They completed their desire and made themselves look strong (at the moment) and killed many Americans. But in the end, the United States went and declared war on Japan, and the United States had won the WWII war. Japan may have looked strong for a while and they may have had Germany and Italy as their allies, but the United States came back with Great Britain, France, and Russia. So, in all, there is an agreement with President Franklin D. Roosevelt that they day Pearl Harbor attack will be “a day which will live in infamy” and hopefully the readers agree as well, and received the answers to the questions they had on why Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. An interesting fact is two of the battleships were eventually repaired that they were able to return to the U.S. Navy’s fleet, these two resurrected battleships were the U.S.S West Virginia and the U.S.S California and they completely sank, but they were repaired and
The effect that Blitzkrieg had on modern warfare is enormous, no longer would armies sit in trenches for months, no longer would soldiers die for little to no gain, the new blueprint of modern warfare was printed when the Germans unleashed this fast and effective tactic on the world. How was Blitzkrieg and the strategy employed in WW2 changed modern warfare? Mechanized machines played a big part in the changing of the guard, tanks, fast attack Humvees were deployed to soften up the enemy lines, making trench warfare obsolete, and is similar to how we fight our battles today. Another component was air dominance, German dive bombers harassed the enemy, creating mass destruction and confusion, once the bombers were done, the infantry and tanks would move in quickly, very similar to how most tactics today are
Additionally, in the article “Axis Powers” the author declares,“During the war a number of other countries joined the Axis, induced by coercion or promises of territory or protection by the Axis powers….connections among the Axis powers were strengthened by a full military and political alliance”(Axis Powers). This shows that the countries in the Axis powers aided the Nazi party with their military and other provisions during the Holocaust. Moreover, this shows that Hitler needed the help of other countries to build a bigger empire and kill millions of Jews. To summarize, the Axis powers aided Hitler for their own gains during the
When we think about drone or UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), first thing comes to our mind is; frightening, alien looking unmanned aircraft that has been involved with so many bombings and targeted killings. In “Drone Home: What Happens When Drones Return to America”, from Time, Lev Grossman wrote drones are dreaded all around the globe, and possibly they have gotten this fear through the United States Military. Drone technology has been greatly improved last decade, now third of entire Air Force’s fleet is unmanned. U.S Government is sending drones to many war zones to eliminate high-ranking enemies or do surveillance successfully. Even though this rapidly growing technology is changing our perspective of war, it also changing our everyday life drastically to help our community.
According to the same article, the first con was they made an arms race. When other nations realized that the US held this type of power, they were coerced to develop their own in an arms race. The second con was destruction of cities. The cities had already been completely destroyed from the war’s fire bombings, so many people believed the use of the atomic bomb was unnecessary. The Us spent $2 billion for the atomic bombs development.
They would try anything if only they didn’t have to fight anymore. In one instance, they went so far as to bomb their own base and every pilots’ greatest wish was to never run another mission again. This difference may stem from the fact that in one movie they were actual soldiers while in the other they patched up the soldiers that were injured. I believe it is a mix of both reasons, and perhaps the longer bloodier war created a greater want to escape. While the differences were sparse between the two films, the similarities were abundant.
Richard Gatling invented the gun in the hopes that a weapon so catastrophic in its damage would convince men to stop waging war. Unfortunately, its efficiency in killing only made war more deadly. ‘It saw only limited use in the Civil war” (Doc 3). The production of guns, bullets,and other materials were crucial in the war, but the how quickly the materials got to the North and South was very important. The Northern railway system was way more effective to the existing railways in the South.
The U.S had a massive lead in technology which helped them win the war against Japan. In conclusion of this war, World War 2 was the most destructive war in world history. Technologies in weapons, transportation, communications and medical developed at a faster rate than the military strategies and planning. Nationalism was certainly a part of this, particularly by the Germans and Japanese, but also affecting the Soviet and the American actions. Because of the development of technologies, the death toll of world war 2 was 4 times more than world war 1.
-Blitzkrieg, advancements in mass destructive weapons In terms of WWII, the strategies and technology are more advanced than WWII. The new battle strategy of Blitzkrieg prevented the slow attrition war that happened in WWI. Besides, the new kinds of gases made the battles more deadly, also helped to kill the Jews in the concentration camps in a relatively high efficiency. Blitzkrieg Blitzkrieg is an important war strategy that was applied by Nazi Germany. This word itself is the German term of “lightning war”, but it had not been known by the German army till 1939, when the war began.
These bombs made them have a desperate need to end the war. In return, it saved American lives by preventing an overwhelming invasion. Conclusion To conclude, the atomic bomb instilled a fear of American retaliation in foreign countries, prevented a World War III , and saved millions of Allied soldiers’ lives that would have been lost through an invasion. The bomb was critical to ending the war. The Japanese refused surrender without a major turning point in the war.
