Abstract:

In 1953 the fighting in Korea was over but American and Soviet arsenals were growing rapidly. Communist ideologies were gaining support in Eastern Europe, especially in Italy. This and the Iranian crisis were only some of the problems addressed by Ike's man in Europe, John Foster Dulles. With the CIA's help, the Shah was returned to power in Iran. The possibility of a coalition in Europe was hampered by France's war in Indochina, a war that the U.S. supported under the mutual defense program. The supply of arms and armaments, however, was a far cry from intervention, which many in the U.S. government favored. When France pulled out of Vietnam, the U.S. moved in to strengthen the anti-Communist South Vietnamese regime. In West Germany, Konrad Adenauer was instrumental in NATO's approval of German rearmament to counter Soviet East Germany. In Berlin, the East Germans' revolt against their Communist oppressors was soon put down and the Soviets demonstrated their military might by testing their first hydrogen bomb. In response, Ike reported that the U.S. arsenal far outnumbered any stockpile in the world. At the same time, he pressed for peace by describing the horrors that would result from a nuclear war.
