In January 1944 General Dwight Eisenhower was made the commander of Operation Overlord, in the months and weeks before D-Day the Allies carried out a massive deception operation intended to make the Germans think the main invasion target was Pas-de-Calais rather than Normandy. This plan had multiple steps that had to occur chronologically to ensure an Allied victory. Each one of the steps involved in the invasions had different codenames. “The first phase, the amphibious invasion and establishment of a secure foothold, was named Operation Neptune. Second, to gain air superiority, the Allies needed to ensure a successful invasion, the third was where the Allies undertook a bombing campaign known as Operation Pointblank, which targeted German aircraft production, fuel supplies and airfields.

Russia was a communist country and had a goal to expand communism throughout central Europe, but the U.S was a democratic country and the goal of the U.S was to stop the spread of communism. So the USSR had to take action, after the fall of Fulgencio Batista and the rise of Fidel Castro’s campaign for Cuba to be a communist country, they became allies and with the help of Cuba, the USSR were able to transport Middle-ranged Ballistic Missiles for an all out attack on the US. But American actions perhaps suggested a way out for Khrushchev. In 1962 American Jupiter missiles were in Turkey, which were in range to attack soviet targets.
Colbert made the tax collection system more efficient - at the beginning of his tenure in office, only about 10 % of the taxes collected ended up in the royal treasury; the fugure was raised to 85 % (taxes had been "farmed", i.e. were collected by agents who kept a part of them.” Colbert’s plan was to limit foreign industry and focus more in domestic industry to help reduce the debt and bring more money.

Another cause was The Great Depression which left countries with unstable governments and worldwide turmoil. One other cause was Japanese militarism and invasion of China in the 1930s. Another cause of the war as The Treaty Of Versailles which put strong economic sanctions on Germany and extremely restricted their military size and power. This was due to their major involvement in World war I. The United States joined the war in December of 1941 when Japan attacked Pearl Harbour.
Milton Friedman, an esteemed economist, once said that “The Great Depression, like most other periods of severe unemployment, was produced by government mismanagement rather than by any inherent instability of the private economy.” The United States during the 1930’s was in tatters.

Roosevelt came up with a plan to boost the American people from the deep abyss that was the Great Depression : the New Deal. November 1932, proved to be a hopeful time for many Americans, FDR had just been elected and his New Deal promised Relief, Reform and Recovery for

Stalin believes that Poland should not have a democratic government. Poland, under Russian control, will have a Communist government, which unifies Poland all under Stalin. Therefore, Stalin believes that the united government the Western countries want, is accomplished with Communism and taking over countries will unify them all under one ruler.
