Q3. Briefly explore the gravity of destruction after World War II and conditions which led to Cold War?

Human capacity for self-destruction reached new heights in World War II with 55 million deaths, 50 million refugees, Jewish persecutions and cities reduced to junkyards. Refugees flocked to the cities desperately seeking jobs, food, and shelter.

Old animosities resurfaced even before the war was over. Western allies and Soviet Union established spheres of influence and suspicion and new issues cropped up: Soviet intervention in Eastern Europe, the political struggle for Western Europe, and the role the United States.

Britain and France, the two main European powers were severely weakened by the war’s cost compounded by growing unrest in their colonies. On the other hand Communists who had led much partisan resistance to the Nazis were gaining popularity and votes.
