During the World War ll, people’s lives on the Home Front were greatly changed by evacuation. Evacuation plans had been in preparation well before the outbreak of war. It had begun in September 1939. One of people’s biggest fears was that there would be air raids. The majority had been told that the German bombers ‘will always get through’.
During the early 30s America’s foreign policy began to change. President Franklin D. Roosevelt knew that war was unavoidable so even though America was neutral, he began to make preparation for a war. Franklin D. Roosevelt began to build up the military and to recruit people for the long expected war. During the next few years, changes were made to the Foreign Policy. One of the changes is that America began the Lend Lease Act which rented military weapons to Britain and later the Soviet Union and China.
• Even though they were going to use the bomb the government kept recruiting people into the army. • Many people argued that if the government were going to use this amazing weapon why not just stop investing so much money into the military. E. Conclusion • The United States cannot be fully responsible for the bombing for Hiroshima but they do play a major role of the bombing. • Japan was warned that they would be bombed if they did not comply to American terms but because of this Japan refused to accept the terms and in return an atomic bomb was dropped over Hiroshima • President Truman had many other options that bombing Japan in order for them to surrender but since America is such a nationalistic country they wanted to prove to Russia their enemy before and after WWII that they were the stronger country. • Even though the bomb was dropped and Japan refused to surrender.
His first move was to test the other European powers by inserting troops into Germany’s coal mining area next to France. This was ofcourse forbidden by the Treaty of Versailles and Hitler wanted to see how far he could push his adversaries before they would strike back. If Britain had not been so passive to Hitler they might have stopped this war before it ever started. They, however, allowed Hitler to do this because they did not want to start another war. Hitler then pushed the European powers further and further until he invaded Poland and Europe had no choice but to react.The results of the vote were fixed and showed that 99% of Austrian people wanted Anschluss (union with Germany).
A cargo ship disguised as a cruise ship sunk because the Germans torpedoed it. It carried weapons and the passengers had access to one or more warnings by the Germans concerning sea travel around Great Britain. The British wanted America to join the war to support the Allies. Though this event did not immediately trigger the reaction the British wanted, the Lusitania event, in combination with others, caused the Americans to join the war, allowing the Allies to win. They needed the Americans, and they used an ingenious tactic to cause the Americans to join the war: the death of its own civilians.
America First Committee- in1940 after WWII began isolationists were alarmed by Roosevelt’s pro British policies. To mobilize public opinion against war they formed the America First Committee. Speakers like Charles Lindbergh, traveled the country and spoke out against war. Prelude to War To avoid open conflict with Germany, a policy of appeasement was adopted. And allowed Hitler to get away with small acts of aggression and expansion.
After many deaths Germany finally agreed not to sink unarmed ships without warning anymore. The Germans however broke this agreement by sinking another unarmed ship. So the United States agreed with that Germany that they wouldn’t sink any ships any more as long as they could break the British blockade. But the United States didn’t manage to do this. Because of this, this victory is a dubious
It was in the Dynamo room where British Vice Admiral Bertram Ramsey planned out Operation Dynamo and updated Sir Winston Churchill along the way.  Due to wartime censorship and the want to keep the British morale up, the full degree of the disaster around Dunkirk was not published. The initial plan was the recovery of 45, 000 troops from the British Expeditionary Force within two days.  They expected the German forces would be able to block further evacuation. Britain expected the Luftwaffe would be the main force to block the evacuation.
Even though that speech failed Roosevelt somehow managed to argue for neutrality but at the same time convince Congress to start building up the arms and increase the military and naval budget by nearly two-thirds in 1938. To keep their promise to Poland Britain and France declared war on Germany when Germany invaded Poland on September 1, 1939. In 1940 France fell after a week, leaving the only all that still remained free of German control was Great Britain. Americas started to become alarmed by the speed of the Nazi regimes conquering country after country. With Roosevelt believing that Great Britain was their key for America’s security the U.S. policy started to change.
Yes, Hitler's aggressive foreign policy between 1933 and 1939 inevitably led to WWII. While other factors such as appeasement and the failure of the League of Nations might have encouraged Hitler to test the boundaries and to slowly bring about the start of the war, it was his foreign policy that was the root cause of the problem, as it triggered his motivation to expand German territory and thus angering Britain and France, both eventually declaring war on Germany. Hitler had stated in Mein Kampf, as early as, in 1924, that he wished to expand German territory, and his foreign policy was centered on that. Hitler also resented the Treaty of Versailles and he began to challenge its terms and slowly went about its destruction; this too contributed to the start of the war. The first step of Hitler’s foreign policy was to remove the limitations, which had been placed on Germany by the Treaty of Versailles.
