And Another World War II Essay, Research Paper

Essay on World War 2 War is one of the most tragic things

in our world today. It is even sadder that usually it comes

around at least once in our lifetime. In the 20th century alone

we have already had two huge wars. These wars were call

the World Wars simply because they involved most of the

big countries of the world. Many people have died in these

wars.. especially the second World War. That is my focus

for this essay. The leader of Germany at the time of WW2

and the person who most think started WW2 was a man

named Adolf Hitler. Adolf Hitler was born in Austria. By the

time that World War 1 started in 1914, he was living in

Germany. He served well in the German Army and for that

he earned a medal for bravery. At the end of the war Hitler

decided to take up politics. By 1921 he was already the

founding leader of the Nazi party. Hitler was an incredibly

racist man and he had a great hate for Jews. By 1933, Hitler

gained political power by winning the election. Soon after he

made himself absolute dictator, calling himself the Fuhrer

which means "Leader". By the end of the 30’s he was

already sending Jews off too concentration camps to meet a

horrible death. I believe that Hitler was one of the greatest

causes of World War 2. Although there are many other

reasons, he was definitely one of them. Another reason was

the Treaty of Versailles. This was the treaty that was signed

at the end of World War 1. This treaty outlined the rules that

Germany must follow because of their defeat by Britain and

France. Many Germans were angered by the treaty, for

most of the rules in the treaty were unfair and Germany lost a

great amount of wealth. One of the cruelest reasons for the

war was Hitler’s racist hate for Jews. He would send them

off in cattle cars to places called concentration camps were

they would be slaughtered by the thousands. World War 2

was huge and involved a lot of countries. There were

thousands of battlefronts and warsites. The two main

battlefronts were the battle front between Britain and

Germany and the battlefront between the Japanese and the

Americans. These battlefronts were split up into smaller

battlefronts even still. Many lives were lost in the air, on land

and in the sea. Some of the most notable battles were: The

Battle of Britain, The Battle of Midway and The Battle of the

Atlantic. Since the US and Canada were at war with the

Japanese, Japanese Canadians were treated very poorly.

The government had decided that all or most Japanese

Canadians, even if they were born in Canada had either go

home or go and live in one of the camps. These camps were

made to keep all the Japanese Canadians together in one

location. But the fact was that these camps were very dirty

and not fair treatment. Also, the government took away all

Japanese possessions and without the Japanese knowing,

they were auctioned off at a fraction of their original value!

This treatment went on for all of World War 2 and Japanese

Canadians were not treaty fairly for many years after. Just

recently the government of Canada has decided to pay

compensation for their losses but most agree that it doesn’t

even come close to what they lost. One of the greatest

outcomes of the war was the great world power shift. For

more than a century Great Britain had been the wealthiest

and most powerful nation in the world. But they used up too

many resources in the wars and their status greatly

decreased. One person even wrote that it is not Great

Britain any more… it is just Britain. People all over the world

suffered through this war. Hundreds of thousands of people

died. All for the sake of their countries. And you know

what? No one actually gained anything from it. The fact is

that all of the countries (excluding the US) lost much, much

more than what they gained. Britain lost their power, France

lost lives and land, Germany lost everything and Japan lost

thousands of civilians in their suicidal attacks called

Kamikazes. In my opinion the war was a total waste.

Although some people will tell you that we fought and gained

the peace that we have today and have had for almost fifty

years. People fought for 5 years and lost more than 50

billion dollars. Do think it was worth it? Now, maybe if

governments use the past as a guide to the future we won’t

have to fight such a bloody battle ever again. Especially with

nuclear weapons so easily obtainable.
