This 24-slide comprehensive Power Point Presentation on the ROOTS OF WWII is presented in a time line format which advances as you click so you can control the discussion. There are also clickable links that bring you straight to maps of Europe and then back to your slide. The presentation begins by looking at the rise of Fascism, dictators and Aggression in Europe in the 1920's looking specifically at Italy, Germany, Japan and Russia. It will be clear to the students that the tide of evil that had spread across Europe coupled with the unchecked aggression by the Western countries of the United States and England is what ultimately led to world war. Other slides include "From Neutrality to War", pointing out the Isolationist vs. Interventionist arguments in America, a line graph of an American public opinion poll in 1939, a time line of American attempts at neutrality and Allied and Axis advances in Europe. By the end of this Presentation the stage will be set for the students to understand why America did intervene in this Great War.
