This is a bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentations on Isolation Policy of the United States prior to World War II. Both presentations together number 36 slides. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.
Power point #1 is entitled, World War II - The United States & Isolationism and contains 20 slides and covers the following:
When events began happening in Europe that would eventually lead to World War II, many Americans took an increasingly hard line towards getting involved. The events of World War I had fed into America's natural desire to isolationism, and this was reflected by the passage of Neutrality Acts along with the general hands-off approach to the events that unfolded on the world stage.
While America was embracing neutrality and isolationism, events were occurring in Europe and Asia that were causing increasing tension across the regions that would pull the United States into World War II.

Power point #2 is entitled, World War II - The United States Enters The War and contains 16 slides and covers the following:
As Japan continued to invade areas in Asia, U.S. relations with Japan crumbled. On December 7, 1941, Japan attacked a U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor in HI. The next day it attacked the main American base in the Philippines.
Responding to the devastating air raid which killed over 2,400 American sailors and wounded another 1,000, the United States declared war on Japan but not Germany. Hitler acted first and declared war on the United States. The United States committed itself to fighting the Axis powers as an ally of Britain and France.
This had enormous implications for Hitler. Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan, along with Fascist Italy, had entered into a strategic agreement known as the Tripartite Pact, pledging to provide mutual military assistance in the event any one of them was attacked by a nation not already involved in the war. The year-old Pact had been crafted mainly to intimidate America and to discourage it from helping Britain.
