Some results from America 's involvement in the war were the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the loss of 407,300 American soldiers. With that many americans dying America wanted the war to come to an immediate end, the solution was the atomic bomb. America created a total of three of the bombs one for a test firing the other two were used on two different cities in Japan, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, killing 225,000

The Americans were still asleep when the Japanese decided to attack us and bomb our ships. The attack on Pearl Harbor was one of the most tragic days in our countries history. In 1939, World War II began in Europe. Germany and Japan were both on the rise to power.
On December 7th, 1941 Japan held its first major victory against the United States. Japan attacks the main U.S Navy Base at Pearl Harbor. In less than the two hours the enemy was there 20 American naval vessels and 300 airplanes were destroyed. One thousand Americans were wounded and more than two thousand American soldiers and sailors were killed. The day after the attack President Roosevelt and Congress declared war on Japan.
I believe that the bombing of Pearl Harbor was not a terrorist attack, but an act of war. This killed 2000 people and left 1000 wounded. According, Attack on Pearl Harbor. USA People, Pearl Harbor was the deadliest attack on American soil until the September 11 attack.

Pearl Harbor was the main naval base in the Pacific Ocean for the United States and this event was a warning of even worse events coming. On this same day, the British Colony of Hong Kong was laid siege by Japan. This day also brought one of the highest rates of casualties for Canadian soldiers in the whole Second World War. 5. a. How easy or difficult would your life have been if you survived the Siege of Hong Kong?
The sinking of the Lusitania was not caused by a natural disaster, but was purposefully sunk in spite of a war. The Lusitania was one of the most famous shipwrecks in history, other than the Titanic, because it was the start of the World War I. America has definitely gone through the worst of times. What is so great about America, though, is that everyone unites together to fix a problem. Many passengers arrived for a relaxing, wonderful cruise but found themselves thrown into chaos as a torpedo entered the ship. This caused America to help out in the war by lending Britain equipment, soldiers, and jobs during this tough time.
World War Two is the second spot on my list. I think this because it was one of the biggest wars of the century. Most of the world has participated in this war or at least heard about it before. It all started from Hitler. Then they were all fighting then the U.S started and China was towards the ending.
The Battle of Berlin was one of the most important battles of the Second World War, as it was the one where the German army of Nazis had officially been defeated, Hitler killed himself, and Germany surrendered. It marked the end of the Second World War in Europe, and the division of Germany 's land to the Allies. It was also one of the bloodiest battles in human history, with approximately 81 000 Soviet casualties, and 92 000 German casualties. There were also 280 000 Soviets wounded, and 220 000 German 's wounded. The battle left the city of Berlin in complete ruin, leaving over one million Germans without a home, clean water, or food.
Japanese losses included 64 dead from perilous kamikaze assaults. The goal of the assault on Pearl Harbor was to retain Japan's progression into Singapore and the Dutch East Indies as the US maritime armada would be disabled and unable to
World War II was one of the biggest conflicts in the history of the world. It was a conflict between the Allies — Britain, American, and France — and the Axis Powers — Germany, Italy, and Japan. America entered the war in 1941 when the Japanese surprise attack our naval base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. At the start of the conflict, the 32nd President, Franklin D. Roosevelt, was our Chief in Command that had just let the nation through one of its most trying times, the Great Depression. In 1942, Roosevelt began a top secret project led by Robert J. Oppenheimer.
On December 7, 1941, the empire of Japan launched a surprise attack on the American harbor at Hawaii known as Pearl Harbor, along with several other American provinces in the Pacific such as Guam and the Philippine islands. This vicious attack on American soil pulled America into the second World War [one of the most destructive and bloody wars the world remembers today]. Millions of young men enlisted into the Armed forces, one of them being Kurt Vonnegut at the age of 20. What Kurt Vonnegut did not know was that he was going to end up as a prisoner of war. Kurt Vonnegut’s experiences during this time in the hands of the Germans gave him a new outlook on the brutal conditions of warfare, the neglect that veterans were given after World War
The war was a very costly fight and in the 60s, we had almost 500,000 men in Vietnam at the time (history.com). The war began when America thought that communism was spreading throughout Asia. The cold war was going on, and America did not want to take any chance of communism spreading. The war was not only was the longest fought by America, but it also gave a glimpse to the American people. It was the first war ever where they had footage of the battlefield and the war was often documented on television.
Humanity’s Crucible World War II, which ended in September of 1945, left Europe in physical, spiritual, and diplomatic chaos and ruin. Due to new military technologies and the evolution of combat strategies, The Second World War, which was spawned by the bitter legacy of the First World War and its Treaty of Versailles, was a brutal conflict regarded by the Allied victors as a complete atrocity. Yet, despite that the major Allies—America, Britain, France, and Russia—agreed that the main perpetrators of the war—Germany—should be punished, each country disagreed heavily on how to accomplish that monumental and solemn task. After compiling evidence through individual prosecution teams and examining historical precedents, the Allied nations set
The Story of Peace John Winthrop once said, “Love to God and our brother, and this latter having continual supply from Christ, as the head and root by which he is united, gets predominant in the soul, so by little and little expels the former”(Winthrop, 5). When one looks back on the society that John Winthrop created and compares it to today’s society, one can evidently see the massive change that has occurred between the two societies. They can also conclude that today’s society no longer follows the heavenly laws that Winthrop followed because as he once stated, one should have love for their fellow brother, not hate or betrayal. Yet today, Americans find themselves at war with countries that were once allies, contradicting Winthrop's humble
