\n. \n News of World War 1 in Germany \n. \nThroughout World War 1 all news on the war reaching the German public in the media was strictly censored (and often manipulated) by the military. \n. \nThe German people were told that they were winning, despite the fact that there were severe food …shortages, military defeats and so on. \n. \nNothing was done to prepare people for the defeat. This, together with the fact that Germany actually succeeded in defeating Russia, provided the breeding ground for the 'stab-in-the-back' theory - that is, the conspiracy theory that claimed that Germany had been stabbed in the back by subsersives on the home front and not really defeated.\n. \nTo those with a grasp of the realities, the amazing thing about WW1 was that Germany managed to hold out for so long against an alliance with far greater resources.\n. \n. \nJoncey (MORE)

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.

Since men were at the war they didn't work so the women had to take over the men had to do like work in big factories making clothing and they cooked food what was sent to the war. I DON'T KNOW MUCH THATS WHY I'M ASKING BUT I KNOW THAT WOMAN WERE MADE TO WORK IN FACTORS WHERE THEY MADE WEAPONS FOR …DURING THE WAR. please add spc for life ay Izac from 8r A better explanation: Women filled many jobs brought into existence by wartime needs. As a result the number of women employed increased from 3,224,600 in July, 1914 to 4,814,600 in January 1918. Nearly 200,000 women were employed in government departments. Half a million became clerical workers in private offices. Women worked as conductors on trams and buses. A quarter of a million worked on the land. The greatest increase of women workers was in engineering. Over 700,000 of these women worked in the highly dangerous munitions industry. Industries that had previously excluded women now welcomed them. There was a particular demand for women to do heavy work such as unloading coal, stoking furnaces and building ships. (MORE)
The "war" after World War II was the mainly covert conflict calledthe Cold War . The first major war included in that conflict(communists vs anti-communists) was the Korean War (1950-1953). The Cold War was only a name given to the standoff between theUnited Soviet Socialist Republic (U.S.S.R/Rus…sia) and the US. TheSoviets attempted to foster and support Communist governmentsworldwide, while the US and its allies tried to prevent this. Nobattles were fought directly and the only casualties were describedas 'accidents'. (MORE)
' The Wizard War ' was used to describe the British Air Ministry's Scientific Intelligence's efforts to discover, and develop means of disrupting, Germany's attempts to set up electronic navigation and bombing 'beams' for their bombers. After successfully achieving this, the organisation went on to …identify and determine the characteristics of Germany's ground and air radar systems, and was able to identify, locate, and map the various radar stations used in Germany's air defence system. Heading the relatively small team that was responsible for this was a young (in his late 20s) scientist, Professor Reginald Jones. His organisation also discovered and determined the operational specifications of the V1 and V2 weapons, providing Britain sufficient time in which to develop the appropriate defenses or action against these weapons. Jones's efforts were supported by other organisations responsible for Enigma decrypts, interrogation of captured Luftwaffe aircrew, photo-recce squadrons, and agents/resistance members operating on the continent.

Total war is when a country utilises all of its resources (economic, human labour, military) for a war effort.

