Road to Berlin Airlift

February 1946


The American foreign affairs adviser in post in Moscow, George Kennan, composes an 8,000-word "long telegram" laying out his understanding of the Soviet world view. Kennan's telegram helps shape U.S. foreign policy. George Kennan is best known as "the father of containment" and as a key figure in the emergence of the Cold War.
