This was the reason why they were sent to capture Vimy Ridge from the Germans and were successful, a place where both France and Britain had been defeated by German defences during the beginning of World War One. Leading the Canadian army into the Vimy Ridge was a Canadian war strategist Commander Arthur Currie. He was the first Canadian to lead the Canadian army into battle. Also, Vimy Ridge brought pride to Canada and a sense of becoming a nation.

There were many reasons how the Nazi Soviet Pact played a greater part in causing war in 1939 than the policy of appeasement such as an important factor, which let Hitler invade Poland without having to fight a war on two fronts. Also, after the failure of appeasement, the British had guaranteed polish security. Once Germany invaded, the British would be forced to declare war. The Nazi Soviet Pact can be considered major causes of World War Two, however the policy of appeasement was the most important reason for the war.

Montgomery was charged with leading ground forces during the Operation Overlord landings and the breakout from the beaches into the Norman countryside. The First Canadian Army was introduced in late July 1944 under the command of General Harry Crerar. The troops of the First Canadian Army would prove to be very valiant in battle, while smaller battles would rage within High Command. Montgomery would demonstrate his prowess as a commander through both the tactics of battle, and his handling of the rivalries and differences in opinion that would plague Canadian High Command. Furthermore, Crerar’s hard patriotic stance on the Canadian Army would eventually alienate him from Montgomery and the British commanders under his control.

Cuba had to use a Swedish ruse to safely and successfully ship sugar, an ingredient in bomb-making, to Britain and France.

What was the impact of propaganda on the people of Britain in World War II? Introduction: Propaganda had many effects on wartime Britain, and was implemented to ensure the war effort was paramount in everyone’s lives, as well as to ensure the safety of every allied individual involved in the war. This involved tactics such as the boosting of morale, propaganda to ensure evacuation went ahead smoothly, blackouts, conscription and censorship. Morale was a key feature in the success of the war and the war effort, and the government used propaganda to keep this ideal alive, to ensure the greatest output from the people was being produced to help the war effort.” “What the government feared most was defeatism” (9) stated Angus Calder. Morale instilled calmness in people, reducing the feeling of panic within the city as this would have had an adverse effect on the war effort, such as blackouts, which would also risk lives.
BATTLE OF OKINAWA SSG Dustin G. McClure Strength Maintenance Training Center SLC Class # 13-004 SFC Matthew Roberts May 6th, 2013 Abstract This research paper was written to uncover lessons form the Battle of Okinawa which was code named operation Iceberg. This battle was the largest and final battle of the Pacific War which resulted in a hard fought victory for the United States. Allied forces needed the island of Okinawa because its air fields were within range of main land Japan which was believed to be an instrumental key in defeating the Japanese in World War II.

Radio, newspapers, magazines, books, theatre, films, music and art were all supervised.
