Nuclear weapons and international relations from 1945 to 1960
- Its development over the years
- It economic policy
During the Second World War, the belligerents were investing all their forces into battle in order to win. During the confrontation, the powers in action strived to find the weapon that could bring them victory. English, Germans and Americans work very hard behind the scenes to try to control atomic energy. On 6 August 1945, the US released the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima. On that day the world changed. The destructive power of this weapon changed all the military strategies and international states. We will thus attempt to show how the development of nuclear weapons from 1945 was the engine of international relations until the 1960s. How did nuclear weapons change the nature of international relations to become the conductor of the east/west confrontation?
