Program Description

This workshop looks at the first use of military force under the Truman Doctrine, and the Korean War as the first practical manifestation of America’s Cold War "containment" policy. Using works by George Kennan and Walter Lippman, treaties, and the texts of the Marshall Plan and the Truman Doctrine, the onscreen participants take on the roles of major military, political, and strategic players at a mock Senate hearing to decide whether to intervene in Korea in 1950.
