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...
