The United Nations (UN) is an international organization whose stated aims are to facilitate cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, social progress, human rights and achieving world peace. The UN was founded in 1945 after World War II to replace the League of Nations, to stop wars between countries and to provide a platform for dialogue.

United Nations in The Hot War[]

The United Nations' mission statement did not prevent the devastating Third World War in 1951.

United Nations in The Man With the Iron Heart[]

The Truman Administration pointed to American membership in the United Nations as a political success. However, UN membership did little to solve problems the US faced in Occupied Germany.

United Nations in "Notes from the General Secretariat"[]
