Agenda: Tuesday, May 17, 2011

Quote of the Day:  "We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets. We shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender!" 
Winston S. Churchill, During the Battle of Britain

Learning Targets for WWII:
CH. 24:  The peace settlements at the end of World War I combined with severe economic problems to produce widespread discontent across Europe. Democratic rule in many states gave way to fascism, authoritarianism, and the totalitarianism of Stalin and Hitler. 

CH. 26:  The German and Japanese occupations of neighboring countries led to a brutal war that took millions of lives. Both countries were defeated, but not before the Nazis had killed millions of people in pursuit of Aryan domination of Europe.

• Japanese expansion into Manchuria and northern China brought condemnation from the League of Nations. While still at war with China, Japan launched a surprise attack on U.S. and European colonies in Southeast Asia.
• German forces swept through northern Europe early in the war and set up the Vichy government in France.
• German air attacks on Great Britain resulted in fierce British retaliation.
• In the east, harsh weather and a resolute Soviet Union defeated an invading German army.
• The Japanese conquered the Pacific but miscalculated when they attacked the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor.
• By the end of 1943, the tide had turned against Germany, Italy, and Japan. After the D-Day invasion of Normandy, the Allies liberated Paris and defeated Germany.
