Same again! European dictators, Lenin and Mussolini!

For Paper 3, I put 3 points in the introduction, keeping it short and concise, stating the evidence of the historian taking this perspective etc, then a paragraph for each point with evidence in quotes from the source etc, then in the conclusion basically reiterate the introduction but state why it cannot be any other conclusion than this perspective (Thats one of the points in the mark scheme for the top band of marks). That seems to have been a pretty good framework to work with so far!

This was my intro for my better essays that got pretty good marks if this helps!

The historian takes the approach of a traditionalist, placing the blame for the Cold War upon Russia. Soviet leadership in the post war period attempted to take advantage of the dire post-war situation in Europe, suspicions of the Capitalist nations dominated their decisions and their Marxist beliefs caused the Soviets to view the situation as ‘revolutionary’, all of which contributed to Soviet fault in causing the Cold War.
