Product Description
The PowerPoint in this lesson first shows how the speed of technological growth from the Industrial Revolution had made total war much too costly by 1914 and unthinkable by the 1950s with the growth of nuclear stockpiles by both the US and USSR. It then analyzes how Cold War crises were handled either by direct diplomacy between the two superpowers or at least one side fighting the other by proxy to avoid a direct military confrontation that could lead to nuclear holocaust.

In the PowerPoint, the color flowchart develops slide by slide while other notes for the students scroll down the side. There are also some photos with captions mixed in to illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest. This packet also contains a student reading, flowchart, and the author’s own research notes.
