(Ft. Leavenworth series) Nuclear Containment in a Bipolar World

November 2, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

The wartime alliance of the U.S. and Soviet Union began to crack even before the end of World War II, but relations completely crumbled in the immediate aftermath of the conflict. As both nations boasted nuclear weapons, the U.S. attempted to use containment as the primary strategy for dealing with the Soviet Union throughout the Cold war. Dr. David W. Mills will explore the military and political confrontations between the two countries, as well as the U.S. government’s attempts to idolize American democratic systems while denigrating communism.
