The United States Plan for assistance and relief for the Free World, better known as the Bradley Plan, was the United States plan to curry allies after World War II.
Nazi Germany and the United States of America had ended world War 2 on a stalemate in 1945 with the Treaty of Stockholm. Japan was still to be defeated, and the postwar world was to be decided by the two superpowers. The US realised that the Germans would begin encroaching into Old Commonwealth territory, and decided to step in and keep the Nazis in check. But there was debate on how to do this. Some people in the Joint Chiefs of Staff advocated military occupation, but that would overextend the United States. General Omar Bradley Sent a report to the Pentagon and the White house for his proposal: That key nations receive Aid to ensure that they are US allies. The USA, together with the UK, Canada and Australia pooled Billions of Dollars in aid. The Plan was enacted after the Japanese defeat in 1946.
Omar Bradley noted in his report that there were key areas that needed direct assistance to curry favour. They were Latin America, Asia, South East Asia as well as Free Africa, in order of importance. It was decided that money would go to infrastructure as well as help in industrializing those nations. The main recipients are as follows:
Republic of China: 4 Billion USD
