The European and Pacific Theatre There were many battles in World War II, all of them being important and having different outcomes. Two main theaters we are focusing on are going to be the European Theatre where the Invasion of Normandy took place, along with the Pacific Theatre where the Attack on Pearl Harbor occurred. Both events had major impacts on the outcome of World War II, along with all the other battles we encountered. If ether of these battles turned out differently, America may not have become the amazing beautiful place it is today. The battle of Pearl Harbor occurred early morning in Honolulu, Hawaii on December 7, 1941.
This is also known as the battle of the Bulge. The battle consisted of the loss of about 200,000 soldiers total. Eventually this led to the victory of the Allied forces. Without this siege the Axis powers may have eventually won World War II. Later on the United States plots a plan after s attack on Pearl Harbor.
Battle Analysis of Battle of Normandy Subject: Battle of Normandy in the summer of 1944, between the Allied nations and German forces occupying Western Europe. More than 60 years later, the Normandy Invasion, or D-Day, remains the largest seaborne invasion in history, involving nearly three million troops crossing the English Channel from England to Normandy in occupied France. What was supposed to happen: What Happened: On the night of June 6 more than 5,000 vessels started the came across the English Channel.
D’Day is one of the largest, most deadly invasions of all time. It was the surprise attack on France, It was the attack to change the tide of the war. Before D’Day Germany had complete control of France and most of Europe, D’Day was the Allies’ attempt regain Europe and trigger the fall of the Axis Powers.
On June 6, 1944, the Battle of Normandy began. This day, also known as D-Day, would go down in history for making a tremendous impact on the war. The German and American forces fought hard, inflicting injuries beyond compare (G1). Many people were highly dedicated to fighting for their country, resulting in many lost lives (C1). Many Americans were so determined that they actually swam into German fire to fight on the coast of France (F1).
On May 10, 1940, Nazi Germany began an immense attack against Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and France. Defending those countries were soldiers of the British Expeditionary Force, along with the French, Belgian, and Dutch (Allied) armies. The
Getting to the beach was half the battle because according to Pierre Landry from Juno Beach Centre, “The [English] Channel was rough. Waves, some two metres high, made sailing difficult even at reduced speed” (Landry). In addition to the dreadful weather conditions, the enemy mines and water obstacles caused trouble for the Canadians, which forced the them to heavily rely on their minesweepers and bombardment vessels. The Allies were forced to push their way through Hitler’s defenses on the northern coast of France known as, “ the Atlantic Wall, a 2400-mile fortification of bunkers, landmines, and beach and water obstacles” (D-Day). As a result of the difficulties with the weather and mines, the operation was delayed, which bought more time for the Nazis to regroup and prepare.
Germany couldn’t defend the United States and our allies for many reasons. Germany had put most of their defenses in northern Pas-de-Calais. This is exactly what the Allies wanted though. The Allies had used deception through radio messages and morse code to give Rommel every reason to deploy troops in the wrong places. The German air reconnaissance was also poor on the morning of the attacks.
The war of 1812 was the first declared war. The most often given reason for the war of 1812 was the British impressment of American sailors. They were kidnapped and forced into British servitude. Some of them were actually British sailors working aboard American ships. Some British sailors wanted to pretend or be an American, one of those reasons is that the British at the time were fighting Napoleon. Britain’s impressment policy allowed them both to disrupt American shipping to France and to get new British sailors to make their military stronger (Beyer 6).
This was able to happen when joseph Stalin the Soviet Leader signed the German Soviet Nonaggression Pact allowing Hitler to invade Poland. Poland was taken over rather quickly and according to secret protocol Germany and the Soviet Union divided up control over Poland because of the Nonaggression Pact (“World War Two History”). The six months following the war Germany wasn’t really active resulting in the media referring to it as a “Phony War”, little did they know that Britain and Germany navies were intensely facing off at sea and unfortunately Germany’s U-boats sank 100 Britain vessels in the first four months of the war. German forces invaded Belgium and the Netherlands which was known as “Blitzkrieg” translated as lighting war this happened on May 10, 1940. Only a few days later German troops crossed The Meuse River and attacked French forces at Sedan.
The invasion of Normandy was a successful battle for the allies and a crucial turning point in World War II against Germany. The Allies; Australia, New Zealand, France, Britain, and the U.S. were determined to end the war with Nazi Germany. The Battle of Normandy was very well planned out within the Navy and Army leaders of the allies. The Battle of Normandy was an important battle in Naval History. WWII broke out because Germany was expanding, invading and attacking numerous countries.
Winston worked with his allies Franklin D. Roosevelt and Joseph Stalin to defeat Hitler and the axis powers. Winston’s main strategy that his army from Great Britain and Franklin D. Roosevelt’s army from the United States would attack western Europe and northern Africa. Joseph Stalin's army would attack on the eastern front and try to stop the Nazi’s from invading their home of country of the U.S.S.R.. This plan successfully worked when the German army made one fatal mistake they tried to invade Russia and failed badly when they lost the battle Stalingrad losing many troops and supplies. This battle turned the outcome of the war as Churchill and Roosevelt made a invasion of the normandy coast in France which we now call D day. After that invasion the leaders met one last time at the Potsdam conference to decide what would happen after the allies won the war which at that point they knew they
