Conflict in a Bi-Polar Community In order to understand how two global superpowers affected the rest of the world, we are going to research conflicts that involved either the United States, the Soviet Union, or their allies during the second half of the twentieth century.

Timeline: Identify key events. Key actors: Explain who the local leaders and key players were and how they figured into the conflict. Intervention: Explain how one or both superpowers attempted to hinder the nation’s right toward self determination.
