World War II Military and Society

Based on your understanding of the reading and the videos, take bulleted notes on the following:

  • What accounts for Germany's rapid conquering of Western Europe?
  • Why were Hitler's military tactics less successful in Russia?
  • How was the U.S. involved in the war before Pearl Harbor, and how did they help turn the tide of war in 1942 and thereafter?
  • Why did the U.S. resort to using the atomic bomb on Japan?
  • In what way did race and ethnicity play into wartime atrocities (e.g. POWs, medical experiments, genocides, etc.)
  • How did women's role in the war vary by country?
