, even if covered by the Truman Doctrine, was considered undesirable because China and Palestine were less important than the restoration of Europe. In addition, at this time, the Truman Administration is moving away from the doctrine of containing communism and moving on to a strategy of containing the Soviet Union. This was also part of the strategy in
During World War II (WWII) the United States (U.S.) and Russia fought as allies against the Nazis. Following WWII, the relationship between the two countries quickly began to deteriorate. Around 1947 the WWII era ended and a Cold War involving the U.S. and Soviet Russia began. The Marshall Plan was implemented following Soviet aggression in Europe in order to provide aid and relief to an already war-torn nation. The Soviet response to the Marshall Plan became known as the Zhdanov Doctrine.
Advisor: Dr. Brown Abstract Rebuilding Europe was not easy; with the support of the United States of America (USA) there was a better recovery after World War Two (WW2). After WW2 was over Europe was in sheer destruction, rebuilding itself within them selves would be a long process, putting Europe behind other nations. The importance of the Marshall plan is that Europe was able to improve their infrastructure, market and industry
Due to the imminence of war, this plan had the sole focus of producing armaments. The need for consumer goods was again ignored – this time for spending on war preparations. Defense bending took one-third of the overall budget (Harris, 2013). Due to the rapid increase in industrial manufacturing produced by the two earlier plans (from 1928 to 1941 there was a 400% increase in steel and 600% increase coal), the country was able to defend herself against Nazi Germany in the brutalities of the "total war". Without mass industrialization, the Soviet victory in World War II would not have been possible.
The space “Debate: El Plan Marshall” was issued in the program “Para todos La 2” on February 5, 2013. It is a colloquium between Emilio Sáenz-Francés, Professor History and International Relations at the University Pontificia de Comillas; and Lorenzo Delgado Gómez-Escalonilla, researcher at the Higher Center for Scientific Research. The colloquium focuses on explaining the effects of The Marshall Plan, a plan of aid that the United States established after the Second World War to rebuild Europe- Plan that Franco's Spain couldn’t benefit. After the Second World War, much of Europe was devastated and millions of people had died, most of the cities and the industrial areas were badly damaged. The economic structure of the continent had been destroyed.
In accordance with Marshall Plan in the years 1948-1951 US provided Western European countries with the financial assistance in the amount of approximately 13 billion dollars, which contributed to their post-war reconstruction. By 1951 the volume of industrial production in Western Europe was about 43 % higher than the prewar level. At the same time, the implementation of Marshall Plan strengthened the position of the American capital in Europe and provided the US companies with extensive sales
The Magellan expedition was done in technicality rather than direct action. His knowledge upon the sea did not necessarily complete the excursion but rather, developed Spain’s image and reputation upon exploration. He has managed to travel in two different directions which lead to his widespread view on various cultures, visiting Morocco, Southeast Asia, and South America. Yet, he failed to reach back to his original point of departure, caused by the Malaccan war that eventually brought the explorer to his death (“Ferdinand Magellan History”). Though he has put in time and effort into trying to discover the Spice Islands, he passed away in the middle of his journey leaving many sailors confused of what to do.