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 joined 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 w…ere 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. (MORE)

World War 1 and 2 were not the same war because of the different underlying reasons for each war. Although World War 1 was a cause of World war 2 it was not the only cause. The other causes were. . Appeasement, Isolationism, and the Failure of the League of Nations . The Treaty of Versailles wa…s seen as particularly unfair by those Germans who accepteed the myth that Gerrmany was never defeated on the battlefield in WWI - a myth propagated by Field Marshals Hindenburg and Ludendorff, even though they were the two who told the government to seek an armistice. Yet the treaty itself is not what started WWII (though it didn't stop it from happening). Rather it was the unwillingness of Great Powers such as Great Britain, and France along with the the League of Nations, to uphold the treaty provisions. When Germany announced that it had an air force, that they were re-introducing military conscription, that they were re-occuping the demilitarized Rhineland, that they had reached a naval agreement with Great Britain that allowed them to build a navy thirty-five percent the size of Great Britain's (roughly the size of France's) the League of Nations only provided paper protests and the Versailles treaty became as dead as a door-nail. WWII was started not only by Hitler's aspirations, but by an enfeebled West which did not comprehend the magnitude of its inactions. . Leading up to the war, some European countries had weakened their own militaries (Denmark had basically disarmed itself, which made it the almost ideal trampoline for German forces into Norway) or had grown wary of enforcing the Treaty of Versailles despite the fact that a known madman had come to the helm in Germany. . At the end of World War I, the victorious nations formed the League of Nations for the purpose of airing international disputes, and of mobilizing its members for a collective effort to keep the peace in the event of aggression by any nation against another or of a breach of the peace treaties. The United States, imbued with isolationism, did not become a member. The Soviet Union was not admitted till 1935 ... The League failed in its first test. In 1931, the Japanese, using as an excuse the explosion of a small bomb under a section of track of the South Manchuria Railroad (over which they had virtual control), initiated military operations designed to conquer all of Manchuria. After receiving the report of its commission of inquiry, the League adopted a resolution in 1933 calling on the Japanese to withdraw. Thereupon, Japan resigned from the League. Meanwhile, Manchuria had been overrun and transformed into a Japanese puppet state under the name of Manchukuo. Beset by friction and dissension among its members, the League took no further action. Also in 1933, Adolf Hitler came to power as dictator of Germany and began to rearm the country in contravention of the provisions of the Treaty of Versailles. He denounced the provisions of that treaty that limited German armament and in 1935 reinstituted compulsory military service. That same year the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini began his long-contemplated invasion of Ethiopia, which he desired as an economic colony. The League voted minor sanctions against Italy, but these had little practical effect. British and French efforts to effect a compromise settlement failed, and Ethiopia was completely occupied by the Italians in 1936. . Alarmed by German rearmament, France sought an alliance with the USSR. Under the pretext that this endangered Germany, Hitler remilitarized the Rhineland in 1936. It was a dangerous venture, for Britain and France could have overwhelmed Germany, but, resolved to keep the peace, they took no action. Emboldened by this success, Hitler intensified his campaign for Lebensraum (living space) for the German people. He annexed Austria in March 1938, and then, charging abuse of German minorities, threatened Czechoslovakia. . In September, as Hitler increased his demands on the Czechs and war seemed imminent, the British and French arranged a conference with Hitler and Mussolini. At the Munich Conference they agreed to German occupation of the Sudetenland, Hitler's asserted last claim, in the hope of maintaining peace. This hope was short lived, for in March 1939, Hitler took over the rest of Czechoslovakia and seized the former German port of Memel from Lithuania. There followed demands on Poland with regard to Danzig (Gdansk) and the Polish Corridor. The Poles remained adamant, and it became clear to Hitler that he could attain his objectives only by force. After surprising the world with the announcement of a nonaggression pact with his sworn foe, the Soviet Union, he sent his armies across the Polish border on Sept. 1, 1939. . The US policy of isolationism. Leading up to World War II, the United States of America maintained a policy of isolation. The United States focused little attention on any conflicts occurring outside of their borders. . Fascism, Nationalism, Totalitarianism, and