PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentations on the Cold War - JFK's Foreign Policy & The Vietnam War. Both presentations together number 34 slides. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.

The Cold War raged on in the 1960s. President Kennedy faced a confident Soviet Union and a sleeping giant in the People’s Republic of China. Fears of communist expansion plagued American foreign policy in places as distant as Vietnam and as close as Cuba.

Like his predecessors, Kennedy made containment his chief foreign policy goal. Abandoning Dwight Eisenhower's heavy reliance on nuclear deterrence, Kennedy expanded defense spending. The United States needed a “Flexible Response” capability.

To Kennedy, this meant a variety of military options depending upon the specific conditions. Conventional forces were upgraded. Included in this program was the establishment of special forces units similar to the Green Berets. Despite the expense, Kennedy believed communism was a menace that required maximal preparation.

Power point #1 is entitled, US Presidents - Kennedy's Foreign Policy contains 12 slides and covers the following:

The Cold War
Communist Threat
The Peace Corp
“Win-Win”
Alliance for Progress
West Germany
Bay of Pigs
Cuban Missile Crises
Catastrophe Avoided
End of Presentation

In the 1960s, the United States remained committed to Cold War goals and sought to stem the spread of Communism around the globe. Continuing the policy of containment, the United States sent more and more troops to Vietnam. There, bogged down in jungle-fighting and bombing campaigns, the United States became enmeshed in a long and costly war.

When the United States finally left the Vietnamese to determine their own fate in the early 1970s, Americans had a major mood of distrust of government.

Power point #2 is entitled, the Cold War - The Vietnam War contains 22 slides and covers the following:

JFK’s Foreign Policy
