In the early morning a U.S. air craft was heading toward Japan, its main target was the city of Hiroshima. The plane dropped the atomic bomb and the damage was about 15 kilotons (the equivalent of 15,000 tons of TNT). Some 70,000 people probably died as a result of initial blast, heat, and radiation effects. The bombing of Japan was very important because it was to end WWII and to save our selves from the Japanese we bombed them.
On this day, Soviet troops liberate the Polish capital from German occupation.
Warsaw was a battleground since the opening day of fighting in the European theater. Germany declared war by launching an air raid on September 1, 1939, and followed up with a siege that killed tens of thousands of Polish civilians and wreaked havoc on historic monuments. In August 1944, the Soviets began pushing the Germans west, advancing on Warsaw. They finally capture Warsaw with the help of the Allies. This is important because it shows that the Germany is being defeated and are being pushed back.
Adolf Hitler has escaped death after a bomb exploded at 1242 local time at his headquarters in Rastenberg, East Prussia He was giving a speech at that time.This shows that all Germans have to redouble their war efforts. It is also important because if the assassination was complete then there might have been no more WW II and no holocaust and millions of lives would have been saved.
June 6, 1944, 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. General Dwight D. Eisenhower commanded the attack. This is one of the most important battle because if we didn't win the battle then we might have lost the war.
On this day in 1943, the government of Italy declares war on its former Axis partner Germany and joins the battle on the side of the Allies.This is important because it showed how much the axis powers were hated and despised. U.S also sided with the allies rather than the axis powers when Japan attacked them.
On this day, the last of the German forces fighting at Stalingrad surrender, despite Hitler's earlier declaration that "Surrender is out of the question. The troops will defend themselves to the last!" This is important because it shows hoe the troops did not listen to Hitler which is very rare, and the troops also show something like mutiny where they rebel against their captain orders.
The Japanese government allied their country with Nazi Germany in the Axis Alliance. In the spring of 1941, Japanese carrier pilots began training in the special tactics called for by the Pearl Harbor attack plan. On 7 December, the six Japanese carriers launched a first wave of 181 planes. This is important because the bombing of Pearl Harbor was the act of war that brought the US into WWII and made U.S join the allied forces rather than the axis powers.
On September 1 Germany invades Poland by using a never before seen technique blitzkreig where everything is really fast and like lightning. He uses this technique to capture Poland in one week. This invasion is very important because this resulted in WW II and many countries also got upset by this event.
In the early hours of August 24 1939 Germany and Soviet Russia signed a "non-aggression pact", which divided the states of Northern and Eastern Europe into German and Soviet "spheres of influence", effectively slicing Poland into two halves.
This pact delayed the war between USSR and Germany.
Mein Kampf is a book written by Adolph Hitler when he was in jail. The book mainly was was written because it was influenced by the anger of Hitler towards other countries because he blamed them for taking away their land and blaming Germany for starting the war. The book also influence the Germans to take over other countries and unite them into making WW II.
