This essay is a discussion of the reasons the Cold War began. The author describes the intentions of Stalin, Churchill, Roosevelt, and Truman and discusses whether the Cold War actually began over Europe or Asia.

From the Paper:

"Throughout the Big Three negotiations during World War II, Franklin Roosevelt was determined to work with the Soviet Union. In order to guarantee Soviet adherence to the principle of unconditional surrender and to secure their participation in the war in the Pacific, Roosevelt, often against Churchill's wishes, worked to accommodate Stalin's desire for security. Hoping to establish a postwar order in which both the US and USSR would not feel threatened, Roosevelt agreed to a buffer zone of friendly states around the Soviet Union."
