There are many reasons why World War II started. To put into a big category, the main cause of the war is the first world war. The countries reluctantly signed the Treaty of Versailles, also known as the Peace of Paris, because it did not satisfy any country (History.com, 2009). After World War I, many countries were indebted and economically poor; this is known as the Great Depression.
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
H.G Wells said, the Great War was supposed to be “the war to end all wars”; ironically enough a few years later a second world war broke out due to Germany feeling like the Treaty of Versailles treated them unfairly and the League of Nations having little to no power. World War II started on September 1. 1939 and ended nearly six years later on September 2, 1945. The war was long and bloody with nearly sixty million civilians and soldier casualties combined (according to nationalww2museum.org). There were five major turning points in World War II.
The world at war, a phrase uttered only two times in the entire history of mankind. A phrase that symbolizes that the world’s powers are on the brink of collapse and that the future of mankind is at risk of complete destruction. This was never more the case than during the second world war when the Allied powers, the United States, Great Britain, France, along with several other cobelligerents, took on the Axis powers of Germany, Italy, and the Empire of Japan. The Axis powers were led by the German war machine, better known as the Nazi Empire. It complete desperation the Allied powers took all of their combined power in the Mediterranean Sea, and collectively decide to
World War II was one of the biggest conflicts in the history of the world. It was a conflict between the Allies — Britain, American, and France — and the Axis Powers — Germany, Italy, and Japan. America entered the war in 1941 when the Japanese surprise attack our naval base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. At the start of the conflict, the 32nd President, Franklin D. Roosevelt, was our Chief in Command that had just let the nation through one of its most trying times, the Great Depression. In 1942, Roosevelt began a top secret project led by Robert J. Oppenheimer. The Manhattan Project was started in fears that Nazi Germany was going to create the ultimate weapon, powered by the natural forces of fission. As President and wartime Commander, Roosevelt
1939 marked the start of World War II in Germany, quickly spreading throughout Europe. Germany, Italy, and Japan made enemies with the United States, England, and France, who became known as the Allied Forces. The war was initiated by the actions of German dictator, Adolf Hitler, whose goal was to conquer the world for his own personal gain. Hitler was a communist who had the unique ability to persuade nations into joining him in his beliefs and actions, which resulted in the deaths of millions of people for their religious views and cultures. The United States remained neutral from 1939-1941. However, they showed their hand by selling military weapons, strengthening their military, and selling goods to other countries. Meaning,
In 1939, war broke out between two forces, the Axis and the Allies. The Axis included the countries Germany, Italy, and Japan, but this alliance was more of a political relationship. Those included in the Allies alliance were the US, France, Britain, and the Soviet Union. Their relationship in a way was political, but they could depend on the other states in the Allies group whenever they need help. Germany attacked Poland, however President Roosevelt didn’t pay any attention to it until Germany’s leader, Adolf Hitler, encouraged Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. The attack on Pearl Harbor caused a great deal of damage and enraged the Americans. We were in need of soldiers because the ones who were guarding or working at Pearl harbor were either
It has been debated if Hitler or the Allied forces started World War II. The Allied forces started World War II because they could have stopped Hitler. The Allied forces were made up of Great Britain, France, the Soviet Union, the United States, and China. They allowed Hitler get away with more than he should have been able to. Hitler disobeyed the Treaty of Versailles, and was allowed to succeed at the Munich Conference. Although the main causes revolved around Hitler, and he caused many of the problems, the Allied nations could have stopped him in different situations.
Over two and a half million civilians were evacuated for their safety during The Second World War (The Evacuation). Children were being evacuated, and families were separated because of the violence in the war. The fighting began in 1939, and it lasted until 1945. The two sides in the conflict were the Axis powers with Germany, Italy, and Japan and the Allied forces with Britain, China, the Soviet Union, and the United States. World War II affected not only soldiers but also the commoners. The war increased women’s work, caused children to evacuate, and affected British soldiers’ families.
The Holocaust was one of the worst events to ever happen to mankind. It was started by the Fuhrer of Germany, Adolf Hitler. He thought that the Aryan race was superior to every other race. He had a massive hatred for the Jewish race and decided to try and exterminate every living Jewish person. He killed around two-thirds of all the European Jews (Byers 10). World War II was going on at the same time as the Holocaust. The Allied forces, which included The United States of America, the Soviet Union, and Great Britain, were fighting the Axis Powers, which consisted of Germany, Italy, and Japan. (Mackay 4-5). The Holocaust is a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in Europe by being sent to live in ghettos and eventually being deported to concentration camps where they were systematically annihilated until the Allied forces liberated the remaining survivors.
“The Great War” was the craziest, bloodiest and massive war that changed the world. During the time period of 1914 to 1918 this is when WWI took place. There were many causes that occurred to start “The Great War”. Countries throughout Europe made mutual defense agreements that would pull them into the war. Imperialism increases a countries power and wealth by bringing additional territories under their own control. Africa and parts of Asia were points of contention among the European countries. 1914 Germany had the greatest increased military buildup. Germany and Russia’s military establishments began to have a greater influence on public policy. The allied powers in WW1 Britain, France, Italy, US and Russia. The Central powers were Germany,
It is the year 1918 and I am still living with my dad, mom, sister, brother, and my Labrador Retriever. The Great War or The War to End All Wars just ended a few days ago. My family and I live in St. Louis, Missouri. The war has affected everyone in the world more than likely. I know it has affected everyone here in the United States. This war started in 1914 and lasted until a few days ago. It started right after Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated. The military technologies and the horrors of trench warfare made unique levels of destruction and extermination. There were many countries involved in this war like Bulgaria, Italy, Germany, France, and the United States. There were two groups: The Central Powers and the Allied Powers.
World War 1 was centered in Europe. The nations in war were divided into two groups: "The Central Powers" and "The Allied Powers." The central power group consisted of Germany, Austria, Hungary, Turkey, and Bulgaria. The allied power group consisted of France, Britain, Russia, Italy, Japan, and the US (as of 1917). Many people fled from and headed to. They did this for their and their family 's lives. Many little factors led up to World War 1, but the main reason was the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo on 28 June 1914. It was estimated that there were 17 million deaths, 21 million injured, and 7.7 million missing or imprisoned.
World war 2 was a phenomenon conflict that involved virtually every part of the world. It lasted for 6 years and 3 days (1939-1945). It was divided into two groups axis and allies. The 40,000,000–50,000,000 deaths incurred in World War II made it the bloodiest conflict, as well as the largest war, in history. 6 millions of those passings were the Jews who were murdered by the Nazis; this mass murder is called the Holocaust. The Holocaust was an egregious event lead by revenge driven Hitler and the Nazis; this odious event still leaves incessant impact on the world.
World War 2 was the most crucial war that has ever occurred in history. It involved the most vicious dictators that caused lots of deaths from around the world. Those two dictatorial leaders were, Adolf Hitler of the Nazis party in Germany and Joseph Stalin of the communist party in the Soviet Union. Both leaders were seeking to control the world with the power that they had. Stalin and Hitler were both fearful and controlling dictators, but they both ruled two different countries in two different parties.
