World War two became the most destructing and longest reaching conflict to go down in history. World War two was caused because of the ending of world was one. From my understanding of that Germany was humiliated for the lost of world war one and then the economy in Germany went down which then involved Adolf Hitler to take charge and secretly start an army. Then decided to blame it on the Jews which later ended up in almost to the extension of the Jews, due to concentration camps and the assassination of the Jews. It was extremely cruel and harsh many deaths occurred it had altered the image of war. world war two brought new devilish weapons and instruments of destruction were invented to destroy which included plastic explosives, proximity fuses,rockets,jet airplanes, and of course automatic weapons. The racist propaganda on both sides cause a lot of hatred towards one another. Over fifty million deaths resulted from this horrific war. More than two third of them were innocent civilians. This war was so horrific that it dismembered nations and whole cities were leveled. The world is still trying to cope with that war because of how destructive it was.

Everything was set for war; the little money that was left was used on war and or to purchase more power. One positive thing did come out of this war. Over six million women began to work. They worked for the army’s corps and also volunteered in the emergency service. Women became tool makers and machinists and riveters and crane operators and lumberjacks, blacksmiths and railroad workers. Also the African Americans were also brought in to defend the United States, from the very start black leaders demanded equality and respect from all other race that was involved in the war.