Collectivist Ideology . Fascists fully support the military and feel war is acceptable in achieving national goals. Because of this, Italy and Germany were prepared to follow this policy and expand and form empires of their own. Germany wanted to unite the dominant German "race". This led to the Czech crisis. . Extreme fear of Bolshevism, deliberately encouraged by hardline nationalists, like Hitler and Mussolini. Hitler saw it as his mission in life to eliminate Bolshevism and what he saw as its "biological root", the Jews. . Expansionism . The war was caused by the expansionist desires of Hitler, Mussolini and the Japanese imperialists. . Germany, Italy and Japan wanted to conquer new territiries and enslave or exterminate the peoples living there. . Economic Depression and Instability . The Great World Depression in 1929 became a very important cause of the war. It sent the German economy into a great disaster, causing a humungous number of unemployed people. In the book "Causes and Consequences of World War Two" it states that, to the Germans, Hitler was now a strong, determined, and efficient leader who knew exactly where he was going. But did the people actually know where he was leading them? No, the people believed that Hitler was leading them out of the depression but, in actuality Hitler motives were different from what the people thought they were. He used the Great Depression to connive his way into an authority. His real motives were to abolish the Treaty of Versailles, expand German territory, and dominate Europe and the whole world. In order to achieve these goals he first wanted to conquer France, and Russia while he was still on the same side as Italy and Britain. He believed that Italy and Britain would stay to his side until he began full the destruction of the Jews. . If there had been no Great Depression, do you think World War 2 would still have happened? The political climate created by this depression allowed dictators such as Hitler to rise to power. . Japan was trying to gain natural resources to feed its industry. Japan has almost no natural resources itself. It attacked the US to "clear the way" for its conquest of American, Dutch, British, and Australian colonies and gain their resources. . Entangling Alliances . Britain and France's treaty with Poland expanded what might otherwise have been a 'local' war into something much bigger. If they had instead decided to not fulfill their obligations under the treaty the war in Europe might very well have ended up with just a war between Germany and Russia. . The point of view that the Versailles Treaty was too onerous, and that this is the cause of World War II, is an American high school history teacher's myth. It is a point of view that can be traced to the isolationists of the 1930s, who declared that World War I had been a mistake, and resisted American preparations for and involvement in World War II right up until Pearl Harbor. Although the Versailles Treaty imposed monetary reparations on the Germany, Allied assistance to the Weimar Republic, both through the Dawes Plan and through investment in Germany during the 1920s, greatly exceeded the repartions taken from Germany under provisions of the Versailles Treaty. Readers would do well to revisit a forgotten treaty, the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk (March 1918), to see what peace conditions imperial Germany imposed on Russia (the Soviet Union) as the price of peace after the Russians were defeated and forced out of the war in 1917. . More Input . You could spend the rest of your life debating the answer to this question, but the short answer is that Adolf Hitler rose to power in Germany by using the Jews and other groups as scapegoats for the problems Germany was facing at the time. He then set out to improve conditions by persecuting these groups and invading other European countries to enforce this twisted ideology all over Europe. . A: . There were four causes ... . Hitler invaded Poland bringing France and Great Britain into the war. . Japan took over Manchuria bringing China into the war. . Japan attacked the US Fleet at Pearl Harbor bringing the US into the war. . Germany invaded the USSR bringing the Soviets into the war. . On September 1, 1939 Hitler sent troops into Poland after repeatedly being told NOT to try and take over neighboring countries by England and France. On this date they had had enough and formally declared war on Germany September 3, 1939.. The immediate Causes of World War II are generally held to be the German invasion of Poland, and the Japanese attacks on China, the United States, and British and Dutch colonies. . Commonly held underlying causes for WWII are the rise of nationalism, the rise of militarism, and the presence of unresolved territorial issues. Fascist movements emerged in Italy and Germany during the global economic instability of the 1920s, and consolidated power during the Great Depression of the 1930s. In Germany, resentment of the Treaty of Versailles specifically article 231 (the "Guilt Clause"), the belief in the Dolchstosslegende, and the onset of the Great Depression fueled the rise to power of the