The actual physical impact was minimal. Very little damage was done to Japan by the raid. The main impact was psychological- Japan had had a long string of successes and seemed invincible. The surprise bombing of the Japanese homeland showed everyone that they could be harmed, and it was a moral victory for the United States. It also led the Japanese to launch an attack on the US Navy less than two months later at… Read More

You should try and write the Simon Wiesenthal Centre (you may have to do an Internet search for their closest address). Otherwise, the Polish or German Embassies may be able to help you. If you use social media, you might try doing some searches to see if there are any other organizations or people who can help you.

No battles have taken place on Antarctica, as part of any war.
Poland did not exactly join the war, it was the first country to be invaded by Nazi Germany. So war was imposed on it. Britain and France declared war on Germany two days later BECAUSE Germany had made war on Poland.
First off, the M26 was not considered a "super heavy" tank, it was considered just a heavy until it was reclassified as a medium with the introduction of the M103 after the war. By the same token, the Germans and Italians did not actually field any super heavy tanks either- in fact, the Italians didn't really have any true heavy tanks, just medium and smaller. The M26 didn't really see action against Italian tanks- the… Read More

Because it demonstrated that a nuclear bomb obliterated all ability of Japan to continue the war.
WW2 had shown the European empires to be vulnerable and even (near-)defeated. In many countries in Asia, Japanese victories over British and French forces (and their soldiers seen as being treated like slaves by the Japanese). This had destroyed the image of white superiority there. The dire situation of Britain and the 'free' French had led to calls for help from their colonies that their local representatives would only give at a price. That price… Read More
During the Second World War, the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey were the only pieces of British territory ever occupied by Nazi Germany. The islands were occupied from June 30, 1940 to May 9, 1945, after which they were returned to Great Britain following the German surrender.
The great escape was mass escape of Allied POWs from the WW II German prison camp named Stalag Luft III. This event was made into a book and movie named The Great Escape.
The U.S. stopped selling oil to Japan in July of 1941, which was part of the motivation for the Pearl Harbor attack from Japan's perspective. We were their major oil supplier, and the shipments were stopped in protest of Japan's invasion of French IndoChina. This embargo would've ground their economy to a halt in fairly short order, forcing them to find oil elsewhere. But before they could do that, they had to make sure we… Read More
When the Germans invaded France, the French and British troops were being pushed back to the northern French coast. One of the beaches the troops were pushed to were the beaches of Dunkirk. This was a significant event because the Allied troops were waiting for any ship to come by and bring them to the English coastline across the English Channel, or else they feared death from the Germans. Britain ordered all ships to be… Read More

World War II occurred in the twentieth century (1st September, 1939 - 2nd September, 1945).
A "total war" is when military force is used to destroy the country's economy and basic productivity, not just the opposing military forces. In World War II, things like unrestricted submarine warfare in which the submarine was more likely to sink a cargo vessel than another warship, or aerial bombardment of industrial facilities weren't designed to kill the enemy soldiers; they were designed to cripple the entire nation. German submarines aimed to cripple England by… Read More
World War II wrought a horrendous cost on humanity: the infrastructure of much of Europe and Asia was thoroughly destroyed, and tens of millions, mostly civilians, died. The two nations who suffered most, the Soviet Union and China, each lost over 20 million people. German deaths numbered about 5.5 million while Japanese fatalities amounted to 3.1 million. Some countries, such as Poland and what is today Belarus, lost upwards of 20-25% of their entire population… Read More

