The Marshall Plan: Dawn of the Cold War Reviews

  • Frank Stein
    Apr 10, 2018

    At a time when the President of the United States disparages the European Union and NATO, it is important to remember the role the Atlantic Alliance has played since the end of World War II. President Trump can tweet and criticize these institutions all he wants, but you skirt their im...

    As a Cold War junkie, I always wondered how East and West Germany came to be.  At the Yalta Conference in February 1945, the Allies agreed to govern Germany as a whole, with the United States, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and France, each to temporarily administer a zone.   ...

    It's a shame that this book doesn't really know what it is. Although nominally about the Marshall Plan, it only spends 35 pages detailing how it was implemented. Most of the book is about the wider struggle over post-World War II Europe, involving everything from the division of German...

    The Marshall Plan by Benn Steil The Marshall Plan is an extremely well documented and extensively researched examination of how the plan changed the world in the late 1940?s, 50?s and even today. After World War II our European allies were on the verge of economic collapse. Thos...

    President George Washington bid his countrymen to steer clear of foreign entanglements, especially with Europe, whose interests were remote from the United States. After World War II, President Harry Truman took seriously Washington?s warning against foreign alliances, but he was con...

    ?The most unsordid act in history? is how Churchill famously described the Marshall Plan (recycling a phrase he?d originally applied to the Lend-Lease Bill) and there?s no denying that in offering financial assistance to war-ravaged Europe, the United States was moved in part b...

    Thank you to the publishers for providing an ARC of this book through NetGalley. Really dry, really detailed and seriously in need of a timeline. This felt less about the Marshall Plan, which did have major importance for Europe in the aftermath of the world war, and more about the ...

    Steil uses his skills explaining economic policy (the Bretton Woods book was excellent) and a wave of newly available documents from eastern Europe to position the Marshall plan as early Cold War policy. At 400 pages, the details are rich and illustrative, and allow for full discussion...

    At a time when the President of the United States disparages the European Union and NATO, it is important to remember the role the Atlantic Alliance has played since the end of World War II. President Trump can tweet and criticize these institutions all he wants, but you skirt their im...

    As a Cold War junkie, I always wondered how East and West Germany came to be.  At the Yalta Conference in February 1945, the Allies agreed to govern Germany as a whole, with the United States, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and France, each to temporarily administer a zone.   ...

    It's a shame that this book doesn't really know what it is. Although nominally about the Marshall Plan, it only spends 35 pages detailing how it was implemented. Most of the book is about the wider struggle over post-World War II Europe, involving everything from the division of German...

    The Marshall Plan by Benn Steil The Marshall Plan is an extremely well documented and extensively researched examination of how the plan changed the world in the late 1940?s, 50?s and even today. After World War II our European allies were on the verge of economic collapse. Thos...

    President George Washington bid his countrymen to steer clear of foreign entanglements, especially with Europe, whose interests were remote from the United States. After World War II, President Harry Truman took seriously Washington?s warning against foreign alliances, but he was con...

    ?The most unsordid act in history? is how Churchill famously described the Marshall Plan (recycling a phrase he?d originally applied to the Lend-Lease Bill) and there?s no denying that in offering financial assistance to war-ravaged Europe, the United States was moved in part b...

    Thank you to the publishers for providing an ARC of this book through NetGalley. Really dry, really detailed and seriously in need of a timeline. This felt less about the Marshall Plan, which did have major importance for Europe in the aftermath of the world war, and more about the ...

    Steil uses his skills explaining economic policy (the Bretton Woods book was excellent) and a wave of newly available documents from eastern Europe to position the Marshall plan as early Cold War policy. At 400 pages, the details are rich and illustrative, and allow for full discussion...

    The Marshall Plan by Benn Steil The Marshall Plan is an extremely well documented and extensively researched examination of how the plan changed the world in the late 1940?s, 50?s and even today. After World War II our European allies were on the verge of economic collapse. Thos...

    President George Washington bid his countrymen to steer clear of foreign entanglements, especially with Europe, whose interests were remote from the United States. After World War II, President Harry Truman took seriously Washington?s warning against foreign alliances, but he was con...

    ?The most unsordid act in history? is how Churchill famously described the Marshall Plan (recycling a phrase he?d originally applied to the Lend-Lease Bill) and there?s no denying that in offering financial assistance to war-ravaged Europe, the United States was moved in part b...

    Thank you to the publishers for providing an ARC of this book through NetGalley. Really dry, really detailed and seriously in need of a timeline. This felt less about the Marshall Plan, which did have major importance for Europe in the aftermath of the world war, and more about the ...

    At a time when the President of the United States disparages the European Union and NATO, it is important to remember the role the Atlantic Alliance has played since the end of World War II. President Trump can tweet and criticize these institutions all he wants, but you skirt their im...

    As a Cold War junkie, I always wondered how East and West Germany came to be.  At the Yalta Conference in February 1945, the Allies agreed to govern Germany as a whole, with the United States, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and France, each to temporarily administer a zone.   ...

    It's a shame that this book doesn't really know what it is. Although nominally about the Marshall Plan, it only spends 35 pages detailing how it was implemented. Most of the book is about the wider struggle over post-World War II Europe, involving everything from the division of German...

    Steil uses his skills explaining economic policy (the Bretton Woods book was excellent) and a wave of newly available documents from eastern Europe to position the Marshall plan as early Cold War policy. At 400 pages, the details are rich and illustrative, and allow for full discussion...

    I received a free Kindle copy of  The Marshall Plan: Dawn of the Cold Warby Benn Steil courtesy of Net Galley and Simon and Shuster, the publisher. It was with the understanding that I would post a review to Net Galley, Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and my nonfiction book revi...

    This is a well written and researched work on the post World War II era. What did the US do and why did they do it. The author not only covers the Marshall Plan but the birth of NATO and the European Union. These developments have led to the containment of Russia as a US foreign policy...

    Thorough and insightful only recommend you read with a dictionary and Wikipedia nearby? ...
