USA and world war II

We want to tell you something about the USA and the second world war.

All began when Hitler bacame dictator and conquered Poland. Here you can see some of Hitler's followers (left-right: Dr. Goebbels, Adolf Hitler, Prime Minister Goering, Heinrich Himmler (he was the worst, because he took cared of killing millions of jews)). But he didn't only conquer the east, also he conquered  the west here you can see dead German soldiers after Hitler had conquered France, north Africa and south-east Asia. But we only want to tell you something about the USA and World War II in France. Special Points will be Ivasion in Normandie, Ardennenoffensive, aerial warfare, and capitulate of Germany.

Hitler conquered France 1940. After the meeting in Theran of THE BIG THREE  they decided to open a front in the west (France). But even 1944 it became reality. At the 5th of June three airborne divisions at 2 o'clock in the morning, (with 17000 soldiers) jumped off their planes at the coast of Normandie between Dünkirchen and Cherbourg to destroy or conquer important logistics places. At the same time the Allied forces troops came at the 6. June 1944 at 6.30 under general Eisenhower from south England with 4000 boats with soldiers, weapons and also there were 12,000 planes which bombed the coast fortifikations. The Germans tried in the night to record Allied forces squadrons with floodlights to open the fire on them.

In a short time the Allied conquered France back.

Millions of German soldiers were taken prisoniers. Here you can see them how they gave up their weapons. Here you can also see resigned faces of German officers.

81 days after landing in Normadie and after hard battles over Paris Allied forces troops moved there. Here you can see them walking down Champs Elysees.

The Ardennenoffensive was the last time Hitler took offensive against his animies. With this last offensive Hitler wanted to rais the morale of the German people and soldiers. It all started at the 16th Decembre 1944 in the area between Belgium and Luxemburg.

Like he conquered France, it was a surprise for the Allied forces, too. The Gemans came with 38 divisions and ran down the only 6 US Divisions, they went surround Bastogne where the 101 airborne division had been, which was most famous for their participation in the Battle of Bulge.Although the US had force over the airspace, they couldn't go out with their planes because the weather wasen't right. After three days first they bombed the German troops. Then it was easy to conquer Bastogne back, and to throw the Germans on their old positions.

With the Aedennenoffensive Hitler wanted to cut the US off the British.

8000 US and 12,000 German soldiers died with the Ardennenoffensive !

So Germany wasen't saved in the west and US, Britains and Russia from east, conquered Germany. Here you can see a map of the military collapse of Germany.

After a few months war was in Japanese over too.

The USA began with the aerial warfire 1943 first. Before the Britains bombed Germany. At first they bombed important strategical places, but then they bombed big cities where lots of people were living, to break the German people moral. There died 40,000 humans in Hamburg, and  even 50,000 in Dresden. Also there were air-raids on Berlin, Lübeck, Rostock and the area of Ruhr was destoyed. In summer 1944 the Germans lost the airspace above Germany to the Allied forces. On the whole there died 600 000 humans who were killed by air-raids.

At the 2nd May 1945 22 German divisions with 900 000 soldiers, in Italy, campitulated.  At the 8th May the German capitulation has been signed in Potsdam (Berlin) by the Germans, Russians and Allied forces. Here you can see Stalin, the new presidents of Britain and the US Atlee and Trueman. They discussed about commen European policy.

Altogether there died 40 million humans and it cost 3 billion dollars in the second world war.
