Even more anger formed from the fact that japanese prison camps were notoriously cruel to the prisoners incarcerated therein. 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
(History 2014) The Germans started sinking more and more supplies ships. During WWI Germany had sank a cruise ship sinking 128 American Civilians demonstrating their new U-boat submarine powers. With Germany 's unrestricted naval warfare against the U.S. supply ships the U.S. started escorting them with battleships and once the war started they began sinking the germans naval
That is when it all happened, early Sunday morning of December 7, 1941. Paul K. Davis stated in his article, “Not until the bombs began to fall did the Americans respond” (Davis). 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.
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. Japan sent a message saying that they declared war 30 minutes before the attack, but the message was hard to decode and it took about 2 hours (The Glider Institution of American History, 2009). Japan wanted to send the message saying that they have declared war on the US, before the attack. This attack reminds me a lot of the terrorist attack in New York, 9/11.
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.
This stunning assault brought about the deaths of 2400 Americans, with about 1200 harmed, around 200 aircraft vehicles pulverized, and various ship vessels, warships, and destroyers sunk or harmed. 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
