From the beginning Of World War II in 1939 until the end in 1945, the battles between the Allied and Axis powers were violent and caused great destruction. It became a world dispute after the attack on Pearl Harbor. From then on, countries such as the United States, France, Germany, Japan, the Soviet Union, and many others fought vigorously until a victory was achieved. World War II officially began after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor and the United States declared war. The war was made up of a series of major events such as the Battle of El Alamein, the Battle of Leyte Gulf, the Battle of Stalingrad, and D-Day which all lead to the victory of the Allied powers.
“observe not a victory of a party, but a celebration of freedom – symbolizing an end as well as a beginning – signifying renewal, as well as change. For I have sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forebears prescribed nearly a century and three-quarters ago.”
It was on March 23, a few centuries back when the man by the name of Patrick Henry delivered his famous speech titled “Give me liberty or give me death!” As interestingly as it sounds, the diction of this man has been very powerful that until today, citizens of the United States nominate it as a great impact. And why wouldn’t they if it’s about a man who is urging the population to desire Patriotism in America. Just before the country entered the Revolutionary War against England, his speech was heard around the colonies and served to persuade the entry to battle. Many liked and agreed with his words, but others disagreed. In this case, there is several ideas in which Henry’s speech can be argued against. Despite the views who agree with him, an argument must be addressed.
The battle of the bulge was Hitler's last chance to win the war or at least make the allies go for a treaty. He did this because his forces were being pushed back into Germany and soon they would run out of supplies and other resources for war. Hitler thought of this bold plan when he recalled how a German hero Frederick the great was facing defeat, Frederick went on a offensive attack at his foe who had superior numbers but the bold moved worked and Hitler thought he could do the same thing.

"Never make an attempt to gain our freedom or natural right, from under our cruel oppressor, and murderers, until you see your way clear --when that hour arrives and you move, be not afraid or
Flags burning under raining bombs, gunshots echoing through a field of raining terror, while hiding underground for the day where humanity can roam free again; situations as so aren’t exactly what people imagine when thinking about one’s future. Every death was honored by those who lived; lives lost during wars of any kind are unlike lives lost in our country today, not for the value of those once living are greater than another, but from how much those lives mean to this day. Establishment and preservation of freedom wasn’t easy and will never be easy; many people served until their last breath, for the freedoms of our lives today. That is why we must continue to grasp for freedom, and to establish and preserve our freedom most effectively we must have the heart to be free, and have united dedication to freedom itself.
World War II was one of the deadliest military conflicts in history. There were many different battles that took place within this war; some more important than others. World War II began once Germany’s new dictator, Adolf Hitler, decided that he wanted to gain power for Germany and for himself.

In 1775, Patrick Henry gave America one of the most inspiring speeches that will bring soon bring them together with war on the rise. “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” has become the battle-cry to the people in the colonies to take a stand against Britain’s rule and make America their own country. Even after the attempted peace between the two countries, it has been exhausted to the breaking point, and it has come to the time where fighting for their own freedom is the only viable option. Henry’s speech spoke volumes to the American people of the truth, the false presence of peace, and the cry for battle against Britain.
“The star spangled banner is now the harbinger of liberty and the millions in bondage will rally under that banner” (Dudley 167). This powerful quote was spoken by Frederick Douglas. The meaning behind these words show how millions of African American and white citizens should come together to fight for the Union (Dudley 167) Clement Vallandigham had said “It was good enough for my fathers. It is good enough for us and our children after us” (Dudley 170). He believes since the United states have had slaves for seventy years the United States will continue to have slaves (Dudley 169). “The thought of a country unified in sentiments, objects and ideas, has not entered into their political calculations, and hence this newly declared policy of the Government” Frederick Douglass, the man who spoke those words, understood that as a nation evolves, the culture evolves as well; the two must work conjointly (Dudley 167). What was true seventy years ago would not always be true in order for a country to grow and thrive (Dudley

“This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave”-Elmer Davis. One of the last lines of the national anthem is one of the most significant and sometimes, America’s citizens forget the understanding and reasoning behind those few couple of words.
