Product Description
This is a 12 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the US Presidents - Kennedy's Foreign Policy. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it 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.

The presentation 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

This is one of many power point presentations I offer in my store under the heading ...US Presidents.
