With the end of WW II, the US became the free world’s super power, as the USSR became the major power in the Eastern Bloc. Among the immediate tasks facing the US and the American Presidency were: The end of armed conflict; the beginning of the Cold War; the need to reconstruct the decimated countries of Europe; assisting millions of people who survived the war; and addressing the plight of Holocaust survivors. From 1945 to 2000, these and other issues, including Israel, the peace process, and Middle East wars, consumed much time and energy of these 10 presidents.
