A Sample Test Chronology
Here is a sample chronology. Not all the entries
have complete information.
At the Potsdam Conference in the
summer of 1945 leaders of the victorious allied powers decided upon the division
of Germany. That decision meant that Germany would become the center
of East-West rivalry in the following years. Critics of the conference
proceedings have long argued that the absence of Franklin Roosevelt and Winston
Churchill allowed Stalin to dominate the proceedings and ensure that communist
regimes became firmly entrenched in Eastern Europe.
Cuban Missile Crisis
The removal of Nikita Khrushchev
from his position as General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet
Union in October 1964 was an important indicator of the major changes that
had occurred in the U.S.S.R since the death of Stalin in 1953. For
the first time, there had been a peaceful transfer of power (although in
a far from democratic manner), and the new regime, under the control of Leonid
Brezhnev, sought to solidify the power of the communist bureaucracy.
