Transcript of WW2 presentation

Stuff before my generation By Andrew Timmins Stephanie Hoyer and Riley Heldenfels But he is best known because on June 28, 1914 he was assassinated by Serbian nationalists, igniting WWI So there was this war... (more formally known as WWI) which started because of... His name is Archduke Francis Ferdinand Later in 1915 as Russians were invading the Ottoman empire, Armenians were moved on a death march On the march over a million died. 5/31-6/1 The Battle of Jutland, between the British Grand Fleet and the German High Seas Fleet was the only surface naval battle fought in World War I. 1917
Tsar Nicholas forced off of the throne
Provisonal government took power
Then Lenins Bolshevik goverenment took power, starting communism On January 8, 1918 Woodrow Wilson presents 14 Points, creating League of Nations, which crumbled due to lack of U.S. involvement. Ending the War? Possibly, but let's be realistic. On June 28, 1919 Treaty of Versailles was created; redrew parts of Europe, went over handling communism, although Russia was left out, and caused post-war bitterness. WWI Well, that was WWI and before anything else happens we are going to take a short intermission. The theme will be Farside. And we're back, except on a less happy note than Farside comics, and now we will be looking into the global depression. 1921- Extreme inflation in Germany, due to the pressure put on Germany by the Treaty of Versailles This is a whole lot of money; converted it's $148,203.26. 1929- Throughout most of the 1920s, the U.S. lent money to struggling European nations to help pay off the war. When they couldn’t repay the U.S., the stock market crashed, catapulting the U.S. into the Great Depression. 1930s- Hitler intervenes in Germany's economy and in 1931 he was sworn in as Chancellor and later President when Hindenburg died. He improved German economy by building up the military, which was a violation of the Treaty of Versailles. Once again we're back in a war... 9/1/1939-German invasion of Poland, the official beginning of WWII. 5/27/1940- Evacuation of Dunkirk, 338,000 troops evacuated by civilians.
12/7/1941- Japan bombs Pearl Harbor, bringing the U.S. into the war; the Axis is probably pretty pissed at Japan. 1942- Battle of Stalingrad, bloodiest battle in history, Germans wanted the oil fields of Caucuses, but were screwed over by the cold. 1943-Surrender of Germans at Stalingrad, 1st major defeat of Germany. 1944- Battle of Normandy, also known as D-Day,156,000 Allied troops stormed the beaches, suprised the Germans, thus making it a success. Beginning of the end for Nazi Germany. 5/8/1945- Germany surrenders, the war in Europe ends. 8/9/1945- Atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki. This was part of an effort to save lives. 8/14/1945- Japan surrenders, the world war officially ended. With the devastation of the islands of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, the Japanese were forced to surrender. 6/22/1941-Operation Barbarossa, the German invasion of Russia violated the non-aggression pact, but the invasion is hurt by the Russian winter. WWII The Great Depression Since you made it through the presentation you have earned this. Enjoy.
