Summary/Abstract: The study considers the security strategy of the USA in the period 1945 – 1947, which was very important for the formation of the post-war international order and had very serious results for the states of Central and Eastern Europe, including Czechoslovakia. The study is especially directed towards key documents of the Truman administration concerned with preparations for nuclear war against the USSR. These contributed to the establishment of a firm confrontational course, which finally ensured that Czechoslovakia and other countries in this region were transferred from an open sphere of Soviet influence to an exclusive sphere with all the negative consequences associated with this.
