A Taste of the Past A LOOK BACK AT WORLD WAR II AND ITS CULTURAL CHARACTERISTICS BY EMILY VISE THE SOUTH PACIFIC BATTLES JAPAN vs. AMERICA PEARL HARBOR

December 7th, 1941, Japan attacks Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, in a surprise assault. The planes come in two fleets, one at 8:00 a.m., the second about an hour later. Over 1,000 people left dead, almost 200 American planes damaged. THE BATTLE OF THE CORAL SEA After the battle of Pearl Harbor, () the battles in

the South Pacific were mostly fought by the American troops and the Japanese Empire. The Battle of the Coral Sea, (early May, 1942) was a turning point in which the Japanese advance southward was stopped. General Chester Nimitz attempted to stop Japans attempt to cut off Australia, but the USS Lexington was sunk, and the USS Yorktown harmed. But Japan retreats after a hard loss.

THE BATTLE OF MIDWAY Japan was attempting to finish off the naval forces left over, but didnt count on observation Air Force planes to be watching at a distance. June, 1942, American forces assault and attach Japanese forces in their attempt to destroy American naval fleets on Midway Islands. Four Japanese carriers were sunk and Japan lost hope in invading Hawaii. The US now had the upper hand.

THE BATTLE OF GUADALCANAL January, 1942, Japan takes hold of the Solomon Islands, located near Australia. August 7, 1942, major fighting breaks out and the US marines launch their first attacks. They fought in the jungles of Guadalcanal, the largest island, until February of 1943. The US took control of the Solomon Islands

in a victory. BATTLE OF SAIPAN An Island in the Northern Mariana Islands in the South Pacific. Towards the beginning of 1944, American forces were really annihilating Japanese forces. Then in June of the same year, America brought in marines and armed troops who

conducted a two week series of battles* THE DRAFT THE CALL OF THE WILD DO YOUR PART Schools would begin training boys around the age of 16 on until they were called to duty. All men and teenage boys were required to enlist.

POLITICAL LEADERS A TIME TO UNITE Neville Chamberlain September, 1939 , Chamberlain was Britains Prime Minister, after appeasement was unsuccessful and Europe

took its place in the war. He resigned after Englands defeat in Norway in mid 1940. Winston Churchill, one of the most recognizable of the Prime Ministers, took over. Winston Churchill Churchill was Prime Minister for the bulk of

WWII and used a method of high spirits as his approach to the War. Charles de Gaulle He was a military man, but became the leader of the Free French Movement in Britain. The French people say he was their real leader

of this era. Adolf Hitler Germanys main leader during this era, he knew that Germany and the Nazis were close to defeat, and Berlin was soon to fall to Russia. He committed suicide on April 30, 1945, ten days

before his 56th birthday, in avoidance of being put on trial in Russia. Franklin Delano Roosevelt F D R When wall street crashed and the New Deal was struck, FDR was president. He was elected four times, this was before the law was

passed that allowed only two terms per president. His crippling disease and courage to lead during such a trying time have struck America and stayed with us for decades after his time. Joseph Stalin Russia turned to Stalin during this trying time,

who lead until his death in 1953. Hideki Tojo Was Prime Minister of Japan during the attack on Pearl Harbor and the Hiroshima bombing. Tojo was executed on charges of being a war criminal, as he

purposely put Japan into the war. Harry Trumna Lead America after FDRs death in 1945. He gave order for Hiroshima and Nagasaki to be bombed. He was also present at Potsdam, the last big war meeting.

Inventions and Medical Science Penicillin was first mass-produced first during the war, so it would be available to treat disease. It was used in WWII to treat venereal diseases, which were always huge problem for armies. Penicillin was the starting block for other antibiotics we have today that treat simple diseases so they dont become

serious. Meds that treat tropical diseases (malaria) were so crucial, that way soldiers could fight in the Pacific and other warm areas without much trouble. Blood transfusions and meds that aid with flying at high altitudes for long periods of time came with this mass production. Z3 Invented in 1941 by German engineer Konrad

Zuse The Z was used so that the computer wouldnt be confused with the V1 V2 and V3 models, who get their V from Versuchmodell, which were his experiment models. Authors, Singers, and Actors John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath, 1940 W. Somerten Maugham, The Razors Edge,

During the World War II time period, everything and everyone revolved around the war effort. Food and resources were rationed, and times were tough. Luxuries like desert and nice shoes were not patriotic. So fashion and material had to adapt to changing times.

Mens Fashion France and Italy werent leaders anymore, because of the war. Rationing was important, so designers had the challenge of creating affordable, chic, and economically and patriotically practical. No one wanted to wear flashy things, they would be deemed as unpatriotic. Things like the Zoot Suit, Fedoras, Sweaters and ties,

and sportswear were invented and popularized. Interesting fact: President FDR even wore a fedora. Gangsters, businessmen, normal men, they all wore the fedora. Womens Fashion Swing skirts, hats, platform pumps, menswear, sweaters, and glamour were in. The New Look was a more glamorous

fashion, long skirts and gowns, curves, and feminine draping and silhouettes were praised by some, and opposed by others more used to showing skin. French Couture Designer Christian Dior mostly founded this new glamorous look in 1947 Propaganda, war posters,

and funnies ITS NOT LYING. ITS A PERSUASION TECHNIQUE. WAR POSTERS AND SUCH Posters were put up around America asking people to volunteer, join the service, donate, or just be aware of issues. Some propaganda was used to persuade people to agree with Hitler and support Nazis.
