NotesU.S. Secretary of State Marshall outlined a plan to aid Europe, including Britain, Russia, and "everything west of Asia". If European countries brought all their national plans together, America offered financial and material help to revive a working economy in the world. Moscow purported to see in this just a repetition of Truman's declaration of three months before concerning Greece, whereby the US offered aid to free peoples resisting totalitarian pressure. The wholde idea was, to Moscow, an attempt to enslave Europe with dollars. [Caption from Low Visibility A Cartoon History 1945-1953 by David Low]
