Each colonial conflict is indicated in black boxes. Explanatory text describes the formation of United Nations trusteeships to prevent future struggles between nations and the colonies. Colonial issues include the British problem with Palestine and which they finally relinquished it to the trusteeship. This led to the 1948 establishment of the state of Israel. Also included is the beginning of the independence movement in India, France's problems in French West Africa, a revolt against French domination in Indochina. Colored key indicates colonies and territories of the ruling nations including the United States which was authorized to establish bases in Guam and the Marshall Islands.
