Answer After the United States declared war on Japan, both Germany and Italy declared war on us. So we declared war right back. Michael Montagne
when Americans got involved in WW2In world war 2, Americans got involved right after the Japanese attacked pearl harbor. Pearl Harbor.
Most would say that we were on an immediate path to war the day following Pearl harbor, Dec 7, 1941 The United States was involved in WWII almost immediately providing …funds and exquipment to the Allied forces. But we did not actively join in the fighting til after Dec 7, 1941. The attack on Pearl was the one thing no one had taken into account. We no longer were separate from the war. At that point we then joined in the fighting. when Americans got involved in WW2In world war 2, Americans got involved right after the Japanese attacked pearl harbor. Pearl Harbor. cant say fully of the top of my head but the US joined the war after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, but only declared war on the Japanese. later they declared on the other Axis forces. Germany had been sinking US merchant ships and other ships. When they sunk the British ship The Lusitania killing 1200 people traveling to New York (including Americans) Alfred Vanderbilt was on that ship when it went down. He bravely gave up his life preserver for a woman with a baby. He and his valet did not survive. The Americans were incensed. President Wilson and the Congress chose to declare war on Germany. The Germans regarded their action as being justified saying the ship had war ammunition on board and also claimed there were guns on the decks. They did not care if there were families aboard and not military people.
After the world war, USA immediately got engaged in cold war with Soviet Union. As a result USA played an important role in global politics, specially in Europe, South Eas…t Asia and Pacific. In a frenetic effort to control spread of communism USA engaged in a number of full scale and limited conflicts like Korean war and Vietnam war. USA also funded anti-communist conflicts like Afghanistan war against USSR. A lot of investment economical and political was done in many countries like Pakistan, Turkey, Iran etc.
Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, because there was an embargo and so the U.S. entered the war because they weren't happy that they got bombed...(BTW you should watch the movie Pearl… Harbor, great film) -Japan was with Italy, part of a treaty with Germany and Italy. -The U.S. was allied with Britain
Japanese forces attacked the American base at Pearl Harbour on December 7th 1941. A few days later, Germany declared war on the United States.
December 7, 1941 - when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor.
The United States entry into World War II reversed the balance of power and provided a font of manpower and technological ability that would allow the Allies to be victorious.… This ensured the perseverance of democratic ideals (as opposed to fascist ones) and allowed for the continued survival of minorities.
The United States tried to stay neutral when the war broke out in 1914. Both sides tried very hard to get them to join the war. After much propaganda and rumors of poisoni…ngs, kidnappings and sabotage the United States finally joined in the war.
Germany proposed an alliance between Mexico and herself, thus there became an public outcry (in the US) for the US to enter the war, siding with the Triple Entente.
The Middle East (as a region, not a country) was one of the five major theaters of World War I activity. (Others including the Western Front, the Italian-Austrian Front, the E…astern Front, and the Balkan Front). British forces engaged the Ottomans in what is now Egypt, Israel, Palestine, and Lebanon. The British also created and armed Arab and Jewish Militias to assist them in their attacks against the Ottomans.
The United States was always involved with the war, but it didn't send troops until 1942, after the Pearl Harbor attack forced the U.S. into the war Answer: Pr…ior to the declaration of war by the Americans on German, Americans were involved in running many German businesses and supporting the German war efforts: IBM established a German subsidiary, Dehomag, before World War I and provided data systems for the concentration camps General Motors took over Germany's largest car manufacturer, Adam Opel AG Ford founded a branch plant, later known as the Ford-Werke, in Cologne. Standard Oil of New Jersey - today's Exxon - developed intimate links with the German trust IG Farben. Other firms had branches in Germany:Du Pont, Union Carbide, Westinghouse, General Electric, Gilette, Goodrich, Singer, Eastman Kodak, Coca-Cola, and ITT. The Union Bank was inked with the German steel magnate Thyssen, whose financial support enabled Hitler to come to power.
