History 12-1: Intro to the Cold War

Today we had an intro to the Cold War by discussing the key vocabulary terms and then some of the opening events. You should already have read Chapter 13 in DeMarco (and done Ex 3-4). Today I added Ex #3 from Falk (it reviews the big events we discussed today). There is no other reading, enjoy the sun.
Lots of new terms
Greece is the catalyst for the Truman Doctrine

NATO partners get aid (Stalin blocked offers
of US aid in his sphere)
Catalyst for the Berlin blockade
Ah, good ol' propaganda: we can't ignore the reach of the USA
Three steps: Brussels, NATO, NSC #68
