Abstract

Already before his inauguration, JFK began to focus on Berlin and the tension with the Soviet block over the status of this divided city. While President, JFK took forceful steps to reassure our allies and the American public that this nation stood by the post-war settlement. The handling of the crises that flared up reveal much about JFK's art of diplomacy and style of leadership.
