After World War II, American society changed dramatically. One change was the GI Bill. This bill provided for veterans after the war. The benefits to this bill was low-cost mortgages, low-interest loans to start a business, cash payments for college, and one year of unemployment compensation. Another change was the population shift. Many people in the United States started to move to sunbelt states, which describes sunny areas from the southern atlantic coast to California. This population shift was only possible because of advancements in air conditioning, airplanes, and an improved highway system. This was especially the place where seniors loved to go because of the nice weather. The places where the people lived were called Levittowns.
Hitler was the main aggressor during 1939 who everyone appeased to, who is infamously known for his rise to power, his persecution of Jews, and his attacks on the world to dominate, that killed so many. Neville Chamberlain, the British Prime Minister, believed in the policy of appeasement and appeased Hitler at the Munich Conference which eventually lead to the start of World War II. The Western Powers responded to aggression with appeasement, and in 1939 the world was plunged into World War II, proving to the world that collective security is a better response to aggression.
The World War 2 is the most large scale war that had ever happened in the world history. It reflects the cruelest sides of the human beings by killing tremendous amount of innocent people. This war not just brought people’s deaths, but also resulted big financial losses to all countries that had participated in it. Many people had to spend most of their time in the underground, apart from the sun, because it was the only place that was considered to be safe. Some of them gave up their hopes, while others cried out for current safety, other than tomorrow’s smile. They might die the next day, or a second later, this fear crushed them down and made them tremble and burst into tears. Fathers, boyfriends, and brothers left their lovings behind and headed to the bloody zone with firm and cold face. They attached their nation’s flags on their hearts and confronted the enemies with murderous weapons, not knowing that their enemy might also be one of the people who were forced to leave their families. Men had to kill the other men unwillingly. August 15, the seventieth anniversary of the World War 2, is coming up and it reminds people the history of this war. Even though, it has been seventeen years from the end of the World War 2, the fact about its existence still alarms people about
The early Transportation Revolution had a lot to do with this. The Transportation Revolution was a series of transportation innovations that linked local and regional markets, creating a national economy. New inventions such as the steam boat, perfected by Robert Fulton in 1807, created a major boost in domestic trade; this majorly implemented the economy. Also, the Lowell factory system created a way of employment in women and children, helping households by having another source of income, and helping the economy by providing a fairly cheap way to get more factory-made goods that were in high demand. The reason for this continuity is the way these movements created a more stable economy for the country.
World war one was one of the most gruesome wars in all of humanity's history. It was caused by four major factors. First was the aggressive nationalism of each country, second was the the intense love for militarism by each nation, third was the making of alliances between nations in case of war, finally the event that caused a declaration of war was the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand. This all led to a four year was that included the world's biggest military powers to go against one another. One of these powers that fought in the war is the United States of America. The United States had entered the war during its final year, which was consequently caused by the zimmerman note and killing of Americans on the Lusitania U-Boat by
Prior to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, most of the nation was made up of farmers. After the time of the industrial revolution, things started to change. For example, more people moved to cities and urban areas. Instead of most of the nation being comprised of farmers, there were more job

World War 2 and its Effect on American Society The 1930’s witnessed the rise of aggressive, totalitarian regimes. After World War 1, Germany became a fascist state under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, Mussolini started to gain political control of Italy, and Imperial Japan became ever more aggressive to its Asian neighbors.

The Second War began when the Spartan King Archimedes II laid siege to the city of Plataea. The Athenians were able to hold their position until 427 B.C.E., when the city fell. During that time, a revolt by the Spartans as taking place at Mytilene, which put additional pressure on Athens. While they defended and successfully extinguished that revolt, the Athenians made additional progress into Peloponnese, by sea, as well as Italy, by land. Athens’ success eventually ended when they were defeated in an attempt to recover Amphipolis in 422 B.C.E. They signed the “Peace of Nicas” in order to maintain a sense of pride and to refrain from losing allies, and in 429 B.C.E., when Pericles died, Nicias succeeded him.
The progressive reform that had the greatest impact on American society was the 18th Amendment which made the producing, transporting, or selling of alcohol prohibited. It all began when the Anti-Saloon party gained an advantage during World War I. Women who began these reforms gained support because of their influence on the workforce. If the women had not helped by working men’s jobs during the war, it would not have been as easy. Another aspect of the war that contributed to the amendment's publication was the limited resources available. Since alcohol was made of food sources, many saw it as a waste of food supply that could have been used for “our boys at war”. Also, those who were a part of the reform wanted to prohibit alcohol because
After WWII, society took a drastic change for the better in America. America had just gone through the Great Depression, which was the deepest decline in America’s whole history and everyone was affected. Numerous people lost their jobs and were no longer able to afford basic necessities like a house, food, and water. Many could no longer support their families and had nothing. This was all in result of the market crashing, sending the economy into a downward spiral. Shortly after, WWII came around and it pulled the economy back up by providing jobs for people. Not only did it provide jobs, but it also changed the way people lived and the ideas of consumerism. People now had more money to spend on things they wanted, rather than barely being able to afford necessities. The transformation of American society after WWII can be seen through suburbanization, the GI Bill, the automobile, effects of consumerism on society
There are a a lot of events that led to the beginning of World War II. But, a lot of the events leading to World War II were a direct result due to World War I.
