World War II
Before World War II broke out the world
took a backseat ride during HitlerÆs rise to power. The entire
world didnÆt think that he would become as influential as he became.
Hitler achieved his power by relying on the navieness of the world to sit
back and allow him to do as he pleased. The world was too concerned
about political, economic and militant unrest to worry about a yelling
German who thought we would rule the world.
Before and during the war, the world was
concerned about the economic system. Since ever since World War I,
the world countries have been in and out of depressions, no one wanted
another costly war. The United States, which was in the Greatest
Depression of all, was deep engulfed in its isolationist policy.
The US didnÆt want war, especially after the last one they fought
with huge causalities and huge amounts of money spent. The citizens
of the US didnÆt want another war because they knew that another
war would cause another depression and that was something that the people
didnÆt want. Even thought the war would create jobs, and put
the economy back into a war boom, the American public didnÆt want
to have to deal with the downsides of a war. The major downside being
the huge economic toll it would take on the government, which would be
fighting on two oceans on different sides of the world. It would
become very costly to maintain war and win too.
The world also had enormous political
concerns. The US was in a period of isolationism and they wanted
no part of anything else in the world, except the Western Hemisphere.
With GermanyÆs rise of Nazism, the world responded with fascist parties
popping up in every nation across the world. Hitler has spread his
beliefs into every county in the entire world, exactly what he wanted.
These parties responded to every action that their leader took, they helped
him scout out a specific country and infiltrate that countryÆs government.
These parties believe in Hitler and did whatever he told them to do, including
in the United States. After the countries realized HitlerÆs
power they all formed different alliances. The GermanÆs allied
with Italy and Japan. The US allied with Great Britain, France, and
the Soviet Union. It seemed as though each day another country would
sign up with either side. Sometimes, even, countries would agree
not to fight each.
The pre-war and during the war, militaries
from all countries fought a war with superior equipment than in the last
war. With the invention of the plane, tank, machine gun spread war
supplies all over the globe and allowed each country to empower itself.
The US prepared for war by passing a series of congressional acts that
enabled the war budget to increase dramatically. These acts also
allowed for the US to help other countries without actually engaging in
the war. The US supplied Great Britain with supplies and ships without
ever declaring war on Germany. GermanyÆs invention of the Blitzkrieg
they attacked nations and conquered them in single days. No nation
had ever seen tactics like this before, and they worked for Hitler.
HitlerÆs air force was the best in the world, he had the most planes
with the best pilots. They were unstoppable. JapanÆs
increase in military power proved itself with the bombing of Pearl Harbor
in December. Japan showed off its massive air force that dominated
and destroyed the majority of the United States Navy fleet.
World War II was a war that brought the
world together. There wasnÆt a place on the earth were this
war wasnÆt fought. There wasnÆt a place on this earth
were people didnÆt take sides, whether with the Allies or the Axis
powers. The war brought countries like the United States and the
Soviet Union together. However, the war did bring mass destruction
the Europe and the massive demise of the people hated by the NaziÆs.
Hitler almost wiped out an entire race; however, he failed because the
on dominance and perseverance of democracy upon the world.
