With the U.S. First Army attacking from the north and General George Patton's Third Army from the south, the German began to retreat from the bulge on January 8, 1945 (See appendix 2 &3). American advancement continued and caused the final retreat of the Germans. American casualties resulted in 80,000, while German casualties were more than 100,000 (Battle). “The Battle of the Bulge was the largest battle the U.S. Army ever fought, and the largest it ever came close to losing; a battle so ferocious, and in such horrendous conditions, that very little film, either black and white or color, exists of the conflict” (The). This surprise attack caught Allied troops off guard and caused a bulge in the Allied lines.
World War II was an intense and gory war. It caused greater destruction than any other war in history. The war took the lives of about 17 million soldiers and an even greater number of civilians, who died as a result of bombings, food shortages, and mass murder; an estimated 60 million people in total perished because of the war. World War II began on September 1, 1939 and ended on September 2, 1945. Though for the United States, the war lasted from 1941 to 1945.
War in the Pacific When Japan attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941, they crippled the United States’ Naval forces leaving eight battleships burning in the harbor. Japan thought this maneuver would cripple the U.S.and that America would negotiate a settlement and allow Japan to control all of Asia. Immediately after this event is when America regrouped and waged full-fledged war in the Pacific. Initially U.S troops in the Pacific suffered through many losses in the early months on the Pacific Theater, but they were always able to regroup due to their vast amount of resources. Battle of the Coral Sea & Midway The battle of the Coral Sea was fought in mid-1942.
In this essay the bombing of Japan by the US will be analysed and justified in my personal opinion. The bombs dropped in Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 9th 1945 and August 8th 1945 was completely necessary. The result of the atomic bomb being dropped meant that it ended the devastating Second World War, Japan learnt the error of its ways: they were barbaric and cruel to the allied prisoners they had captured; they did not follow the Geneva Convention. Also it ended many other conflicts with Japan. On August 9, 1945, President Harry Truman decided to drop and atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan.
D-Day On June 6, 1944 the U.S. led an amphibious assault on the German inhabited coast of France. 5,000 ships, carrying anything from medical bandages to tanks sailed across the English Channel to start what would come to be known as the most critical event in World War II. If the assault had failed, all of Europe would have been quickly conquered and the United States no longer would have had any part in the western battle. Instead the United States would have had to move across the World to a new enemy, the Japanese. This would have been bad for the U.S. for the Japanese, through power and determination, were well on their way to taking over all of Eastern Asia.
On 7 December 1941 Japanese naval forces attacked the main base of the U.S. Pacific Fleet - Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, which involve the U.S. in World War II. The attack is surprising, since the same time in Washington is negotiating to establish a lasting peace in the Pacific. As a result, the attack killed 2,403 military and 68 civilians, 12 warships were sunk or seriously damaged, 188 aircraft were destroyed and 155 damaged. The attack was planned by Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto and conducted by Vice Admiral Nagumo Chuichi the home of the Japanese Pacific campaign. The attack was successful, as the Japanese Navy was able to reach almost to Pearl Harbor without being noticed by the Americans.
* On October 24, the French began attacking Germany lines around the city. Making heavy use of artillery, they were able to push the Germans back on the east bank of the river. By December the Germans had been nearly forced back to their original lines. * The Battle of Verdun was one of the longest and bloodiest battles of World War I. Killing more than 250 000 people and leaving over one million wounded.
An American that had been deeply divided over how much aid to give the Allies was not united in a common purpose: make the Japanese pay for their attack and rid the world of Nazism and Fascism. There were many deaths, including 68 civilians (most of them killed by anti-aircraft shells landing in Honolulu) there were 1,178 military and civilian wounded, and the death toll came up to 2,403 people. Pearl Harbor was a critical moment for the United States, because until the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, the United States was staying out of a war that the rest of the world was involved in. When Japan attacked the United States, our country the U.S. declared war on them. When the U.S. declared war on the Japanese, Japan and axis’ allies declared war on our
More than 300,000 American troops had been killed or wounded in the overseas battle ("the claim"). The country had plummeted into debt to cover its own military costs and then, post-war, was forced to forgive other countries their debts to the United States. This unloaded a tremendous burden of debt onto America and thus sent the country into the Great
H.I: During the holocaust the German also targeted other groups because of there perceived ``racial inferiority`` like Slavic people, Russians and other. In 1933 the Jewish population stood over nine million. By 1945 Germans and there collaborators killed nearly two out of every three European Jews as part of the ``Final Solution``. Atomic Bomb: It was during the final stages of WWII. In 1945 united states conducted two atomic bombs against the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan.
