Soviet Expansion and reaction of USA to increased tension
How did the USSR extend control over Eastern Europe? How successful was Stalin in his aim of creating a chain of ‘Soviet satellites’? How did the USA try to counter Soviet influence in Europe? We consider the Truman Doctrine, Greece, Marshall Aid and British reliance on the USA. We also look at the USA resisting a retreat into isolationism, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Comecon and Cominform, as well as Tito and Yugoslavia.
