Cold War The Cold War was the result of Stalin adopting a policy contrary to the Yalta Agreement Certainly to many supporters of the Orthodox view this statement will appear rather obvious In their view the origins of the Cold War however do not essentially lie in the aftermath of Yalta but in the inevitable clash of capitalism and communism The fact that Stalin adopted a in their opinion aggressive policy was not so much the result of security but the expansionist nature of Lenin-Marxism Yet an analysis of a time of such incredible tension is not that simple It could naturally be argued that sooner or later the United States would clash with Soviet Russia As a matter of fact the distrust between the two powers has its early origins in the Russian Civil War where the Western Allies of World War One sent in supplies and men to help the anti-Bolshevik Whites defeat the Red Army This was seen as an attempt to destroy communism in its early years and deeply resented by the Bolsheviks The Second World War changed the situation When Hitler launched Operation Barbarossa it was estimated that Russia would be defeated within weeks months at latest Churchill the British prime minister immediately provided help to Stalin The United States joined the Allies and the impossible had become reality capitalism and communism working hand in hand The Lend Lease arrangement was extended to Russia and all in all ten million tons of war materials were sent by the US to Russia It seems rather far-reaching to propose that circumstances were all that well until Yalta and that the agreements reached there actually led to the Cold War Already during the Second World War there was a growth of distrust between the USSR and the two western powers Britain and the USA Since late 1941 Stalin urged Churchill to open a second front and thus relieve the Red Army
