How did the Cold War (period that began immediately following WWII) affect the Congo
Since you're doing a research paper, I suggest you first check the article on the Congo in this encyclopedia.
For more information, go to Google and search for Congo Cold War.
I did but it doesnt really help
Remember that the Cold War was a war of threats and posturing by the Soviet Union and its allies and the United States and its Western European allies.
Encarta has a couple of paragraphs on the Congo and the Cold War on page 10 in the section titled "Secession of Katanga."
Also check Encarta's article about the Cold War for more information.
okay thank you
i hate this dumb research assignment.
