On December 7th,1941 Japan attacked Pearl Harbor at Hawaii, declaring war on the United States of America. Not soon afterwards Germany and Italy declared war on the United Sta…tes
Germany went to war in 1939 for many reasons. 1. Hitler was trying to fulfill his view of "Living Space" for Germans. To take a country and move out it's occupants and replace… them with ethnic Germans. Also German was wrongly blamed for ww1 and so she wanted to avenge this as well. The demilitarization of the Rhineland, Also loosing Danzig to Poland as the brittosh did this. The Japanese went to war for 2 Main reasons. 1. The first is japan didn't have it's own resources. It wanted these so it started attacking china. When America placed an embargo on oil on japan it then attacked pearl harbor.
America and Russia did their own parts on Germany and japan. America invaded and bombed most of western Europe with assisted British royal planes. British will bomb at night a…nd American in daytime. The westerners slowly progressed in western Europe. Russia forcibly sent millions of men and tanks and other equipment head on against the German's. Russia slowly advanced in eastern Europe with a great number of catastrophes on their side. Japan was different. America performed a technique called island hopping where they took over Japan's main islands to get to the mainland. America soon bombed Japan with the atomic bombs which forcibly made them surrender. Russia sent millions of men to recapture the Manchuria province in China didn't attack on Japanese land though they claimed over some of their northern islands. China also assisted to by driving the Japanese out of Mainland China and Hang Kong. Germany and Japan lost, because they couldn't keep up with the production of weapons and use of man power. YOUR WELCOME!
Yes. They still have a military. Japan has only a "self-defense force," under the 1947 Peace Constitution forced upon them by the United States. Under this constitution, they… are not allowed to build a military that could be used for more than defense, without the permission of the United States. This has not been lifted and probably will not be. Japan has tried numerous times to reverse this but has been blocked not just by the United States but by China, especially when it has sought a seat on the U.N. Security Council.
The restrictions were: German army reduced to 100,000 men. No submarines. The Rhineland was to be de-militarised and occupied by the Allies for 15 years. Manufacture, import a…nd export of weapons and poison gas was banned. ARMY: no more than 100,000 men and no conscription (volunteers only). no armoured cars or tanks AIRFORCE: none, no aircraft allowed.
Japan declared war on Germany on 1914 August 23, as a result of the Anglo-Japanese alliance signed in 1902. Britain had declared war on Germany several weeks before on August …4.
Do Japan and Germany have a military today or were they stripped of their right to have a military after World War 2 and do we have our troops there?
Both countries have modern military technology and large well funded militaries. Both have been involved in military actions all over the world. Since the end of the Cold Wa…r, both Japan and Germany have been sending their troops all over the world. Germany has military stationed in many countries, both as German miltary and part of NATO and EUFOR. Japan has troops stationed in a number of countries as well. Japan led a mission to Cambodia in the 1990's as the lead of a UN mission and since the end of the Cold War in particular, both nations have been increasingly militarily and politically active and assertive. Germany as a nation invaded Yugoslavia after Germany recognized Slovenia and Croatia's right to independence, even before the citizens had had a chance to and sent in German miltary troops, that were replaced with European military, then UN, then NATO and then EUFOR troops as section after section of Yugoslavia has been plunged into warfare. What resulted was increasing German and international miltary, political and economic involvement, influence and control in the former Yugoslavia, an increasing pattern being seen with international coordinated miltary actions in other countries whether as part of the UN, NATO, EUFOR, INTERFET, the African Union and other "allied coalitions" such as the "coalition of the willing" invasion of Iraq, of international military actions in other countries that the governments of Japan and Germany have been heavily backing and pushing for. We currently have troops stationed in both countries but not as occupiers but as allies to deter future aggression from other countries. Our commitment in Germany has dropped since the 80's(when I was there). Then we had 7th Army in Europe. I think most of those forces are now in the Middle East and I expect the permanent reassignment of troops from Asia and Europe to the Middle East. Japan and Germany have had matching economic and foreign policies for much of their existence as nations, both formed in 1871 based on the massive influence of their militaries in their governments. The Japanese and German militaries were behind the scene powers behind both the German Kaiser and the Japanese Emperor in their imperial days. This strong military influence and control followed the end of World War One in Germany, when Hitler and the Nazis were backed by and formed by the German military. Hitler was a member of the German military as the German military used the Nazi party, which they created and backed, Hitler as a protegee of the top German general in World War One, Ludendorff and another major German general, Von Hindenberg was in the government from 1925 on and was chancellor of Germany when the Nazis came to power and criminally and illegally passed on the chancellorship to Hitler, putting the Nazis who were a puppet front for the German military in office. The result was soon to see as Germany under the Nazis, planned a full out extermination campaign against the rest of the world. They were partners in this full out extermination campaign against the rest of the world with Japan. In Japan, just as was true in Germany, the Japanese government was completely controlled by the Japanese military and Tojo as the Prime Minister, donned his military uniform as a general in the Japanese military and like Hitler didn't take it off. They were "German and Japanese military personnel" and not German and Japanese civil governmental personnel who were militaristic. The military continued to hold sway and control and influence in the German and Japanese economies Post World War Two. They used their still continued control and influence over Japanese and German national companies and banks to jointly target all the other nations in the world through conjoined trade pushes in timed sectors, wiping out other country's national companies