Promised a common front against communism Knitting socks for soldiers Growing vegetable gardens working in aircraft, and bomb factories Issued for military Making patriotic films Alliances created through Hitler This happened because more and more men were called up to serve in the forces so women were called upon to take over the jobs that were traditionally done by men.

Everyone was given a book of 66 coupons to use to buy new clothes for one year. This was cut to 48 in 1942 and 36 in 1943. Each item of clothing cost a certain number of coupons.

The German army was on the more defensive side. The majority of their tactics consisted of clever defensive positions defending against the British, Americans, or Russians. With this tactic the German army featured frequent counter attacks that are still useful today. This was to soften up the defense is. The units required for this tactic were German rifle squad and machine guns, German AA also known as anti air, German infantry defense, and German artillery. Countries Involved Blitzkrieg Blitzkrieg means lightning war. This tactic was based on speed, surprise, coordination, and movement. Its name design was to hit hard and move on instantly. The Germans were the first to use this tactic in World War 2. This tactic was developed in Germany by an army officer called Hans Guderian. Once a strategic target has been selected, bombers were sent in to soften up the enemy. As the tanks were moving forward the plains withdrew only at the last minute so the enemy did not have time to recover their senses when the tanks attacked supported by infantry. After a target has been destroyed the Germans did not take time for a victory dance they commenced the attack immediately. Isolationism