There were a number of instances right before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. If noticed and followed up with, part of the damage at Pearl Harbor may have been less than it was. Here are some examples of clues that led to Japan's attack:* An intercepted Japanese telephone message gave pause, as it contained questions about the weather conditions in Hawaii and other suspicious items. At this time, the Japanese fleet was 500 miles… Read More
The D-Day invasion of Normandy could not have happened without the US. America supplied millions of troops, many ships, aircraft and weapons.
Mussolini had an alliance with Hitler, who wanted to dominate Europe. Mussolini was also dictator of his country, Italy. Because of this alliance, Italy fought alongside Germany during World War 2 he had agreed with Hitler...one because Hitler knew that he could not concur Italy atm so he made a little agreement...and two he loved to argue with a lot of things and he also knew that this he could not argue with...
General Eisenhower was quoted saying that.
Operation Barbarossa is the codename for Nazi Germany's invasion of Soviet Russia in 1941, as part of World War II. Even though the Nazis and Soviets had promised in 1939 that they would not attack each other, the Nazis had always intended to conquer Russia and create a large empire for themselves- so they broke their promise. The Operation was significant because it was one of the world's largest military operations at the time. While… Read More

The Truman Doctrine promised support to any nation battling communism.
During WW2 grenades were used by both sides to great effect while in close battle.
NO ONE dropped the A-bomb in anger! The US President wanted a decisive show of force to end WW2 and to force Japan to surrender. The objective was to save lives of soldiers fighting the war on both sides, even at the cost of civilian lives. Now that we know the devastation nuclear fission causes to humans, it is very unlikely any sane leader would use nuclear weapons... but not all leaders may be as… Read More

Both Tojo and the Japanese emperor Hirohito influenced their nation to use warfare to obtain economic and political power. Japan lost World War Two in the Pacific Ocean. Tojo was tried by the US as a war criminal and executed. It was well known that the emperor had a hand in Japan's war effort. He was a figure of worship to the Japanese people. He was not tried as a war criminal by the US… Read More

The victory was made possible by the decoding… Read More

Yes, absolutely. Despite having fought for their country with great valor during World War II, black soldiers came home to find the same segregation and the same discrimination. For example, new and beautiful housing developments were being built, such as Levittown in New York, but black families were not allowed to buy a home there. Many universities, even up north, had quotas that kept the number of black students very small; in the south, there… Read More

The D-Day landings were known as Operation Neptune. The battle for Normand was known as Operation Overlord.
The French were expecting the trench warfare of WW1 again, had built the ultimate "trench" the Maginot Line, and when the Germans bypassed it with Panzer tanks the French did not know what to do and became fatalistic. The French ultimately decided to save lives and surrender instead of continuing to fight. The British had the Channel which the Germans could not bypass. This made the German Panzer tanks useless and transformed the war entirely… Read More
War Plan Orange. The Orange plan was one of a number of war plans, collectively referred to as the Rainbow War Plans, developed to deal with a number of war scenarios in different parts of the world. These plans were written by the Joint Army-Navy Planning Board and not by the U.S. Naval War College. However, it is probable that many of the Navy writers incorporated ideas that they had learned while studying at the… Read More
Second improved answer: War historians are not puzzled by the question. Although the Soviets were commonly called one of our "Allies", that is not entirely true. The Soviets (Stalin) were really only co-belligerents fighting against German, Italy, Finland & other European Axis nations, and not Japan. Stalin's priority was defeating Hitler (after he was attacked in June 1941) & occupying Eastern Europe. Japan decided in 1941 not to attack Stalin & help Hitler. This Japanese… Read More
The Battle of New Orleans.
7 January - 9 April 1942
Somewhere between 8 and 9 million men served in the U.S. Army during World War II. The exact number is difficult to determine since figures are usually given for peak strength during a given year and do not take into account those who were killed or who were wounded and released from duty. Plus man soldiers did not serve for the entire war. Deployed means to go overseas. A large number of Army troops remained… Read More

Barbarossa was the German invasion of the Soviet Union. In and of itself it was not necessarily a turning point. It committed Germany and most of its military resources to war with the Soviet Union. After initial successes, the Germans began to suffer major defeats. It was defeats such as the Battle of Stalingrad that were the real turning points on the Eastern Front and led to Germany's ultimate defeat in that theater of the… Read More
