What treatments were available to soldiers at the beginning of World War 2 to treat wound infections?
Answer Sulfonamide drugs (sometimes called the sulfa drugs) were first synthesized in 1932 and were the first effective antimicrobial drugs used during WW II. La…ter commercial production of penicillin (from 1942 first successful use clinically , discovered 1928) made it possible to provide penicillin towards the end of WW II to stave off infections in soldiers . http://www.answers.com/topic/sulfonamide-medicine http://www.answers.com/topic/penicillin http://www.answers.com/topic/gerhard-domagk
Yes check with VFW or American Legion Post
washing machines were very popular when they first became widely available in the late 1940s. The first ones had a tub agitator and an electric ringer on the side, to squeeze …excess water out of the clothes.Perhaps even more exciting was the arrival of refrigerators a decade or so earlier. Until the late 40's Ice Boxes were the only way for most people to keep food chilled.Vacuum cleaners came in about the same time as refrigerators.. Prior to that, homes were swept out with brooms or cleaned with mops and buckets and plenty of elbow grease.
The "war" after World War II was the mainly covert conflict called the Cold War. The first major war included in that conflict (communists vs anti-communists) was the Kore…an War (1950-1953). The Cold War was only a name given to the standoff between the United Soviet Socialist Republic (U.S.S.R/Russia) and the US. The Soviets attempted to foster and support Communist governments worldwide, while the US and its allies tried to prevent this. No battles were fought directly and the only casualties were described as 'accidents'.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars scholarship is available to descendants of veterans. The American Legion scholarship is also available to descendants of veterans.
In the UK there was no need to ration bananas because there weren't any. Imports were for essentials only and bananas aren't essential.
It's called WW2 because it was the second world war to have happened. It, at the end, had involved over 70 countries, which included us. And those 6 countries above, yeah, the…y were not the only ones involved, nor are they, combined, close to half the world. However, they were indeed in WW2 along with the other nearly 70 countries.
In general, no. Some countries might have some sort of healthcare for injured/handicapped/unstable vets.
The war in the Pacific happened because the Japanese wanted oil from the United States but we wouldn't give them any i guess. The war in Europe happened because Adolf Hitler w…anted to control the world. Start of Pacific war: 1941 Start of Europe war: 1936?
At the start of World War II in 1939 it was limited to just a European war, with the British & French calling it a "phoney war". It wasn't until the wars of Asia & Europe join…ed up it was then classed as a world war. In context, World War II was a "World War" because of all of the country's that were involved ranging from Canada too Australia. The reason people jumped in was because Hitler commanded the Wehrmacht (Ver-ma-kht) and the rest of his armies to be his henchmen to 1. Rule the world, 2. Kill all Jews (which is unknown why he tried) and 3. He broke the Treaty of Versailles. After that it just took off.

What does it mean when it says 'Not Available' in the space for a Purple Heart on World War 2 Army discharge papers?
Answer It probably means that the individual was entitled to the Purple Heart but, none was available for issue at that time.
Australia's resources were mainly agricultural, supplying grain and wool to the Allies. There were significant coal resources available, but the large deposits of bauxite and …iron ore were not then discovered or developed. Nor was oil in Bass Strait, in fact the country was short of oil and some was (expensively) processed from oil shales.
August 18, 1945 four days after the surrender. Had the Japanese not surrendered it would have probably been dropped sometime between August 24 to 28. It was returned to Los Al…amos and either became the first atomic bomb in the US stockpile, or was dismantled.