militarist National Socialist German Workers Party (the Nazi party), led by Adolf Hitler. Meanwhile, the Treaty's provisions were laxly enforced from fear of another war. Closely related is the failure of the British and French policy of appeasement, which sought to avoid war but actually encouraged Hitler to become bolder and gave Germany time to re-arm, and the USSR's signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact which freed Germany of fear of reprisal from the Soviet Union when Germany invaded Poland. The League of Nations, despite its efforts to prevent the war, relied on the Great Powers to enforce its resolutions, and was unable to prevent the start of The Second World War. . Japan in the 1930s was ruled by a militarist clique devoted to becoming a world power. Japan invaded China to bolster its meager stock of natural resources. The United States and Great Britain reacted by making loans to China, providing covert military assistance, and instituting increasingly broad embargoes of raw materials against Japan. These embargoes would have eventually forced Japan to give up its newly conquered possession in China because the Japanese would not have enough fuel to run their war machine; Japan was faced with the choice of withdrawing from China or going to war with the United States in order to conquer the oil resources of the Dutch East Indies. It chose the latter, and went ahead with plans for the Greater East Asia War in the Pacific.. Germany invaded Poland , therfore England and France declared war on Germany on Sept, 1939. The USA entered the war on Dec.7,1941 when Japan bombed Pearl Harbour.. Why WW2 Started . The planning of the Second World War started when Adolf Hitler joined a secret society called the Thule Society in 1919. It was in this group that he found the perverted beliefs that were later to lead him in his control of the German government.. In the Thule Society: "... the sun played a prime role... as a sacred symbol of the Aryans, in contrast to... the moon, revered by the Semitic peoples. The Fuhrer saw in the Jewish people, with their black hair and swarthy complexions, the dark side of the human species, whilst the blond and blue-eyed Aryans constituted the light side of humanity. ... Hitler undertook to extirpate from the material world its impure elements.". In addition to sun (or light) worship, the Thule Society also practiced Satan worship: "The inner core within the Thule Society were all Satanists who practiced Black Magic.". The Society was not a working-man's group as it included amongst its members: "judges, police-chiefs, barristers, lawyers, university professors and lecturers, aristocratic families, leading industrialists, surgeons, physicians, scientists, as well as a host of rich and influential bourgeois.... ". The membership of the Thule Society also became the foundation of the Nazi Party: "... the Committee and the forty original members of the New German Workers' Party were all drawn from the most powerful occult society in Germanyï¿½the Thule Society.". One of the founders of both groups, the Nazi Party and the Thule Society, was Dietrich Eckart: "a dedicated Satanist, the supreme adept of the arts and rituals of Black Magic and the central figure in a powerful and wide-spread circle of occultistsï¿½the Thule Group. (He was] one of the seven founder members of the Nazi Party....". Eckart claimed to be the initiator of Hitler into the secrets of Satan worship. He is quoted as saying on his deathbed: "Follow Hitler. He will dance, but it is I who have called the tune! I have initiated him into the 'Secret Doctrine;' opened his centers in vision and given him the means to communicate with the Powers. Do not mourn for me: I shall have influenced history more than any German.". As for the Pacific War, Japan had long been coveting Mainland resources, invading China and (en route) Korea for centuries. Under the guise of The Co-Prosperity Sphere (8-Lands Under One Umbrella), Japan plotted an imperial takeover of Asia and the Pacific a la Western Imperialism less than a century earlier. The US opposed this movement and placed embargoes on Japan. Searching for supplies and rebelling against US intervention, Japan embarked on its Oriental conquest. Hoping to keep the US Air Force out of Japan's way, Adm. Yamamoto led the attack on Pearl Harbor. Unfortunately they opened fire 30 minutes before the proclamation of war was officially delivered, so many viewed it as a violation of military convention (Adm. Yamamoto regretted this fact, he admired Western military practices). As for the Russians, they've long been in territorial disputes with China and Japan (Korea was just a trophy for the three countries), so Russo-Japanese animosity was already well-grounded by the time the Soviets invaded Japanese-acquired Manchuria (after joining the Allies near the end of the war). . Adolf Hitler was a big nationalist, even though he came from Austria, he liked Germany very much, he actually participated in World war I, it might sound funny but he was pretty ... Useless to the military. Until they found something he was good to, he was a so called "Scout-mail-delivery", every time the