SUPERPOWER RELATIONS KEY POINTS

Just a list of everything you need to know for the exam (taken from each section heading of the 'EDEXCEL SUPERPOWER RELATIONS AND VIETNAM 1945-1990 GCSE MODERN WORLD HISTORY' textbook.

Have created this list because we don't get to have our own textbook at my school so its a good starting point for making revision notes for yourself which I'm going to go and do now...woo hoo :S

Hope you find it useful x
