Video title: Europe and the Soviet American Rivalry

Use this History and Western Heritage video entitled Europe and the Soviet American Rivalry to study how The Cold War effectively dominated most global events until the late 1980s. Discover how the tension between the West and the Communist bloc actually started before the fighting ended in World War 2. Unclear intentions, expansionist motives, growing mistrust, Soviet support of communist parties in eastern Europe, and corresponding support by the United States for anticommunist governments in western Europe all contributed to the strained postwar political atmosphere. The end of the war left too many unresolved international and colonial problems for the infant United Nations Organization (UNO) to deal with.

Learn about Europe and Soviet American Rivalry.
