P1:B -Conflict and Tension between East and West, 1945-72 (A.K.A. Cold War)

This section of the paper (P1:B) is worth 25% of your GCSE and contains 4 questions (see the structure document below to find out more). I would suggest that, once your in depth revision is completed, you might want to tie it all together by plotting a graph over time (x-axis) and plot how every event impacted on tensions between the USA and USSR. As a second graph, you might want to plot who 'won' with each major aspect of the specification you study.

Tensions go up... tensions go down...

Win some... lose some...
