The bloodiest conflict in history, World War II consumed the globe from 1939 to 1945. World War II was fought predominantly in Europe and across the Pacific and eastern Asia, and pitted the Axis powers of Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and Imperial Japan against the Allied nations of Great Britain, France, China, the United States, and the Soviet Union.
While the Axis powers enjoyed early success, they were gradually beaten back, with both Italy and Germany falling to Allied troops and Japan surrendering after the United States dropped the atomic bombs.
The seeds of World War II were actually sown in the Treaty of Versailles which ended World War I. The Treaty of Versailles placed heavy burdens on Germany that they could not fulfill. The tone of the treaty was that of punishment and the punishment was severe.
Crippled economically by the terms of the treaty and the Great Depression, Germany come to embrace Fascism and the Nazi Party, led by charismatic leader Adolf Hitler. Riding the wave of the rise of Fascism was Benito Mussolini, who rose to power in Italy in 1922.
The presentation covers the following:
The Treaty of Versailles
