Teaching The Formation of NATO

The Formation of NATO

The United States, Canada, and several Western European nations created the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in 1949 to provide collective security against the Soviet Union. Since 1947, growing tension had developed between the Americans and the Soviets in what was to become known as the Cold War.
