La Guerre froide et la confrontation entre les deux blocs 1947-1991
The alliance established between the USSR and the United States during the Second World War broke down in 1947. American President Harry S. Truman announced a new policy of containment to prevent further Soviet advances into Europe which Jdanov, one of Stalin’s close advisors, condemned as ‘imperialist'. This event marked the beginning of the Cold War.
