America-soviet conflicts in the cold war era

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

After the World War II, there was another war involving two blocs namely; the communist on one hand and democracy on the other. This war was known as the Psychology War or Ideology War because there was never a direct military engagement between the two. The democratic bloc was led by the United States while the communist bloc was led by the Soviet Union which resulted in war, known as the Cold War. This cold war crisis occurred immediately upon the end of the Second World War. The rise of communism and territorial expansion policies developed by the Soviet Union was suspiciously viewed by the United States as opposing their political approach as a capitalist nation. The Soviet Union was seen as a threat towards the United States as the world hegemony. The objective of this essay is to analyze issues that led to the America-Soviet conflict during the Cold War era. This study is based on the analysis of documents resources obtained from the United States National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), Washington DC and also from the UK National Archive and Public Records Office (PRO), London. Through this study, it was found that the mam issues revolving around the Washington-Moscow conflicts during the Cold War era are the clash of ideologies, the rivalry of military nuclear construction, economic competition as well as crisis in Cuba and Afghanistan.