in steel, tools, shipbuilding, autos, pharmaceuticals, optics, machine tools, and most other manufactures and technologies in the world where they hold virtual monopoly control by Japanese and German companies. They also continued to have control of their governments which they used to assure that Japan and Germany would continue to have active miltaries, even though they were supposed to be dismantled after World War Two. Japan and German since World War Two have used other countries as proxies for military actions for them that Japan and German and no one else benefitted from. They immediately created a fabricated "Cold War" with people like Gehlen in the German military feeding the US intelligence that Russia was a threat to the United States while feeding Russians the same threat about the United States. Although the U.S. got nothing out of the Vietnam War nor did Vietnam or it's people, Japan certainly did when Ho Chi Minh invited Japan and just Japan to bring Japanese companies in to invest in and sell to the Vietnamese. A "communist country"? Not really. It certainly didn't benefit Vietnamese companies, however it did a lot for Japan. Germany and Japan have both gained a lot from conflict in Central Asia, Afghanistan and Iraq. Japan is a major investor in Iraq, Germany in Central Asia and Afghan president Karzai just gave Japan first dibs on Afghanistan's substantial mineral rights. They have also increasingly been militarily active, and both have recently gutted their pretense of "peace constitutions" proclaiming that they should be allowed to be offensively involved in military actions in other countries as long as they are "part of a "coalition". At the same time, they have set up other countries for miltary actions in other countries first and foremost their so called "ally" the United States who they are using to eg set up for miltary actions in other countries with Japan and Germany attached as "coalition members". Japan and Germany have both been fairly openly hegemonic towards Europe and Asia, both governments recently sounding like what they did leading up to World War Two, only this time the German government proclaiming that they should join with other nations against the threat of "International Islam" instead of "International Jewry" as they did in World War Two, to set up offensive wars against others, while subversively taking over European countries using the EU to do it. They are also using other international orgs, the UN first and foremost and NATO and the World Bank, IMF and WTO to take over other countries economically, governmentally and miltarily, and yes as a "joint Japanese - German action"
Both. Japan, German and Italy were part of the Tripartite Pact (the Axis) that opposed the Allies. Japan's long running war with China (started in 1937) merged into what we… now call WW2 when Japan attacked America. Germany had annexed several central European countries avoiding war with Britain and France until she attacked Poland in 1939. After attacking the Soviet Union in 1941, Germany declared war on America right after the Japanese attack.
Germany wanted more land for larger population, its military actions led to war. And for Japan wanted natural resources; its military actions led the U.S. to threaten sanction…s before Japan launched a surprise attack on it.
The United States went to war with Japan because of their attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. The U.S. was more or less expecting war with Japan at some point, but not at …the time and place the war began. After President Roosevelt's speech to Congress on Dec. 8, 1941; Congress declared war on Japan. The 470 for and 1 against (the sole vote against came from a profound pacifist Representative. She later voted for war against Germany and Italy [or was not present during those votes]). The United States went to war with Germany after Germany declared war on the United States on Dec. 11, 1941. The Congressional vote for this declaration was unanimous.
The Depression had profound political effect. In countries such as Germany and Japan, reaction to the Depression brought about the rise to power of militarist governments who …adopted the aggressive foreign policies that led to Second World War.

What were the human costs of World War 2 with particular attention to the civilian and military losses in Russia Germany Britain United States China and Japan?
Answer Hello John, It is usually stated that around 56 000 000 people died in the war (i.e. because of the war), of which around 25 000 000 were combattan…ts. This at least according to the "official" list published by the UN. It is of course impossible to get any precision in these figures. Remember, these figures do not include the Holocaust, nor the Soviet purges or any other nationally domestic killing that took place during the war. It counts only people killed by other nations than their own. In terms of nation list, there is a UN such as well. It lists only the dead, not wounded/maimed/missing. Numbers could not be had from all nations, and all nations used very approximate figures. Nations such as Finland; Norway and USA did lose civilians, as did others not listed at all (Denmark e.g.), and the Baltic countries lost combattants, but all either unknown or too few to list (less than 10 000 were not taken up on the list). So in terms of "human cost", it tells perhaps half a truth. But here it is anyway; USA 220 000 (all combattants) Australia 30 000 (all combattants) Belgium 60 000 (10 000 combattants) Britain 430 000 (370 000 combattants) Bulgaria 10 000 (all combattants) Estonia 140 000 (all civilians) Finland 90 000 (all combattants) France 520 000 (250 000 combattants) Greece 100 000 (20 000 combattants) Yugoslavia 1 600 000 (300 000 combattants) China 13 500 000 (3 500 000 combattants) Lithuania 120 000 (all civilians) Netherlands 135 000 (23 000 combattants) Norwegians 10 000 (all combattants) New Zeeland 10 000 (all combattants) Poland 2 620 000 (120 000 combattants) Romania 240 000 (200 000 combattants) USSR 18 600 000 (13 600 000 combattants) Czechoslovakia 90 000 (20 000 combattants) Hungary 200 000 (120 000 combattants) Austria 270 000 (230 000 combattants) Italy 400 000 (330 000 combattants) Japan 2 060 000 (1 700 000 combattants) Germany 6 890 000 (3 250 000 combattants) Hope that enlightens a bit. But as I said, for a total human cost you need to add a whole lot of people to these lists. Germany alone had over 7 000 000 wounded, many of whom were scarred for life. The USA listed 670 000 WIA, the Brits 320 000 wounded (not all in action, as it includes civilians), France 400 000, the USSR 14 000 000 and so on. Sincerely Tommy
The Treaty of Versailles forced Germany to demobilize a certain number of soldiers and support staff. The idea was to make sure the German army never became too powerful a…gain.
