Europe revolts: Major movements in world war 2
Transcript of Europe revolts: Major movements in world war 2
When Adolf Hitler, leader of the German
Adolf Hitler dreamed of ruling a vast empire, where he would be the supreme ruler of the continent. With both of his parents dead, Hitler had no one to stop him. He was arrested for objecting the power of the government, and when he was released, he gathered followers and soldiers willing to fight for his cause. Hitler's forces invaded Poland in 1939, and he started a 6 year gap in world history known as world war 2.
European resistance forces risked their lives to take part in the resistance movements. On December 7th, 1941, a Japanese fleet of bombers attacked Pearl Harbor, a navy base in Hawaii. The United States officially entered the war on that day. In battle, only 4/100 wounded men would survive. Heat and cold weather went to the extremes as soldiers suffered dehydration and starvation. Over 22,060,000 died in battle, and 24,400,000 were wounded. The casualties for each side of battle were drastic. Germany was literally destroyed by the end of 1945. 5000 people on both sides were killed in captivity. And 13 million innocents were killed in combat. In this war, the first atomic bomb was also developed when American forces attacked Japan.
The holocaust also took place during this era. Hitler commanded the genocide of jews throughout Europe. Any person who tried to escape the country would be punished by death. Germany worshiped Hitler like he was a god. Hitler's forces were so widespread, each country had to defend itself and couldn't waste soldiers on protecting other countries. The resistance movements were continuing to strike German bases, but with rare success. British forces bombed and destroyed Nazi camps, and freed many prisoners.
MY PURPOSE OF WRITING
I wanted to
let you know about facts that you might not have found out without some more in-depth research. My purpose was to inform you about WWII.
WHY I CHOSE THIS TOPIC
Originally, I would have chosen something else, but when I was looking for books in the library, I thought about it and found out that I didn't know that much about WW II. Therefore, I picked up the book and began my research to increase my knowledge of the topic! Over the course of the
project, I learned so much new information about World War 2, I had to
take a lot of information out, so I didn't overwhelm the audience. I wanted
to know more about the resistance movements, weapons, and major
points of the war.
-World War 2 was the deadliest conflict in human history.
-The atomic bomb was developed during this time period.
-Nazis killed over 20 million innocent people.
-Both sides of the people faced terrible battle conditions.
- Hitler and his wife committed suicide the day after they married.
-Italy and world-wide communist groups actually helped HITLER!
-And even today, some countries are still rebuilding from the crisis
that occurred from 1939-1945.