officers needed someone to deliver mail they used him, he would ride a horse, while being shot by the enemy, because he didn't care for his life at this time, he was so good at this job, that he actually got promoted, the members of his battalion, made such statement that he was weird, and strange making anti-Semitic remarks, and kept speaking to him self, at this time all of this crap seemed some what... strange. in the last months of World war I, Hitler got injured in war, and was sent to a hospital, but Hitler didn't make it into the field again, because the war was over before his injuries got healed, he went into a deep depression, that lasted for weeks. - whats funny about this is, that Hitler wasn't very good at anything, he had tried a lot of professions, he didn't come from a poor family, his father had the highest civilian rank at that time when Germany was so poor, he had tried as a painter, but apparently, his work wasn't very good, so when he got his work reviewed, by the judges, they didn't like his painting at all, and the one that was the judge was apparently Jewish, (This was before WWI), this was where he really began hating Jews, Hitler believed some what, that Germany should be over everything, he thought that someone that was German was more worth then anyone else for example, Jews, Russians, Polish, and many more, he thought that only people that were tall, thin, blond hair and blue eyes were the right humans. - he believed that Germany should be overall, and he wanted to kill anyone that wasn't like he wanted, he himself, was black-haired like the people he hated. - In my opinion he was a stupid a-hole, with not much knowledge, I mean humans are animals like every living-being, and like with primates, they are all different, Hitler failed to realize this. . The person who suggested that Hitler was a member of the Thule society and planned the Second World War soon after the Treaty of Versailles, is, frankly talking rubbish. The Second World war began as a result of Hitler's desire for lebensraum in the East. In invading Poland, Hitler was convinced by people such as Ribbentrop, that Britain would not defend Poland, and Hitler, as an admirer of the monarchist system in the UK, did not want a war with the UK. Operation Sea lion; the planned invasion of the UK, was, according to FM Kesselring, not even a real plan, again suggesting a a lack of aggression towards Britain. Thus, the Second World War started not because of any occultist beliefs on Hitler's behalf, but simple Nationalist and Supremest beliefs and the desire for lebensraum in the East . World war II was started because after WW1 east Russia was not connected to the rest of Germany because the land was given to Poland. Hitler wanted what was called then dazing now call Gdansk. Hitler wanted Dazing but Poland refused. so Hitler attack Poland, but Hitler did not know Britain and France would declare war on him that started ww2 . WW2 began because after WW1 Germany became a very poor very troubled country; The people lost faith in their government and when the 3rd Reich of Germany led by Adolf Hitler came to power and promised to lead Germany out of its misery the Germans believed he could bring Germany back, and they supported his views and beliefs. As most people know, Hitler wanted a perfect or "Aryan" race and he set out to start one. To do this, he allied with Italy forming the Axis powers and began invading neighboring countries in Europe beginning with Poland; Britain and France joined together to combat this threat and formed the "Allied Powers". The concentration camps opened, including the infamous Auschwitz, and the Nazi's began the mass murder of the Jews. The United States eventually got involved after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor (when they were supposed to be signing a treaty with us) and because the other European nations were basically too under equipped too handle the Germans. It's pretty complex, but very interesting and you can learn all about in college, some devote their entire careers to it. . Because Adolf Hitler wanted Europe in his power. . WW2 began because the US, German, Austria, etc. all got together to colonize Africa and rob it of it's natural resources. Germany became "greedy" and decided to go in and take more than what was decided. That is what caused WW2 in a nutshell!! . The events triggered world war 2 was Adolf Hitler thinking that Germans were a superior Race and having the NAZI party having a dictatorship . After world war 1 and the signing of the treaty of Versailles Germany lost a lot of land. After Hitler came into power he did a lot of good things for Germany including pulling the country out of the depression and making a new currency. Most people don't recognize this because the bad out weighs the good. With his idea of a superior race he and the Nazi's invaded Poland and other countries gaining land. Britain and France declared war on Germany because the German's didn't leave Poland. . The path to WWII begin in Versailles at the end of the 1st World War. The Versailles Treaty meant to end a costly war set a very heavy burden on the defeated Central Powers. Reparations