Best Answer

WW2 changed the world. The United States possessed the largest and most powerful military in the history of the world, along with the largest economy. With it's European allies England and France shattered by the war, US power and influence replaced that of Britain and France. The victorious Soviet Union began to push communism, while equally shattered Japan rebuilt itself and became one of America's closest allies. In short, the net effect of WW2 was America's ascension as the world's dominant power and the eclipse of Western Europe.
