US weapons:
Artillery

ships and trucks.
Japan wanted to take over all of East Asia, because they thought that Western countries were becoming too powerful. They eventually allied with Germany and Italy to form the alliance called "Axis".
-War Guilt Clause
Germany would accept blame for starting World War One.
In the beginning many people wanted to volunteer to be in the army, this was because of Pearl Harbor. And everybody wanted to fight the Japanese.

- the nazis and the japaneese where bombing people

By 1943 the US began to draft any able bodied man between 18 and 40; this expanded all branches of the American army, the navy, the marines.

As a cause of the war the army created new training facilities at Fort Benning, Fort Bragg, Fort Sill, and Fort Hood. By 1945 rolled around about 17million Americans had served in the army.

To these lots new solders their last moments of happiness would be in New York before they were shipped to Europe to fight.
Crossing the ocean was a very difficult, because of German U-boats, but since us troopships started traveling with armed vessels, only 8000 troops died crossing the ocean (Out of 4 million).

In 1942 the tide began to turn against the opposing forces, the Battle of Midway was the greatest American victory, forcing the Japanese out of offensive war action.

However defeating the finest fighting force in the war, the German sixth army, rendered the Nazis rarely able attack, since they were so severely decreased in size.

When Eisenhower was appointed supreme commander of the allied crusade in Europe, the US army was to be much better organized. After being elected Eisenhower set to work panning an assault on the Nazi Atlantic Wall, which we now know as D-Day.

Summary:
In retrospect the United States was the real winner in world war two, because we suffered so few casualties and there was almost no fighting on US soil and our economy benefited greatly from manufacturing, and we gained superior military power.
