Transcript of World War II

World War II
By: Nate Salts

World War II
Essential Questions
1: Why were the Germans so quick to believe Hitler?
2: Why did the U.S. join the war?
3: What was the most important battle in the war and why was it important?
The war truly started when the Germans invaded Poland. The U.S. was very strictly neutral for the first 3 years of the war because we didn't have a strong army and didn't want to be part of the war. We had to join the war when the Japanese bombed the naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
Most say that D-Day, which was a famous battle, was the most important day in world war II, and I would agree with them. After D-Day the Germans had the allies hot on their heels. As the Germans were retreating through Europe, the rapid advance of the allies was too much for the Germans and they had to surrender.
Clips and articles
The Germans believed Hitler's lies because they were in so much debt from the previous World War. They needed someone to look up to, so they chose Hitler. They also needed someone to blame, so they blamed the Jewish community.

World War II vs. World War I
Lives lost(U.S.)=WW II - 405,399 vs WW I - 116,516
Total deaths= WW II - 60 to 85 million vs WW I - 15 million
Cost of war= WW II - 4,104 billion vs WW I - 334 billion
Conclusion: World War II was a much worse war in these terms.
