November 8, 1942 the day United States military forces with the help of the United Kingdom had launched an operation against French North Africa. The French were holding territories of Algeria and Morocco. The code name Torch it reflected the results of the long and contentious arguments that had gone on between British and American planners about the future course of Allied strategy. There was intervention by Franklin D. Roosevelt in the arguments that finally stilled the arguments between the allies. Torch’s impact was great and enormous through the course of the rest of the war.
Thoe Europe was imperialising africa so was Germany, Portugal, France, Britain, and other countries. The rise of the industry during the Industrial Revolution contributed to imperialism by giving Europe more reasons to invent and control other nations. Europe used imperialism to be the stronger nation and wealthier nation. Europe was taking over Africa for political reasons. The reasons for political was that if you have more land then you 'll have more men for battle and more power.
United Airlines Flight 93 Despite the cockpit recordings implying that the passengers fought, overpowered the terrorist and eventually crashed the plane into the ground, people think that the plane was actually shot down. One reason for this theory is that the actual crash site had very little debris, which showed no evidence of a plane crash. All that was left behind was a big crater. Nevertheless, authorities found some debris 10 miles away from the crash site. Which would support this theory, as if the plane was in fact shot it would have started exploding in the air and debris would have been spreed out by 10 miles.
After securing this area in the Netherlands, the force of northern Germany would weaken, which would allow Allied units to begin to move further into Germany. The British needed more leverage, so the British First Airborne Division, and the United States 101st Airborne Division were dropped into the Netherlands. The Operation needed to be during the day, and the objective was to catch the enemy off guard, and to take control over the bridges in order for the British to cross over. The American general, President Dwight Eisenhower, had made the decision to use Montgomery's strategy. The first reason being the pressure from Eisenhower’s superior in the United States to coordinate and send off a team of highly trained paratroopers.
However, the planes hit so high up in the towers that the towers did not topple over, now if the planes hit lower they would have toppled over. The airplanes are already off to hit the Pentagon in Arlington, Washington, to destroy more of the United States. Now history written in pencil can be erased, but written in crayon can never be changed.
Luckily, these carriers were not in the harbor at the time of this attack, thus escaping the carnage. The news of the attack at Pearl Harbor was broadcasted all across the United States by the radio. The stations interrupted any shows and kept the citizens of America informed about the tragic event that had unfolded that morning. The news of these attacked sent a huge surge of young men, and even some women, to volunteer into the military. On Monday, December eighth, 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt made a speck, asking Congress to declare war on
Hitler had many goals since being a soldier in Germany’s loss of World War 1. One of them was to retrieve some of the lost territories from their disaster in the first world war. He decided to start by attacking Poland. This is when he first tested his tactic, ‘blitzkrieg’. It was designed to cause disorganisation in the enemy.
There were also smaller Aichi D3A1 dive bombers and each of these dive bombers carried a single Type 98 land bomb that weighed 551 pounds, these bombs were designated for specific uses, which use was for the airstrips and air bases around Pearl Harbor. When the dive bombers dropped their bombs they joined the A6M Model 21 Zeros in strafing the ground targets with the machine guns that they had a 20-millimeter cannon. Mitsuo Fuchida was the commander of all the attacks that Japan did to the aircraft over Pearl Harbor. He had a Type 93 Model 3 torpedo bomber, but with this first attack wave happened he was just an observer, he flew down the Eastern coast of the Island of Oahu, then he went West toward Pearl Harbor. The attack on Pearl Harbor had the majority of US fighter planes destroyed by 0800 hours.
base on Tinian Island carrying the massive bomb, Fat Man, which will later be dropped on Nagasaki, Japan. “The Kokura arsenal was the primary target, but it was covered by a heavy ground haze and the bombers couldn’t see the target” (Hiroshima and Nagasaki: 60-years later). The secondary target was the Mitsubishi Torpedo Plant in Nagasaki, Japan. Seventy-four thousand people were killed and seventy-five thousand suffered severe injuries. Nagasaki’s damage was less extensive because the bomb was dropped about two miles off-target.
The trenches were ensured to be constructed in a zig-zag pattern because this design prevented a direct line of fire down a single line, if a trench were to be taken over by the enemy. Many new technological advancements had taken place during WWI, Roden’s letter had described the very minute amount of weaponry that Roden had seen. “Before attacking they used burning liquid on our trenches, and the whole line of trenches were one mass of flames for about 15 minutes. It was a marvel to see how they sent it across. It was worse than gas.” Napalm was a brand new substance that was introduced by the Germans, which was a jelly like substance that could be easily transported and when ignited, would burn ferociously for a long period of time.
They were aiding their allies who were against the Germans. Canadians had two British divisions on their right, and two French army divisions on their left. One British officer remembered, "The Germans held the higher ground and were able to fire into our Allied trenches. "(Ypres 1915) Salient was a dangerous place to defend as it was surrounded on three sides by enemy soldiers and artillery. (Foot) The Canadians and their allies wanted to protect Ypres partly because it offered rail and road links to ports on the coast.
British knew a ton of information about espionage and trained the British agents that did not know , Americans, and Canadians. Camp X was a training camp, a communication center, and more. Camp X was in different parts of Northern America and as the Allies advance they soon became world wide. In North America each camp were different levels. As you rank up the missions got more dangerous.
The British had concealed their facilities from Axis pilots, covering factories to look like empty fields and putting up dummy tanks in empty landscapes. These tanks could be constructed out of balloons, paper, or other material, all painted to give the illusion of large numbers of land units. This was not the first time someone from either side had used dummy tanks. Dummy tanks have a history dating back to World War 1 and the introduction of tanks in modern warfare. Both sides used them to throw off the enemy’s air attacks, hoping they would waste bombs and ammunition on empty fields.
