It’s important to study how aircraft was used during WWII because the effects were so devastating. The dogfights of WWII can be understood by explaining the types of planes used, and the countries that used them, the pilots who flew them, and the tactical maneuvers they used. The USAAF (United States Army Air Force) was the United States main aviation branch of the military during WWII. It was formed in 1941, when American involvement in World War Two was becoming increasingly more and more likely, until 1947 when the U.S. Air Forces became an independent branch of the military. One of the main strategies of the USAAF was to support the Royal Air Force of England in the bombing of Germany.
Both I think backfired somewhat because they caused America to come together and fight the enemy. On a calm Sunday morning on December 7, 1941, the Japanese shocked the world by bombing the American naval base at Pearl Harbor. The bombing happened because the U.S. Pacific Fleet based in Pearl Harbor could foil their plans to attack the American mainland. As insurance, the Japanese navy undertook an operation to cripple the Pacific Fleet by a surprise air attack. It succeeded.
Then between 1934 and 1935 Germany’s strength was growing, so Britain made secret plans to evacuate the women and children in case war broke out. Also in 1936 Hitler got himself involved in the Spanish civil war so he could test his new weapons, for example he bombed an area of Spain called Guernica which made Britain scared because he could turn on Britain at any time. In this essay I will be discussing all the different reasons why children were evacuated. One reason why Britain decided to evacuate most women and children because the children were going to be Britain’s future military, and would need them for when the present military get too old, or die. The Blitz was also happening at the start of the war in Poland, Holland, Belgium and France.
Luckily some of the ships were out doing routine training at the time of the attack. The day after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, December 8, 1941, the United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt announced the U.S. had joined the War. When America joined the war it created thousands of jobs. Companies stopped making their regular products and started manufacturing parts and materials needed for the war. Many Louisville factories produced and supplied the Armed Forces during World War 2.
Advanced Higher History Dissertation How important was the RAF victory in the Battle of Britain in preventing a German invasion in 1940? “Since England, despite of her hopeless military situation, shows no signs of being ready to come to an understanding, I have decided to prepare a landing operation against England, and, if necessary, to carry it out. The aim of this operation will be to eliminate the English homeland as a base for the prosecution of the war against Germany and, if necessary, to occupy it completely.” The Führer and Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces Directive 16 16 Jul 1940 Contents Introduction 3 The Battle of Britain 4 The RAF Victory 8 The Invasion of Britain? 13 Other Factors 14 Conclusion 17 Bibliography 18 Introduction Britain’s victory in ‘The Battle of Britain’ is arguably the most decisive incident of the Second World War. Our victory could be claimed to have prevented an invasion of Britain in the summer or autumn of 1940 and the subsequent defeat of the Western allies, also it was the first time Hitler’s mighty Luftwaffe had been defeated.
The Battle of Britain History Paper The Battle of Britain was a battle between the German air force, the Luftwaffe, and the British air force, the Royal Air Force (RAF). This battle took place over the skies of the United Kingdom in the summer and autumn of 1940. In order for Hitler to execute “Operation Sealion”, a planned invasion, successfully, he had to get rid of the British air force fearing that they will stop the operation if he tried to execute it. The first attack occurred in the August of 1940. Hitler decided to bomb the British airfields and then eventually cities.
Though the odds and numbers were against the British, it was the unorganized planning and overconfidence that led to the British army to ultimately win the battle against Germany. The invasion of France ended in June 1940; it was not until over a month later that Hitler made the decision to invade Britain, because he was unsuccessful in trying to get the British to surrender. The Battle of Britain was not an immediate, necessary battle to Hitler, but because he wanted and would benefit from air superiority, he put forth the effort to fight it anyway. The small number of British forces fueled overconfidence for Germany and
WW1 left Britain in a bad position. But it gave them an idea of the potential of Germany. The first air raid from Germany was by a zeppelin on the 19th of January 1915 over great Yarmouth and King’s Lynn. Only two people were killed. In May of the same year zeppelin raids hit London.
England hadn’t been attacked on their own territory for over 1000 years and unexpectedly the German airships bombed the south of England However 8,538315 million approximately were killed deaths are expected in war but not on this scale. The propaganda posters weren’t shocking at all, they manipulate you into thinking war is something worthy when in reality it was brutal. Also the hate posters they weren’t shocking yes they were supportive but it’s not something to be surprised about its obvious and expectable for people to start protesting and disserting opponents during a huge war. So in conclusion WW1 was more shocking than not. What were Germany’s main territorial losses under the treaty of Versailles?
