Allies won. Bataan Death March-Gen Macarther was in charge of Pacific. Forced to march and had no supplies and if you tried to get water they would shoot you Battle of Coral Sea/Midway/Guadalcanal-first time Japan had been stopped on the defensive it was a draw. Both sides lost aircraft carriers but US only lost 3. Midway was huge win for US.
The troops also didn’t know about the vast expanse of tunnel systems under the island, because of these tunnels, combat between the Americans and Japanese would not be straightforward. Iwo Jima was claimed to be the most heavily defended island in WW II. When the Americans landed on the shore of Iwo Jima with their amphibious vehicles, there was complete silence, but as soon as they got fifty
The bombardment was to end and the invasions begin at the same time. The bombers finished on time, but the landing craft ran late, giving the Germans time to recuperate. When the British I and XXX Corps arrived on Gold, Juno, and Sword beaches at 0700, they met heavy resistance. At Gold Beach, the British 50th division also encountered heavy fire, but they made their way off the beach within a few hours. Offshore reefs caused many problems at Juno beach.
Carter 1 Pearl Harbor On December 6, 1941 darkness settled over the U.S. Navy base Pearl Harbor. Thousands of sailors and soldiers were returning from shore leave unaware of the attack that were about to be launched against them. A movie clip from the USS Arizona memorial shows, Pearl Harbor was one of the greatest tragedies ever to Americans which were neutral at the time into World War II. The misjudgment of two U.S. Commanders would cost over 2,000 lives and scores of aircrafts on this tragic day (Film).
Germany established a submarine war zone around the British Isles and said they would sink any enemy war ships that entered that proximity. Innocent American trading and merchant ships were being shot down and sunk by ruthless German warfare at sea. Germany refused to let the neutral America trade goods with their enemy countries. This dramatically impacted America because much of the American economy was controlled by trade with Britain and France, and moving forward America knew it would be impossible to keep an expanding economy without GB and France. America, despite its efforts, could not remain neutral and was forced to enter World War 1.
They prepared to storm the island on April 1st, 1945. The Japanese were really quite underdressed; they had a lot of gap to try and cover to avoid being absolutely slaughtered by the Americans. The Japanese found a way to keep up with America and even inflict very heavy losses of American lives: the dehumanization of Japanese soldiers’ lives. “Once it crossed the rubicon of accepting state-organized suicides as a legitimate military tactic, the Japanese commanders learned that it might we regain some of it’s lost ability to strike the Americans and perhaps stave off unconditional surrender” (Hanson 36). With all regard for life being dismissed, it now became a simple task of killing as many American soldiers as possible.
On August 19th 1942 a 9 hour raid against the Germans was poorly preformed on the Beaches of Dieppe. Many Mistakes were made by the allies but with that came the knowledge of what not to do in the next raid. The allies learned to plan better, size-up the enemy, and realise what battle techniques and weapons should stay and which should go. The allies didn’t plan the raid very well. Operation Jubilee, the raid, was supposed to take place 2 months earlier but was canceled due to unwanted weather conditions with that the soldiers were aloud to return to their barracks.
In order to stop communism the United States did very unconstitutional acts and made many enemies with our cause. When North Korea tried to take over South Korea, the U.S. immediately saw a threat to the Truman doctrine’s man principle and sent troops over to Korea to fight and stop communism. When we began to help, the United States soon realized we were fighting in a style of war we never faced before. Many of the soldiers sacrificed their lives because America was very eager to contain communism any way we could. We gained control after the deaths of over 60,000 of our men were killed in the line of duty.
Admiral Isoruku Yamamoto stated "I fear we will awaken a sleeping giant". Meaning, the U.S. had been waiting for Japan to make a move towards war all along; the Pearl Harbor attack had merely provoked it. The plan to attack Pearl Harbor was made by Admiral Isoruku Yamamoto; commander in chief of Japan's navy. He believed that the best way to act would be by secrecy; because the United States would eventually wear down Japan in a war. Yamamoto believed that Japan's only hope to win is to strike first and knockout the U.S.
They had expected the Saxons to come up a few days later, and so they were not wearing any armor, as they had left them on their ships. Moreover, their army was split in two by the river and had not placed any kind of defensive measures, such as lookouts. The Vikings on the west side either put up a futile defence or ran for their lives across the bridge. Those who decided to fight were slaughtered without mercy. However, the Saxons came across an obstacle on the
