Transcript of Chapter 34 Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Shadow of War (1933-1941)

The London Conference The London conference is dated to 1933

The purpose of the meeting was to look for solutions to the Great Depression

There were 66 nations in total who attempted to throw out new ideas in order to solve the whole ordeal

What the Great Depression was, was the economic crisis beginning with the stock market crash in 1929 and continuing through the 1930s Objectives ._. 1. Describe Franklin Roosevelt’s early isolationist policies, and explain their political and economic effects.

2. Explain how American isolationism dominated U.S. policy in the mid-1930s.

3. Explain how America gradually began to respond to the threat from totalitarian aggression, while still trying to stay neutral.

4. Describe Roosevelt’s increasingly bold moves toward aiding Britain in the fight against Hitler and the sharp disagreements these efforts caused at home.

5. Indicate how the United States responded to Nazi anti-Semitism in the 1930s, and why it was slow to open its arms to refugees from Hitler’s Germany.

6. Discuss the events and diplomatic issues in the growing Japanese-American confrontation that led up to Pearl Harbor. Appeasing Japan and Germany In 1937, Japan basically invaded China
FDR didn't make this a big deal and decided to overlook the ordeal, which led the chinese to still be able to obtain weapons from the U.S.
That's when the Quarantine Speech was born.
The Quarantine Speech asked for America to stay neutral but to morally side against the fascist nations.
The fascist nations where those who had an authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization.
September 1938 Munich Conference, the Allies greed to let Hitler have the Sudetenland of neighboring Czechoslovakia but unfortunately for all them they had been fooled and Hitler took over completely. Storm-Cellar Isolationism Bad for many, after World War 1 was over the series of unfortunate events wasn't over.
Many dictators began coming into light like Joseph Stalin of the Soviet Union, Benito Mussolini of Italy, and Adolph Hitler of Germany.
The worst one of them all was Hitler because of his way of using propaganda and his great speaking skills.
Around 1936, Hitler and Mussolini joined forces in the Rome-Berlin Axis. This was bad news for everyone around them.
America simply decided to hide under a sheet of " I am unaware of my surroundings" and turn a blind eye to the whole thing and basically isolate themselves. The Fall of France When Poland fell soon after wards Hitler set his eyes on France which led to a small argument which led into a so called war.
In 1940 when this so called war ended it was because Hitler had the upper hand when he over ran Denmark and Norway.
Angrier than ever because France was being stubborn he ended up hitting them harder than anyone expected and they were forced to surrender by June of that same year. Chapter 34 Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Shadow of the War (1933-1941)
By Kimberly Medina Becoming A Good Neighbor :D The US main goal was to be in good terms with everyone they knew.
At the time their goal was aimed at Latin America mostly.
What they did was back off everyone they had trouble with.
In 1933 FDR renounced armed intervention in Latin America and the next year they ended up getting their U.S. marines to leave Haiti.
U.S. also lifted troops from Panama but this cased even more trouble with Mexico but FDR decided to stick to his idea and eventually worked out a peaceful deal. America’s Transformation from Bystander to Belligerent America slowly but surely began to realize they couldn't just develop the bystander effect like the rest of the countries.
Since the Pearl Harbor Attack many Americans were scared to go into a war and most of their energy went into avoiding getting into one
They realized that they had been doing everything wrong and what they had to do was step up to the plate.
The events had ignited a fiery passion in all americans
They had the support of some countries but what they needed to do was take a side when it came to the Japanese.
That;s when they realized that appeasement needed to get out of the picture and that in order to make the world a better place without anarchy and dictatorship was to get into a full war. Thanks For Listening Me Blab Derps :D
