FC: World War 2 BY: Regan Wright
1: America entered WW11after the Japanese attacked Peal Harbor, declaring war on America on December 6, 1941-1945. Before this occurred, the US remained neutral towards the war in Europe.
2: There are many reasons on why WW11 started. One reason, although some think is not a significant reason at all, is the Treaty of Versailles, which some believed caused some of the conflict between Japan and America. Another reason, is the invasion on Poland by Germany in 1939.
3: Throughout the fight in WW11 there were over 100 countries involved, the Allies and the Axis. The main Allied forces were Great Britain, Canada, Australia, France, The Soviet Union and The United States. The major Axis forces were Germany, Japan, Italy and Hungary.
4: There were many weapons used during the war. The most common thing used were guns, whether it being pistols, rifles or machine guns. But, there were other , more overwhelming weapons such as hand grenades while thrown make a small, but powerful explosion. Flamethrowers which would be launched through a canon and attack the enemy with fire. And anti tank weapons which were something like a gun but more powerful with sharper bullets.
5: ( In the above picture,is the original Rosie the riveter . ) | Rosie the riveter was the iconic strength of women during wartime. It gave women a sense of pride and worthiness. With all the jobs being handed to women at this time, many people thought it would fade. A little after the war some merchants/ factories were still willing to hire "willing to work women."
6: "World War 2 consisted of one thing and one thing only, fighting. Endless fighting and what do fighters need, they need weapons. And that's that." -Unknown source. During WW2 weapons of every kind were in high demand. The factories who produced these weapons needed workers. This helped provide money, and food during the Great Depression for many families.
