Sample text

At the end of 1947 Soviet-western negotiations about the future of Germany broke down completely. In early 1948 the western powers announced plans which signalled their intention to establish a separate west German state. One of those policies was the introduction of a new currency in the western zone of occupation—thereby furthering the economic division of the country. It was ostensibly in protest at the western currency reform that the Soviet Union launched its land blockade of Berlin. However, the real Soviet target was the projected West German state and its integration into a western cold war bloc.

14). 24 COEXISTENCE, REVOLUTION AND THE COLD WAR The Soviet response to the Truman Doctrine was not long in coming, however. The event which precipitated it was the Marshall Plan. It was in the light of the Marshall Plan that Moscow began to take the Truman Doctrine more seriously and to link the two together in the perception of an American project of constructing an anti-Soviet western bloc in Europe. Marshall in a speech at Harvard University on 5 June 1947. What Marshall and the Americans had in mind was financial aid for western Europe which, because of its dire postwar economic conditions, was seen as being under threat of a communist takeover.

That way conflicts between the allies could be minimised by a clear demarcation of interests. Such thinking was shared by some western officials, but it was not very practical policy since the British and especially US governments denied any interest in concluding such a grand spheres of influence arrangement. Soviet concessions to western security concerns, therefore, took a more ad-hoc form. Stalin’s refusal to intervene on behalf of the communist side in the Greek civil war was one example—Greece having long been conceded to a British sphere of influence in the Mediterranean.
