7. Cold War
7.1 The Cold War (in One Take)
World leaders, including Joseph Stalin and Harry Truman, met to discuss post-war Europe and Germany’s future in the summer of 1945. What was the name of this conference?
The dawn of the Cold War brought deadly technology, brutal wars, and fear across the globe. So hold tight as this lesson – and its musical ‘In One Take’ video – takes you on a high-octane tour across borders and through time, covering the entire history of the Cold War.
This lesson contains:
- A detailed chronology of the key political events, wars, and characters that both fuelled and shaped the Cold War.
- A look at the development of tensions between the US and the USSR from the end of World War Two and throughout the second-half of the 20th century.
- An analysis of which events and developments had the greatest influence on the progression of the Cold War.
