But it did not stop him helping out his country. The public did not see him as a handicapped man. They saw him as a strong and optimistic man. He attended many events despite his paralyzed legs. During WW2, he wanted to help the Allied powers but Congress wanted to focus on domestic problems rather than foreign. Eventually, the U.S had no choice when it got bombed by Japan in 1941. Roosevelt was the only president that served three terms as president. In fact, he was going to serve four terms but he was cut short because he passed away on April 12, 1945. Unfortunately he never saw the end of the war but it ended the same year in September.
Adolf Hitler & Benito Mussolini
Hitler and Mussolini were on the Axis powers in WW2. Italian Mussolini wanted the historical Roman Empire to resurface while Hitler just wanted to rule the world. Both of people were dictators. He did not start the war but was a cause of it. There was a lot of nation tensions unsolved conflicts and bitterness from other countries. But these two not what you called civilized. They were
people. Their philospghy was that
Concentration Camps
Concentration camps were first started by Adolf Hitler in 1933. He once said "When I came to power, I did not want the concentration camps to become old age pensioners homes, but instruments of terror." These camps had Jews , Gypsies, homosexuals and other people. These people were despised by Hitler and German Nazi soldier.They were mainly judged by their looks and religions. People there had to sleep in small .

Churchill was on November 30th, 1874 into a wealthy family. He grew up to love history and be part of it too! became Great Britain's prime minister in 1940, a year after WW2 started. Churchill was known as a war leader. He was a strong leader aided countries like Greece even though they were doomed for failure. He was a stubborn yet determined to win the war. When France surrendered, Great Britain kept fighting. Where he went to visit towns or villages, he always had a V like hand gesture which stood for victory. He tried his best to bring positive sprits to people that were on the Allied side. He, Roosevelt, Stalin were the Big Three countries that became allies during the war. Churchill was very tenacious on getting aid from the United States but was rejected multiple times mainly because it wanted to focus on domestic issues. But
In the beginning, it was just France, Great Britain, China, and other countries that sided with the Allies because they too did not want Hitler to control their country. France was easily defeated by Germany in 1940. As years went by more and more countries joined. But the most important one was the United States. It boosted the allied power's chance of winning the wars. With three of the most powerful countries in the world, the Allied powers were bound to win. 27 countries were on the Allies whereas the Axis had 9.
