Article 232 and 233 states that Germany had to pay for all the damage they caused in WWI and the amount was finalized by the other countries. Germany did not want to pay any of the reparations because they did not agree that they should take full responsibility for the war. Angry Germans helped Hitler into power more than before because he stopped all the payments. These articles made the German people angry and yet again look to Hitler for leadership, by looking to him, he made the decision to stop all the payment being made. By ending payments, Germany made what the Treaty of Versailles says was broken and therefore starts to get the countries who are supposed to get money from Germany angry, so now the Treaty of Versailles made Germany angry.
The Americans and the Allied forces had already made Germany surrender in Europe and only Japan stood in the Allied forces’ way for peace. When Japan refused to surrender, President Truman decided to drop two atomic bombs on Japan. Some people argue that it was the best decision available to Truman. “In 1945, fire raids in Tokyo had killed 140 thousand Japanese citizens and had injured many more ”. Therefore, it makes sense that Truman wanted to end the war early and reduce the number of dead
(Lee 154). Stereotypes are a major conflict in today's society also. Today the majority of women are paid less than men. With the exception of Calpurnia, and Miss Caroline the women in To Kill a Mockingbird do not get paid. All women who work today are paid, but not as much as men.
(History in Hiroshima) The meeting between them is very marked by the recriminations and the great suspicions between the Americans and the Soviets. The large Russian armies that were occupying most of Eastern Europe. “Truman and many of his advisers hoped that the United States atomic monopoly might offer diplomatic leverage with the Soviets.”(WWII Part 4) In this way, the explosion of the atomic bomb in Japan can be seen as the first of many shots of the Cold War. (The Hiroshima Bombing) If all US officials really believed that they could use their great atomic monopoly to gain more diplomatic advantage, they had very little time to put their plan into action and do it successfully. In 1949, the Soviets had developed their own atomic bomb and began the nuclear arms
There was prevented air cover from the isolated American units and the thick fog. Mind you this was all in Hitler’s favor; at first the German’s had an assault that was very big. It was across an 80 mile front on the Allied troops. This battle was a total surprise; it was all secretly planned by Hitler. He wanted the invasion to be designed to split the American and British Alliance.
America did not want to be a target for enemy countries. President Franklin Roosevelt called December 7, 1941, "a date which will live in infamy." Japan attacked Pearl Harbor in order to destroy the Pacific fleet so the U.S. would not be able to fight back as they spread across the South Pacific. After Japan attacked Pearl Harbor America joined the war. This single attack killed more
Britain, being an ally of the U.S, sent them the message that they blocked. When the U.S heard of Germany’s plan to turn Mexico against them, their hate for Germany grew stronger. However, Wilson still refused to join the war due to a fear of the economy and his people. Wilson was starting to accept the possibility of war and even began to prepare ships in case of battle. At that point, the United States remained
World War II introduced the most dangerous weapon in the world, the atomic bomb. When the US used it on Japan we went to far and caused unnecessary damage to the people. Many people believe this to the only truth but, the real truth is that dropping the atomic bomb was a necessary evil we had to use in order to win the war in World War II and future wars to come. It save many american soldiers lives, stopped the Soviets from joining, and helped us win against Japan. First and foremost, World War II caused many casualties for both sides of the war.
The alternative for President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his advisors was doing nothing and letting Nazi Germany develop atomic power and going on to use it to conquer the world. The United States of America wanted to end World War II on both the Atlantic and Pacific fronts and needed the quickest possible method to do so. Franklin D. Roosevelt’s advisors concluded that hundreds of thousands of American lives would be lost on an assault on the island of Japan. The U.S. Armed Forces was over 16,000,000 strong and Franklin D. Roosevelt’s main motive for dropping the atom bombs was to save American lives.5 The fact of the matter is World War II was started by the Axis powers which were Germany, Italy and Japan. The Axis powers alone turned Europe upside down.
They have also shown this through World War II by taking their husband jobs as their husband went to war. The women would then work in the factories while providing their own families. This made women feel empowered and helps them to realize their full potential. It may have allowed women to work, but society has made women feel that they are not as equal
The dropping of the bombs were necessary and fair due to the refusal of the Japanese to surrender, the millions of lives saved by a quick end to the war, and the warnings given to the Japanese. To begin, the Japanese soldiers have it ingrained in their brains that it is dishonorable to surrender. The author of Drop the Bomb as agreed by saying that “the Japanese have demonstrated a willingness to fight to the death”. During the war there were many times for the Japanese to surrender, but it was never done. With this in mind, they would have continued to drag out the war, which shows that dropping the bombs sped up the war which lessened the casualties.
