World War ll
Why were young men forced to go to war at such a young age?
Our topic is on World War ll
How it started?
World War ll started on September 1 1939-1945. It directly involved more then 100 million people from over 30 countries. Approximately 11 million people were killed. This made world war ll the deadliest conflict in human history.
Most historians who have studied the causes of World War 2 agree that its reason for beginning, was at the end of World War 1.

Why were young men forced to go???
World War ll was a very important event in Canadian history. Canada carried a huge role in the war against Germany. It donated forces to the campaigns of Western Europe beyond what might be expected of a small country. Roughly 11 million people helped.

How it started.....Continued
In 1918, the "War Guilt Clause" of the Treaty of Versailles
held Germany, AustriaHungary
responsible for the entire conflict and
forced on them crippling financial approvals,
territorial division and isolation.

Young men were forced to go to war because it was believed that when you are younger and stronger. The older you get the weaker you become.As long as you were between the ages of 17-40 you were considered young and had to go to help serve for your country.
