This paper explains that, while no specific factor itself caused the U.S. victory in the Cold War, several events caused the downfall of the communist threat. The paper then asserts that the positions of Presidents Ronald Reagan and Harry Truman and Pope John Paul II were major contributors to the downfall of Russia. In addition, the paper relates that the the establishment of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization deferred an attack from the Soviets for four decades.

From the Paper:

"Pope John Paul is also a major influence on the United States victory in the Cold War. He gets two mentions in the top ten, coming in at the number four spot for his election. John Paul II allied with Reagan in the Cold War and gained respect for his "firm resistance against communism." He refused to be intimidated by Poland's communist leaders and told Poles to "be not afraid." His advice to the Poland citizens not to fear the system rounds up the top 10 list."