for damaged property and the cost of the war was leveled on the defeated Germany leading to massive inflation. As well as a strict limit on military forces to prevent any future capacity for war. . The need to pay of reparations still lay in the hands of Germany and The Allies needed to pay American creditors for money borrowed to fight the war. So the Allies pushed harder on Germany to meet higher and higher payments. In 1929 the Market Crash on Wall Street, New York, caused one of the largest worldwide depressions in history pushing Germany even further into economic and . Out of the ashes of this world gone wrong is an Austrian who fought in the German Army in the Great War and saw the collapse of German power and prestige as the greatest insult. His name was Adolph Hitler and by 1933 he was appointed Reich chancellor by President Paul von Hindenburg in order to bring order. Hitler then led Germany to be the first nation to emerge from the Great Depression by a massive rearmament campaign creating jobs and uniting the divided German people under an umbrella of nationalism and antisemitism centered around the dolstoss legend of Jews and politicians undermining the undefeated German Army into a pathetic surrender in the Great War. Beginning in 1936 Hitler reclaimed the Rhineland, an important industrial area seized by France in lieu of reparations. By 1938 Hitler had bullied the Austrian government into Anschluss or the union of Germany and Austria into one entity. 1939 had Hitler demanding the Sudetenland, an ethnically German area on the edge of Czechoslovakia into the Greater Reich. Britain and France received promises from Hitler stating that Germany would seize no more territory after the Sudetenland. But Neville Chamberlain's promise of "...peace in our time..." rung hollow when by the middle of 1939 Hitler absorbed Bohemia and Moravia and granted independence to Slovakia erasing Czechoslovakia as a nation-state. By August 1939 Hitler had made the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact to divide Poland and in September Hitler demanded the city of Danzig, Poland's only port into the Baltic Sea and with Poland's refusal to surrender the city Hitler enacted a false flag operation using a trumped up Polish attack on a German radio station in order to secure a casus belli to invade Poland. With the attack on Poland, the UK and France declared war on Germany within days of the invasion, beginning World War II.. After looking at these facts there is no way The two wars could be put togethor it is simply too much. (MORE)
Call your state veterans representative; they're in the blue pages of the phone book. This is where you will start your search. Set an appointment and ask any questions you have. It is probably good to have a power of attorney so that you can ask personal questions and get the answers you want, inst…ead of having to bring the veteran to the office. He's probably in his 80's by now. Take any and all papers you have that prove service, especially the DD 214. NOTE: sometimes it takes 2 or more talks with different representatives to find the one that you really communicate with. It happens more often than not. If you don't have a state veterans representative, try calling the Veterans Administration (Houston, Texas at 800 827 1000) for help and advice in this matter. Two items are important to make this easier for you: the power of attorney (which you can fax to Houston) and the DD 214. And, by the way, thank the veteran for his sacrifice and service. God bless you. (MORE)
Most normal jobs to keep the country running, plus, of course, jobs in munitions factories and other war-related jobs. That's obviously not including members of the armed forces, which expanded consideraby and forcibly in wartime.
World War 1 is estimated to have killed about 70 million people, and WWII is estimated to be around 80 million including civilians and PoW's. So WWII was the deadliest. I agree that WWII its much more deadly because in this era, there was Great Depression which cause a lot of economical problems t…hroughout the whole world especially Europe who just came out of WWI and the horrible Spanish Flu. In WWII, we see the rise of many dictators such as Adolf Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini. On the other side of the world, there was Japan who got hit by Great Depression badly and they needed resources and land for its people. For that, they first invaded Manchuria (China), but then they got more aggressive and the started to invade the rest of China and many of the South-east Asian countries. After WWII ended and Japan surrendered because of the two atomic bombs that hit their city, we can say that many of the victims and survivor have a deep trauma and a painful scar even till now. Also WWII showed us the horrible massacre of the Jews, gypsies, and homosexual. Many of them were assassinated in concentration camps. So in my opinion, WWII causes more deaths and it affects more of the victims mentally and psychologically. Not to mention physically too. (MORE)

Several rationed foods during World War II are sugar, coffee, meat, chocolate, butter, spices, cheese and candy bars.
