The Begining of The Cold War

Causes and beginnings

Once the dust settled from the ciaos that was the Second World War, the Soviet Union and the US emerged as the two new ruling power heads of the world. This bipolar world was directly translated from the inability of the other nations to rise from where the Second War left them. Countries in Europe such as Italy were obliterated and left in their own ruins, while Germany was completely nonexistent. In spite of the fact that Britain had at one point held influence over many nations, it was now declining in power and control. Paranoia took root between the Soviet Union and the US since both feared the other’s corresponding ideology. The US feared the world revolution from the communist ideology, while the Soviets feared capitalist countries encirclement which in turn would pose the danger of counter-revolutions.
