I am doing some research into the origins of the cold war. I think in the larger sense the origins go back to the Russian revolution and Western resistance to the very idea of Communism. You can even make the argument that origins go back before this to labour strife and the backlash in the 1800's.

But in the modern sense I beleive the world was already moving to a cold war footing even before WWII had ended as Soviet troops were liberating large parts of Eastern Europe. Certainly the opening blows were Kennan's long telegram and Churchill's speech at an American college where the term "iron curtain" was first coined.

Any thoughts?
