If you do AQA, these were the questions form last year.

With reference to these sources and your understanding of the historical context, assess the value of these three sources to an historian studying the relationship between the US and South Vietnam in the years c1960-1962

American involvement in Europe, in the years 1945 to 1949, was primarily driven by the desire to advance US economic interests. Assess the validity of this view.

How far do ideological differences between the USSR and China explain the worsening relations that developed between the countries in the years 1963 to 1972?

To what extent, in the years 1972 to 1979 was there a significant reduction in tensions between the superpowers?
