Following the 1927 Geneva Naval Conference, the US Army — evidently bored with the peace and prosperity of the 1920s — decided to draw up plans for a hypothetical war between the United States and the British Empire. The document that resulted from this exercise, War Plan Red, was approved by the War Department in 1930 and not declassified until the 1970s.

Cold War Map Exercise guides students through the divisions that formed immediately after World War II. Students color the alliances of each country in Europe then answer a few questions on their new map. After, they read an excerpt of the Truman Doctrine and complete the exercise based on their analysis of the primary source and map. No other maps from the book are needed, just a set of red and blue color pencils or crayons. This can be used in class or as homework as it’s stand alone.
