Transcript: WWII By:Elizabeth Goberdhan AGENDA AGENDA Life in America Conflicting Countries Conclusion Life in America Life in America Although the fighting in World War II was overseas, the war changed the lives of everyone in the country. It united the people of America as they strived for a common goal of surviving the war. Moreover, World War II brought the people of America out of the Great Depression. Many factories in America, began to produce war supplies and weapons for their country's soldiers. This caused men and women's fashion to change because less supplies were used for making goods that clothes were made previous to this time. Clothing Clothing Shoulder pads became popular as it showed a disciplined military look which many young men yearned to have. Men's Fashion Men's Fashion Girdles, which were used prior to this, became less worn because rubber, the main material of girdles, were needed for the war effort. The 2-piece bathing suit was introduced because fabric production was reduced. Shorter shoe heels, flats, and open toed shoes became more common for women because they wanted comfortable footwear in their workplace. Skirts were made shorter as fabric was needed fo the war effort. Women's Fashion Women's Fashion Pictures Pictures 2-piece bathing suit Women's shoes during ww2 Women during WWII wearing short skirts Songs during the WWII Era were mostly sad and had a common theme of war. The songs made many people in America of aware of the action of the war. This is because the war was fought in Europe and not in the American homefront so people could not envision how the war was for the young men in the army. Music Music "G.I. Jive" by Johnny Mercer "Lili Marlene" by Marlene Dietrich "You'll Never Know" by Dick Haymes "Wonder When My Baby's Coming Home" by Jimmy Dorsey and Orchestra Famous Songs Famous Songs During the Swing Era,which was at the same time period as World War II, many dances became popular. Some examples are the the Lindy Hop, Balboa, Jitterbug, and the Charleston. Popular Dances Popular Dances Pictures Pictures The Lindy Hop The Balboa (Bal-Swing) The Jitterbug The Charleston Because of the war, many products were in short supply. This is because products were needed by the soldiers to ensure that they would have good health and be able to protect the country. Some goods rationed were fabric, tires, sugar, meat, butter, and coal. Rationed Goods and Stamps Rationed Goods and Stamps Every family in America would receive ration stamps. These stamps allowed a family to buy a certain amount of a type of product. Ration Stamps Ration Stamps Pictures Pictures Women played a major role in American society during World War II. Since many men joined the army, factories needed people to work in the factories. Because of this, women stepped up and worked in the factories in order to keep the economy going. Moreover, many women became nurses in the army. This was a big change from the previous times; before this, women took on a domestic role. Role of Women Role of Women Pictures Pictures Nurses for the army "Rosie the Riveter" Women working in a factory Relationships changed in WWII because many men joined the army and wanted something that they felt was worth fighting for in the war. In a response to this, many men and women married at a young age before a short time before the men would leave for the army. Relationships Relationships Many teenage boys around the age of 18 enlisted to join the army in America. Usually the ones who enlisted were looking for adventre and escape from the life they were living in and saw they war as a way out of their hardships. Propaganda, such as Uncle Sam, was used in order to convince many young men to join the army. Because of this, there was many young men in the army of America in WWII. Enlistment Enlistment Conflicting Countries Conflicting Countries The conflicting sides in WWII were the Allied Powers and the Axis powers. Allied Powers vs. Axis Powers Allied Powers vs. Axis Powers The Allied Powers won World War II. Although the fighting in World War II was overseas, it still greatly affected all American lives. The conflicting sides were the Allied powers and the Axis powers. Many young men joined the army to seek adventure. Moreover, they married young so they would have a personal reason to keep on fighting. The clothing industry was affected because rationing caused there to be a small quantity of the materials which was used. Rationing was done in order to ensure that supplies would be given to the soldiers and the people of America would have enough to survive. Music was affected by WWII because the music was a propaganda which helped people evision how the war was for the soldiers. Popular dances, such as the Lindy Hop, emerged and brought the nation hope. The role of women changed as the men who worked in factories joined the war effort so many women started to work and do jobs that only men were supposed to have. Conclusion Conclusion

Technology used in the war Snapshots Of Canada In The Second World WAR Treaty of Versailles War On The Home Front Indirect Cause War Propaganda one of the very powerful technology was the v2 rocket. The rocket was incredibly fast and you could not hear it coming. The v2 rocket destroyed many towns and included lots of deaths. Genocide means a race are killed there or put to slavery. At nazi death camps they had jews, communists, teachers, artists, protestant and catholic. All of the people sent to the camps were either worked to death or were used as guinea pigs. The Battle Of Dieppe Holocaust The message of this poster is that we need to keep on fighting until the Germans are not going to attack us any more. The poster is talking to all Canadians from 18 to 45 year of age. The pictures are used to illustrate how well we are doing or what we need to do to keep scum out of our country. This poster is effective because it is saying that we can win the war but we need you to keep on coming. The treaty of Versailles weakened the germans, and humiliated them . The Canadians took all of there resources. The battle of Dieppe was a very hard battle, and they had to take over the beach. The only way they could help out Russia wile they were all alone. The out come was that we got the beach but there were 5,000 canadian casualties.

Transcript: WWII Presentation The Czech Crisis of 1938 evolved out of resistance from the Czech government after Hitler offered protection for the country. The Czech wished to be independent and defend themselves; however, the border between Germany and the Czech was called the Sudetenland, and home to many who wished to become part of the german empire. Hitler wished to foster an uprising in the Sudetenland in order to weaken the Czech military and take over. France and the USSR held promises to assist the Czech but it was clear they would not uphold their agreements. Invasion of France Britain France and the soviet union were unable or unwilling to assist the Czech when Germany claimed the Sudetenland as German territory and furthermore when Germany Invaded the rest of Czechoslovakia. The terms of the Munich Pact were supposed to guarantee the Czech allied help, but these promises were never kept. The Invasion of Poland by Colby Decoteau The Battle of Britain The Invasion of the Soviet Union Operation Overlord After the Invasion of Poland Germany and Allied forces went through months of talks and threats referred to today as the Phony War; however this did little to deter Germany. In May of 1940, Germany invaded France in a successful attack defeating French defending forces. The Germans came in such force that the British troops retreated to England leaving France on it's own. The Battle of Britain transpired over the English channel as the Royal Air Force defended England from the Luftwaffe or german Air Force as they both fought for air supremacy. Although the British had fewer planes the invention of Radar gave them a huge advantage in early warning and preparedness allowing the RAF to successfully maintain control over British air space. Operation Barbarossa was the leading attack on the Soviet Union by german forces. The massive attack was well planned with the crippling of the Soviet communication infrastructure and the large scale invasion involving over thirteen Panzer (tank) divisions across the border and from the sea. The Luftwaffe simultaneously wreaked havoc on Soviet air fields and stockpiles. The Violation of the Munich Pact The Czechoslovakia Crisis Widely regarded as the start of WWII the invasion of Poland occurred in 1939 when Soviet and German Forces invaded Poland. Hitler did not wish to fight with the Soviets over Poland and thus signed the Nazi- Soviet Non-Aggression Pact, dividing Poland between the two powers and establishing trade between the two. Operation Overlord, or the Battle of Normandy was the invasion of German occupied Europe by Allied forces across the English channel. One of the largest offensives in any war landed it's forces on the beaches of Normandy France. Thousands of troops, tanks, support vehicles and airplanes took part in the historic battle more commonly known as D-day.
