Module 5 DBA
The causes of WW2
There were several long-term causes of World War II were Italian fascism in the 1920s, Japanese militarism and invasions of China in the 1930s, and especially the political takeover in 1933 of Germany by Hitler and his Nazi Party and its aggressive foreign policy. However the immediate cause was Britain and France declaring war on Germany after it invaded Poland in September 1939.
U.S. response during the early years of World War II
At first we were determined to stay out of the war and focus on our country. We were to remain neutral no matter what.
the catalysts that brought the United States into formal involvement in the war

When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor that is when we officially became apart of the war.
the causes and consequences of the attack on Pearl Harbor

Not only was it the reason we got involved in the war it was also the cause of several thousand of American lives lost and a lot of American naval ships to be sunk.
the causes and consequences of the D-Day invasion

The reason for the D-Day invasion was the US military's desire for a decisive showdown with Hitler. The only place that could happen was in Northern Europe. Also by the Spring of 1944 the Russians were pounding in from the East. If the Americans didn't get ashore in Northern Europe in the Spring of 1944 the Russians might be in Berlin by the following spring. The Allies wouldn't even have a seat at the peace talks. The consequences was the destruction of the Third Reich. Hitler had no hope of defending Germany on three fronts.
the strategy of the Japanese and the U.S. military in the Pacific Theater

one major aim was to facilitate capture of the Philippines without interference from the United States Navy. As starving American and Philippine troops fought a hopeless battle against invading Japanese troops between December 1941 and May 1942, any hope of reinforcement by the greatly weakened United States Pacific Fleet was negated by the Japanese Navy's control of the vast stretch of water between Hawaii and the Philippines.
the ways new military technology enabled the United States to fight successfully on multiple fronts

There were many: The Blitzkrieg tactical warfare (lighting war)Radar, and it's underwater cousin, sonar, had a significant impact in countless military battles. There was also the atomic bomb. That is just naming a few.
the impact of the Holocaust during World War II on Jews as well as other groups

Jews were heavily prosecuted and mercilessly killed. Hitler was the main person targeting them due to his anti-sematic beliefs.
the social, political, and economic changes experienced by Americans on the homefront during World War II

Americans faced many changes during the war. There were strict rations on everything including food. Many Americans began growing their own food in order to feed their families. Women took over jobs that were originally only for men.
