June 6th 1944, probably the most important day in history. Not only for the United States but also for all of Europe. D-day started the fall of Nazi Germany who took over pretty much all of Europe during the time of Adolf Hitler. The United States got involved in WW2 because of another event called Pearl Harbor.
The bombing killed more than 2,300 Americans. It completely destroyed the American battleship U.S.S. The Battle of the Atlantic is one of the most overlooked battlegrounds of World War II but it proved no less important for control of the vital shipping lanes between North America and Europe. The German U-boat scourge was one of the more deadlier components of the German war machine, a component utilized in World War II as well. The U-boat became the greatest threat to merchantmen traversing the long out causeways of the Atlantic Ocean for most of the war.
This event marks the start of World War II in
If the United States had won this battle, and at least had a warning that an attack was going take place we could have killed them and possibly speed the process of bombing them with the atomic bomb. Sadly Pearl Harbor included the death of 2,400 U.S soldiers and 1143 wounded. 55 Japaneses were killed in the
He envisioned a pure and powerful Germany. World War Two officially started when Germany invaded Poland, this was what provoked Britain and France to officially declare war on Germany. The war was a result of political viewpoints like Fascism, Militarism and Nationalism and Germany’s search for revenge and justice after World War one. Perhaps the most significant battle in Australian history is the Battle of Kokoda. Kokoda began after the Japanese Imperial army invaded PNG in an attempt to capture Port Moresby and use it to launch an attack and invade Australia.
On August 6, 1945, the first of two atomic bombs was dropped on Japan, sparking the start of what is now known as the Cold War. Two large military powers, the Soviet communists and the United States of America, pitted their wits and defense against each other, using any means necessary to find cracks in the others’ defenses. Three days later, the second atom bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan, which shook the world with its deafening death toll. The world immediately took up arms in the following years, sparking some of the most controversial years in history. Suspicion turned brothers against sisters, neighbors against neighbors, and caused many lives to be ruined.
September 1, 1939, the start of World War II, regarded by many as the worst point in history. More than 85,000,000 people died in the years of 1939 to 1945. Adolf Hitler said something that sums up what the Germans were trying to accomplish during WWII, “Today Germany tomorrow the world.” Hiroshima and the Tuskegee Airmen are two things that greatly affected people and the war in general. Without Hiroshima and the Tuskegee Airmen the war may have ended differently.
Some got hit with both. Four armor-piercing bombs hit one of the ships, the USS Arizona. One of the bombs hit the forward magazine, which caused all the ammo to explode and sink, killing 1,117 men. The ship is still there as a memorial. (this gave the U.S. a name and a ship to rally behind)
The Japanese managed to destroy 20 American Naval Vessels,including 8 enormous battle ships, and almost 200 airplanes. More than 2,000 American soldiers/sailors died in the attack and over 1,000 were wounded. The day after the attack President Franklin D. Roosevelt asked congress to declare war with Japan and this was the start of World War II for the United States. United States way of revenge was to drop atomic bombs on the Japanese cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August of 1945, these bombs killed over 129,000
Logan Thompson 3rd Hour 3/7/16 The Atomic Bomb When the atomic bomb was dropped the world was changed forever. The Americans dropped the first atomic bomb on the japanese city of Hiroshima and it killed lots people immediately and tens of thousands later from all the radiation. Then after three days there was a second atomic bomb dropped on the city of Nagasaki which killed less but still lots of people. Finally a few day later the Japanese surrendered.
Three days later, Japanese allies Germany and Italy had declared war against the United States of America. Quickly after many Japanese Americans were rounded up and either deported or placed in an internment camp. The way the nation moved was centered around the war from daily lifestyles to themes for movies. America’s view of war quickly changed politically since we first opposed entering the war. It wasn’t until Germany and Italy declared war that America was shoved to enter the European front.

All in all, Pearl Harbor is a devastating battle. It is even the second worst battle in United States followed by the first 9/11.
Throughout history America has had hundreds of transformative events that have changed the course of history through political, economic, and sociocultural effects. The most significant events aren’t the ones everyone remembers for being exciting but rather the ones that have impacted society and individuals the most.

Each event has not only impacted the time period it was set in but also may even still be impacting our lives today. By studying and analyzing America’s history one can learn the struggles and triumphs of a young nation that became the superpower it is today.
