World War 2 happened in 1941-1945. It was a war against Germany and Japan against Russia, Europe, and Asia. We were brought in it at the attack at Pearl Harbor. The attack was from the Japan attacking us and we got involved in the war. When we got involved in the war we joined up with Russia, and Europe and the other countries that was joined with them.
One could make the argument WW 2 was a continuation of WW1. World War 2 occurred twenty years after World War 1. WW 1 left causes leading to WW 2, like, Treaty of Versailles and the search for thorough ideas, such as Fascism, communism and militarism. It was due to the terrible conditions of different countries after the wars. I think that World War II was a continuation of World War I.
After the deaths of 37,508,686 soldiers by the end of World War I, Europe was a mess. Countries had been dissolved and rearranged, governments had fallen and been replaced, and economies were thriving then crashing, all as a result from World War I. One of the main goals at the end of World War I was to prevent another tragedy like World War I from happening again. Clearly that did not happen, as World War II still happened, causing over 50 million deaths. The repercussions of World War I caused World War II due to radical ideology, bad economic conditions, and nationalism to the point of extremity.
I believe that World War II was a continuation of World War I because of some not resolved issues. Hitler violated the Treaty of Versailles by expanding the military and invading Poland. One of the events that led to the beginning of World War 1 was: Militarism, Alliances, Imperialism, and Nationalism; which stands for MAIN. Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia but they then joined up with Russia. After, Germany declared war on Russia which caused the war to expand. World War I ended in 1918 when Germany surrendered. It also had a great impact on European countries after it ended.
The main cause of World War II was the Treaty of Versailles. The Treaty of Versailles was signed to make peace after World War 1, and the War Guilt Cause stated that Germany was the cause of the war so they needed to pay off all of their debts. Germany lost plenty of land because of the treaty. This made life hard for Germans because they needed to find a new place to live and they lost a lot of money. Germany had lost this land because of the treaty; this made Hitler suggest that they should fight to get back what they lost(Doc A).
World War II had a major impact on America. America did suffer economic crisis from the
As we all know, the Second World War left a huge impact on the world, and populations that suffered in the past are still healing from all the wounds caused by this destructive war. That is why the Historical Committee on Warfare is still searching for resolutions and is trying to deal with the consequences of the war.
World War II. World War II began 20 short years after World War I occurred. There were many memorable and momentous events that have occurred during this World War. The events that happened before the war is just as important as the events that happened during the war. It all began with the ideas of Adolf Hitler, the leader of Germany and Head of the Nazi Party. Hitler planned on making Germany the Third Reich by expanding and creating an “Aryan” racial state. Hitler believed that the superior nations had the right to lebensraum. Lebensraum was living space through expansion. Lebensraum gave the superior individuals the ability to gain authoritarian leadership. This is how Hitler came to power. While Spain was fighting
Land-Lease- Signed in 1941, the Land-Lease policy ended American neutrality and was the principal way in which the United States went about giving aid to its allies fighting against the Axis Powers. Under the policy, the United States would “lend” its allies food and supplies and in return, the aided country would “lease” land for the United States to build army and naval bases.
After World War I, many Americans feared the idea that communism would spread, they called this concern “The Red Scare”. Americans were wary of the spreading of communism after the Russian Revolution, in their paranoia America attempted to block new incomers, especially eastern and southern Europeans. In addition to The Red Scare, there were limited jobs in America, because of this generations of workers whose families had immigrated before the 1900s, began to view new incomers as a threat because they would work for lower pay and further reduce the jobs available for the nativists . Due to these concerns, immigration regulations went into effect. For instance,
he effort on the Canadian government and civilians did lead towards the allied victory of WW2 by the control of financial. In World War 2, paying for the war and waging the war were expensive, so the king figured out ways to pay it all, by raising income tax and selling Victory Bonds. The way of selling the Victory bonds is to sell it to people and a few years later, they would get their money plus the interest back. Meanwhile, the government could use this money to pay for the war effort. The Chinese Canadians raised $4 million in the relief funds and send $5 million to support the effort in China. The total expenses that the federal government spending on the War effort were $21 786 077 519 from 1939-1950. At the end of the war, the victory
President Franklin D. Roosevelt says , “ Citizens of all democracies unite in their desire for peace” in a speech addressed on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the Statue of Liberty in October of 1936. This ties back to today's reality of all the different opinions in politics. Despite the different we all share the common hope for peace even though we don’t see eye to eye. This is an example of a true American.
The armed conflicts in which the United States has been involved since 1945 have not been “total wars.” World War II was a “total war” in that it involved most of the civilized world and mandated an all-out effort from the citizens of this country. Commodities were rationed, communities formed drives to gather important materials for the war effort. People enlisted to fight the common threat. Today’s “wars” are not “total” wars in that there is no community effort and the battles are fought by volunteers that represent a small part of the American demography; notably poor people seeking opportunities in the armed forces. WWII was the last Great War in which the entire country participated.
World War II happened during the time that women wanted more rights and wanted to be able to work. So when World War II happened, it created new job opportunities and women were able and willing to work. The war was fought between two alliances that was against each other, “the opposing alliances are now referred to as ‘The Axis’ and ‘The Allies’. The Axis group consisted of Germany, Italy, and Japan. The Allies group consisted of France, Britain, the U.S., the Soviet Union, and China. World War II was especially heinous because of the genocide of Jewish people perpetrated by the Nazis.” (Diffen LLC, n.d.d). World War II is known for being a brutal and long war that involved more than thirty countries. Also, some of the important things of
In 1941, the United States, still in the throes of the Great Depression, enters World War II. With the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, the U.S. Congress, after a request by President Franklin Roosevelt, declares war. War is declared not just on Japan, but also on its ally, Hitler’s Germany. Because their ages range from 33 years to 42 years, and because they are married with three of them helping to raise two children each, Paul Baumgartner, Frank Young, Orval Koehler and Frank Deppe are not drafted into the military.
