During 1939-1945 was one of the worst wars America has ever seen this was World War II. During World War II, many Americans had to change their lives by doing more for the military than themselves for example they had to conserve energy and other important things, consider new jobs/relocate, and Ration their food. In document 1 it’s showing how people would be encouraged to carpool, saying that if you didn’t you’d be riding with Hitler almost. They would say this because by car pulling that saved fuel and they needed more fuel for things like Tanks and Aircrafts in the military. Americans were also encouraged to buy only what was need so no luxury items (Doc 5). Their lives were affected bc they no longer had additional items in the homes that they liked to have, for the better I believe though. One thing that happened during World War II that was rare was women got jobs in America! They were also allowed to join the military but weren't allowed to be a part of the combat. Document 3 shows a picture of a women advertising jobs that many Americans might want. This was a positive affect for the American population. After Pearl Harbor many Americans feared that the Japanese were going to attack again and they had to prepare. One way they prepared is they took Japanese people in America to these camps and one case is shown in document 2 where a girl had to leave her home in California to go live in Louisiana. Americans were forced to relocate and thats a negative affect but it helped us win in a way. Now, during the war Americans had to ration their food so that men in war would…
World War II

World War II was a global conflict that was underway by 1939 and ended in 1945. It involved most of the world’s nations including all of the great power eventually forming two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis.

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…

War world two had a big impact on woman roles. It effected how woman lived their lives because of the new economic opportunities war world two introduced to the world.

World War 2 Journal
22 January, 1912
My name is Wing Chung and I came to Canada at January 20, 1910. I have been in Canada for 8 years now. So, I consider myself more Canadian than Chinese, but they don’t. I found out about the Germans, from the posters. Conscription, didn’t really affect me since I wanted to enlist for the army anyway, but my fellow soldiers were against conscription, they kept on repeating, that they would very much rather be with their families in their comfy beds…
World War 11
When the World War I broke out in 1914, with Austria-Hungary declaring war on Serbia. America’s first reaction was to stay out to conflict. President Wilson, in his speech to the Congress on August 19, 1914 said: "Every man who really loves America will act and speak in the true spirit of neutrality. The United States must be neutral in fact as well as in name during these days that are to try men’s souls. We must be impartial in thought as well as in action."

Physiological Impacts of World War Two
When a soldier enlists into the military forces they know they are going in to fight for their country and freedom for everyone. They spend months training and preparing for the war and what to come. They learn to fight, shoot, and kill enemies, but what they do not learn is how to cope with the after math of the war. Soldiers in war every year come home with many post traumatic effects from what they had witnessed. During world war two this was known as shell…
