That is a very good question. For several years before the war, most Americans wanted to stay out of any conflicts in Europe. This opinion was referred to as "Isolationists".
When the Japanese attacked the US Navy base at Pearl Harbor, then most Americans wanted revenge. This is similar to how many Americans felt after 9-11 attack on the World Trade Center. Many men joined the Army to go fight.
However, many of these men went to fight in Europe and not Japan. For the most part, most of them felt like they were fighting to bring Freedom and Democracy to the countries that had been occupied by the ruthless leaders of Japan and Germany.
US troops fought in several different battles during World War I. Some of the most important battles fought were the Battle of Belleau Wood, the Battle of Cantigny, and the Meuse-Argonne Offensive.
They were on opposing sides, but they did not fight any organized battles. The US went to the Western Front and the Austrians were on the Eastern and Italian Fronts.
No, it was a European war.
their were no battles within the mainland.
it was the indian war
they had the fight all over the world so that is why it was the world war 2.
yes the US did fight in ww1 it was closer to the end of the war though
there were no battles in the us
Here are 5: Meuse-Argonne, St. Mihiel, Chateau-Thierry, Cantigny, and the second battle of Marne.
In the Pacific. That's where we were also attacked at Pearl Harbor. After that, it was all over for Japan, as their industrial strength was puny compared to ours.
World War 1, World War 2 and I think the Korean War too.
No WWII battles were fought on the continental US soil. But there were the Aleutian Island campaigns that were fought on American territory.
Most of the battles in the US Civil War took place in the Confederacy.
World War 2
The USA fought the British and Canada during the War of 1812, and lost most of the battles. It was a war most Americans like to ignore.
being in the middle of the pacific ocean transporting the war equipement to fight in war battles was easy and reliable
