Canada's contribution to World War 2 was more logistical than their contribution to World War 1. They supplied food, ammunition and other necessities to the soldiers. In World war 1, they contributed by fighting along the Western Front with the help of the French and British troops. They fought against the Germans along the Western Front.
The US helped the Allied powers and supplied weapons until the entered in 1917. They fought on the western front with France and Great Britain. After Russia left the war, then Germany could move all there troops to the western front. It became much harder to hold.
Answer Canada raised many troops to send to the front lines in Europe. However, Canada itself was never attacked or invaded as far as I know.
on the Western Front
Yes. Normandy is the northern coast of France located in the continent of Europe. On D-Day the beaches were stormed with allied troops who seeked to push forward to reach the western front of Europe.
The Eastern Front of World War Two was in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.
The "first front" in Europe was the eastern front and the fighting was done mostly by Russian and the Germans. The second frint was opened on the coast of Normandy after troops landed on D-Day.
By the front pump.
Because with out it the nazis would have redirected their troops to the western front and crushed the allies.
The western allies on the western front, and the Soviets on the Russian Front.
During a war, a "front" is a place where armies are fighting battles. In World War I, most of the major battles were in Europe. So in World War I, "Western Front" refers to the front in the western portion of Europe- it was mainly in northern France, where Germany had invaded. The "Eastern Front" was in Eastern Europe, primarily around the borders between Russia and Germany/Austria-Hungary.
In France, Belgium, etc. ... the Western Front.
The United States' troops fought on the Western Front in France.
Russia's withdrawal from the war allowed Germans to move thousands of troops from the Eastern Front to the Western Front in France.
On June 26, 1917, the first US troops arrived in France during World War I. Unfortunately, the soldiers arrived untrained, and lacking in both equipment and readiness to begin to fight on the western front.
Germany had more advanced weapons than Russia and they were poorly supplied.
Once the allies successfully invaded Europe, this forced Germany to divert more troops from the Eastern Front to the Western Front. Until this happened with Operation Overlord, the Russians handled the brunt of the German war effort. They pressured the other allies to attack Europe as soon as possible to ease their losses and force German to divide and weaken its forces.
Communication trenches ran between safe areas and the front-line trench. They allowed troops to move safely to and from the front line...
The effects were that Germany's troops had to be spread out, if they fought on a single front Germany would not have to spread out troops, meaning more organization, and it would be generally easier for Germany to win the war.
Are you referring to World War I or World War II? In World War I, Germany was the reason for the opening of the Western Front, by the invasion of Belgium in order to attack France. In World War II, Germany, again, was the reason for the opening of the Western Front. First, they attacked Denmark and Norway (which would be more considered a Northern Front) which was the first contact of German and Allied troops (the British deployed into Norway, but retreated). The Germans then attacked the Benelux countries and France, all falling in a matter of weeks. In both world wars, the initial front was the Eastern Front (on a German standpoint).
VE (Victory in Europe) Day was May 8, 1945.8/9 may 1945 in europeMay 8, 19458th May 1945On May 8, 1945, Germany surrendered on the Eastern Front to the advancing Soviets. On May 7, they had surrendered to Britain and US on the Western front. The last German troops held out in Prague until May 11, 1945.
Because - in order for the us to 'participate' in WWII, they had to transport their troops half-way across the planet to reach the front lines of the battle. The UK is only separated from Europe by 22 miles of water - making it easier and quicker for our troops to be sent to the front-line.
