From the Paper:

"Although the Cold War occurred after the Second World War, it had its roots in the events that took place towards the fag end of World War I. At the time of the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, the First World War was nearing its end; Russia's new Communist leader Vladimir Lenin decided to withdraw his country from the war. Military intervention in Russia by the United States, Britain, France, and Japan, soon followed? purportedly to restore the collapsed Eastern Front in their war effort against Germany. (Legvold, para on ?Background.?) The Communist Russia saw the intervention as an attempt to undermine the fledgling revolution. This sowed the seeds of the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States that came to fore several decades later in the post World War II period."
