hi im doing international relations/cold war (GCSE) and i need some help
I was wondering if a question is asking how did superpower relations change during 1957-69, would i need to say whether tensions between usa and ussr increased or decreased?
also for the berlin crisis and cuban missile and im unsure whether they resulted in tensions increased or decreasing
so for the berlin crisis the economic crisis in east berlin went after the Berlin wall was built (decreasing tension?) however Kennedy began making speeches in West Berlin and the wall was a symbol of the world division (increasing tension?)
similarly obviously the cuban missile crisis resulted in tension between usa and ussr as usa could have detonated their nuclear weapons in turkey and italy however at the end it resulted in the test ban treaty and hotline agreements being set up which eased tension. im so confused so would i write that these crises increased or decreased tension?
sorry for such a long answer, any responses would be appreciated ty

The word 'crisis' should give you a clue that tensions rose - otherwise it would not be called a crisis. However, if a crisis ends with a reduction in tension that should also be pointed out.

Am studying about the Cold War too. It's confusing at the parts about the Cuban Missile Crisis. And how they set missiles and blockades and stuff.
