Several hours after Truman was given the oath and he had become the new president. Normally when you first become president you get to settle down but not Truman, after only a few meetings with Roosevelt before he died he was not informed about the construction of the atomic bomb. It was probably one of the toughest decisions he had to make in his terms as president and he decided to drop the bomb on Japan.

11 The Cuban Missile Crisis - During the Cuban Missile Crisis, leaders of the U.S. and the Soviet Union engaged in a tense, 13-day political and military standoff in October 1962 over the installation of nuclear-armed Soviet missiles on Cuba, just 90 miles from U.S. shores. I rate this 7 because it was the closest the U.S. and the USSR got into. It could have resulted into a war.

In June 1941, more than 4.5 million german troops from German controlled Poland, Finland and Romania invaded Soviet Russia in a surprise Blitzkreig attack. The soviets suffered heavy losses and the Nazis managed to enter 200 miles into the Soviet Union’s territory within only a week. By December, Moscow was already in the sights of the Germans. However, that was the end of the Germans’ successes in the Soviet Union. The harsh Russian winter had come and the Nazi soldiers could not fight under such harsh conditions.
Harry Truman became the 33rd president of the United States of America, taking over from Roosevelt after his sudden death. Truman was sworn to presidency on April 12th, 1945, only having served 3 months as vice president. Little did Truman know, but he would be the man to make one of the most important decisions in mankind history, about the dropping of the most lethal weapon known to mankind.

Winston Churchill was the Prime Minister of England on May 10, 1940 the same day that the Nazis began invading Belgium, Holland and the Netherlands. Just three days after being elected into office he delivered one of his most famous speeches “Blood, Toil, Tears and Sweat” to the House of Commons. This speech was a basically a war strategy proposal. Winston’s early childhood was what we would call an odd one. He was not a very studious kid and eventually was sent to a military school in hopes to shape him up.

When World War II broke out for the United States in 1941, America was inadequately prepared and quickly the conflict within the conflict became how to provide enough supplies for the American troops. The OPA and American president Franklin D. Roosevelt soon developed a solution in Ration Books, a way to limit the amount of products Americans could consume. Though this put strain on Americans at home, they were willing to compromise for the good of the American troops. The war had been going on for almost 3 years before the US entered the war.

In late September, Willkie began to speed up the race, largely by saying that if FDR won a third term, "you may expect that we will be at war."

The bombing began February 13, 1945 and lasted the duration of two months ending April 17th. Official narratives in comparison to other official narratives, critics differ in the legitimacy and purpose of the attack and the level of destruction.

Virginia later had to retreat because of the Union 's continuous fires. Day three of the Gettysburg battle Lee tried one more attempt to get supplies and win the battle once and for all. Lee would have won if his army wasn 't weak,they had not slept for days and barely had food, leading Lee to his first lose. Gettysburg was one of the most decisive battles ever because they went to Gettysburg looking for food and resources and then came out of the war with 15,000 dead in total.

The thousands of Indians in a month’s, went to hundreds in a weeks, and too few in a days. The federal government forced them to leave their homelands and walk thousands of miles to a specially designated “Indian territory” across the Mississippi River. Some of the natives were crying that they had to leave their homeland, that they had many generations and traditions created. They made the journey to Indian territory on foot some, bound in chains and marched double file without any food, supplies or other help from the government. The natives did not have warm clothes to pass true the cold weather but the settlers were well prepared for the snowy mountains.
