Background Events The Truman Doctrine was a response to a crisis. Behind it lay the Communist/Soviet takeover of many of the countries of eastern Europe by salami tactics which, Truman alleged, was in breach of Stalins promises at the Yalta Conference. Then, in February 1947, the British government which had been helping the Greek government resist Communist rebels announced that it could no longer afford to keep its soldiers there. It seemed to Truman and his advisers that, of they did nothing, it was only a matter of time before the communists took over YET ANOTHER country. Background Trumans Speech to Congress, March 1947 On 12 March 1947, President Truman spoke to Congress. His speech is very famous. What he said became known later as the Truman Doctrine. Truman began by outlining the situation in Greece. Assistance is imperative if Greece is to survive as a free nation, he told Congress. Greece must have assistance if it is to become a self-supporting and self-respecting democracy. Without help, Greece would fall to Communism. Nearby Turkey, he added, was in a similar situation.
