World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global military conflict fought by the Allied Powers consisting of England, the Soviet Union, China, the United States & others, and the Axis Powers of Germany, Italy, Japan & others, between 1939 and 1945. In all seventy nations fought in ground, naval and aerial combat in the largest war in history.

The Great Depression of the 1930s was also worldwide in scope. It generated unrest and anger, and in several nations it helped bring to power a new generation of dictators plunged a large part of the world into conflict.

World War II resulted in the deaths of over sixty million people and an Allied victory. The Allied nations, refered to as the “United Nations” during WWII, formed the United Nations international organization, hoping UN intervention in conflicts between nations would eliminate or contain open warfare.

at the Height of the Blitz,
Photographic Print

Beginning on September 7, 1940, Nazi Germany bombed London for 57 nights in a row. Known as the Blitz, the sustained bombing of Britian lasted till May 10, 1941 and resulted in the deaths of 43,000 civilians, 1 million injured, and in London alone, more than a million houses destroyed or damaged.

The word “blitz” is German for “lightning”, or “very fast”, and referred to the Blitzkrieg, the German battle strategy in WWII.

Pearl Harbor

The morning of December 7, 1941, dawned clear and cold. Though World War Two as more that two years old, for most Americans it remained a remote war. On that afternoon, many Americans were engaged in a weakly habit - listening to the New York Philharmonic give its Sunday coast to coast radio concert. Suddenly, a breathless voice broke in: "One moment please." There was a brief pause, and then: "The Japanese have attacked Pearl Harbor, the United States naval base ... in the Hawaiian Islands." At that moment, the war became more than background noise for Americans. It became a national cause - a cause that would eventually claim nearly 300,000 American lives and cost roughly $300 billion.

On December 8, the United States entered the costliest and most destructive war in history. But as tragic as World War Two was, U.S. entry into the was did have two positive long-range affects on the nation. First, the massive war effort pulled America out of the depths of the Great Depression, which had left the U.S. economy in a shambles. Secondly, with a single thrust Pearl Harbor deflated the growing isolationist movement in America. Before that infamous December afternoon, nost Americans were content to stay out of the world's troubles. But by the time the war ended four years later, the United States was the world's dominant economic power and one of its two greatest military powers. The establishment of the United Nations in 1945 symbolized the new U.S. role on "the world's policeman" - a role that our nation has played, sometimes reluctantly, ever since.

Men at Japanese Internment Camp, Tule Lake, CA, Photographic Print

Japanese Internment was the relocation of people of Japanese ancestry who lived along the Pacific Coast of the United States and British Columbia, Canada, during World War II.

In 1988, legislation was passed that said government actions were based on "race prejudice, war hysteria, and a failure of political leadership", with an apology and reparations to Japanese Americans who had been interned and their heirs.

Rosie the Riviter -
We Can Do It!

While men were at war, six million women replaced them at industrial jobs.

Howard Miller created the “We Can Do It” posters series for the Westinghouse War Production Co-Ordinating Committee, based the image on a United Press International (UPI) picture of Geraldine Doyle working at a factory. The attachment to Rosie Riveter came later because of the popular WW II song and Norman Rockwell's painting of Rosie.
