WW2 and the Cold WarThere were certainly other contributing factors, but yes, you could say that the situation at the end of World War II led to the Cold War situation in Europe and Southeast Asia.

There were many reasons for the cold war and a lot this had to do with relations between the USA and the USSR (Russia). Russia wanted to spread communism through Eastern Europe to create a buffer zone to protect them from any future German invasions, (27 million people died in Russia during ww2) however USA wanted to prevent the spread. Also another reason was the fact that America had dropped the first Atomic Bomb and wouldn't let USSR in on the secret.

I hope that helps you a little...

The end of world war two lead to the start of the cold war because Russia (USSR) wanted to invade other countries in the east and was creating nuclear weapons which were being aimed at America (USA).

It didnt lead to the cold war, it led to the space race. The cold war was a time of tension between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, and they were during the same time, but Sputnik 1 didnt cause the cold war.

Wups! You have that just backward. The use of the atom bomb in World War 2 led to the cold war in the 1950s and after, because the USA and the USSR could always have fired nuclear missiles at the other guys.