The problem was not of food being AVAILABLE. It was a case of food products being equitably distributed so the British and the US Servicemen and women could have enough food. So things like chocolate, sugar, flour, milk, meat, some vegetables, fruit, fats, etc were rationed and people went to the st…ores with their ration cards to buy their allotted food stuff.

The food types available during WWII depended on which country you lived in at the time. For instance in England they could not have chocolates, deserty foods or other luxuries because of the rationing on sugar and other ingredients needed to make the treats. In the United States chocolate was the n…umber one food item handed out to the servicemen to keep their blood sugar from plummeting. So the Americans had their chocolate supply cut down. Real coffee was impossible to get. They had to have a beverage called ersatz coffee. Milk and cream was hard for adults to get because it was reserved for the babies. Many had to use powdered milk. Meat was severely cut back in England and moderately cut back in the USA. Fish was readily available to the Brits and potatoes too, so their favorite food was not cut back. (MORE)
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 was a world war because it involved all the worlds superpowers and was fought throughout the world eg. Western and Eastern European theater, North African theater, Pacific theater etc.

Britain was at war with Germany because Germany tried to invade Britain. - This isn't the reason. Britain Poland and France signed a pact in August 1939 whereby Britain and France would support Poland should they be attacked by another European power. This was as a result of Czechoslovakia being ann…exed by Hitler in March of 1939. Hitler did indeed attack Poland and Britain declared war on Germany, as they had done at the start of the first world war. The assumption is that Germany attacked first, this was never the case. Britain also started the bombing of Civilian Targets where Germany was concentrating it's efforts on Aerodromes, shipping and Ports. It is often argued this was one of the pivotal issues. The bombing of German cities, caused Hitler to switch to British cities, giving the RAF breathing room to regroup. Hitlers invasion plans were shelved when Germany failed to destroy the RAF and he was always mindful that without control of the Air, Britain was master of the seas, so an amphibious assault was never going to be viable. Hitler made several attempts to seek peace with Britain, including sending Rudolf Hess to meet with Churchill. Hess was interned for the duration of the War, and after the Nuremberg trials remained a prisoner in Spandau Prison, Berlin, until his death in 1987. The Russians refused to release Hess, and he was the last remaining War criminal in captivity in Spandau. (MORE)
World war 1 had Trench Warfare and World war 2 didn't really have that, thus World War 2 was much more mobile. WW1 used chemical weapons, which WW2 didn't, mainly because Hiltler banned their use after he had experienced the terrible effects of gas when he served on The Western Front in WW1. WW2 …involved much more air combat, while WW1 involved planes used primarily for recon purposes. (MORE)

Foods were rationed because they needed the food for the fighting warriors and for the United Kingdom. . Tires were rationed because they needed the rubber for the military vehicles and other things. . Gasoline was severely rationed because the "war machine" used hundreds of thousands of gasoline …daily. . Clothing was limited so the uniforms and shoes and field gear could be made. . Metals were limited because they went to building the vessels and machines for war. . Antibiotics and other medical supplies were rationed to the hospitals and pharmacies so the men overseas could get what they needed. Blood was scarce in the blood banks but people lined up around buildings to donate blood for the US home front and the war front. .

They did not have television, cell phones, but they did have teletype and telegraph and radio. (MORE)

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 wanted to control the world. Start of Pacific war: 1941 Start of Europe war: 1936?
As the name "World War" suggests, it involved most of the world. Major areas of combat included Europe, Africa, Asia, with some combat in North and South America.
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 Alamos and either became the first atomic bomb in the US stockpile, or was dismantled.
