America Emerges as a World Power 1940 -1970 with Dr. J. Holmes Armstead (Benjamin O. Davis Jr.), an Ohio Chautauqua workshop is at the New Richmond Branch Library. Mr. Armstead will discuss how America Emerges as a World Power 1940 – 1980.
Learn how we reorganized the allied nations building alliances around the world i.e., NATO, CENTO, and SEATO to define our military positions and sponsored the UN to provide for diplomatic organization of the international community, replacing the failed League of Nations and providing for a new world order.
We’ll also discuss the temporary wartime alliance of the Allied Powers dissolved at the conclusions of hostilities and the ensuing East-West tensions that become a decades long conflict dubbed the Cold War which remained the overarching strategic element in international relations throughout the 20th Century.
