Marshall Plan for postwar Europe

marshall collageEuropean nations were swept up in war for almost 10 years during World War II. After it was all over they needed some serious help to pull it all back together.

That’s when the US stepped in and became the most powerful country in the world.

George C. Marshall, US Secretary of State, laid out the immediate plan for post-war Europe in a Harvard speech, 1947.

In what amounts to 2 pages that changed the world, we have included a transcript of the speech as well as questions and answers for the document.
