6 A Grim Future for the Allies In Jan. 1942, the Axis powers had a big advantage in Europe. By then, Britain was almost defeated, the Axis controlled almost all of continental Europe, and German troops had captured most of North Africa. German subs were trying to keep food and supplies from reaching Britain.

10 Dwight Eisenhower 5 Star General Supreme Commander of Allied forces in Europe Planned Operation Torch, invasion of Italy, and Operation Overlord
11 The North African Campaign Nov. 1942: Br. General Montgomery wins the Battle of El Alamein in Egypt. This starts the retreat of German General Rommel. Nov. 1942: Am. and Br. troops commanded by Dwight Eisenhower landed in Morocco and parts of Tunisia.
12 Battle of the Kasserine Pass First big engagement between America and Germany. America suffers heavy casualties Reinforced by the British they push back Axis powers
13 Casablanca Conference January 1943: FDR and Churchill met in Casablanca, Morocco. They agreed to win the war in Europe before concentrating on the Pacific. They agreed to demand only an unconditional surrender from all of the Axis powers.
15 Casablanca Conference Decision meant to quiet Soviets about Western Allies making deals with Axis supporters. Reflected Roosevelt s determination that every person in Germany should realize that this time Germany is a defeated nation
16 The Invasion of Italy July, 1943: Am. Troops commanded by General George Patton attacked Sicily. 38 days later, Sicily fell and Mussolini was overthrown by a disillusioned Italian population. Hitler captured Mussolini and set up a fascist state in N. Italy, and Italian and German troops continued to fight the Allies in Italy.
17 Gustav Line
18 Gothic Line
19 War in Italy Sept. 1943: Italy surrendered to the allies, and many Italians began to fight against Mussolini and Hitler. Sept Jan. 1944: US forces are stalled by Hitler s troops. Finally in January, the US landed forces behind the German lines at Anzio, just South of Rome.
20 The Battle of Anzio This battle took 4 months and 72,000 German deaths to win. Soon after the battle, Rome fell to the Allies. N. Italy finally surrendered to the Allies in April, 1945, after 190,000 Americans and 483,000 Germans died there.
21 War in the Soviet Union June, 1941: Germany attacked the Soviet Union with 3.6 million German soldiers. The USSR asked the US for lend-lease help, but FDR refused, afraid to be caught helping a communist nation. Eventually, the USSR repelled the German attack, but this was only a temporary victory.
22 The Battle of Stalingrad 1942: Germany again attacked the USSR, this time concentrating its attacks in the Southern part of the country. Sept. 1942: the Germans attacked Stalingrad, a major oil and railroad center.
23 Map of the 1942 German Invasion of the USSR
24 The Battle of Stalingrad From September to November, 1942, the Germans shelled and attacked the city of Stalingrad. The USSR refused to surrender the city and house - to - house fighting saved the city from defeat. By late November, the USSR launched a counteroffensive and began to win the battle.
25 A Turning Point Jan. 31, 1943: 90,000 surviving German soldiers surrendered to the Soviet army in Stalingrad. This was the turning point of the war in the east: after this the USSR never lost another battle, and the Germans did not launch any more offensives in the east.
27 War in W. Europe The US began to bomb Germany in 1942 using carpet bombing tactics. In 1943, the amount of bombs dropped in Germany doubled. By 1944, the US was bombing Germany 24 hours a day. The bombing of Dresden was one of the most famous campaigns of the air war.
28 D-Day June 6, 1944: Allied troops commanded by Eisenhower landed on the beaches of Normandy and began the invasion of W. Europe and the liberation of France. Despite brutal German resistance, 2 million allied soldiers occupied France by July.

34 The Battle of the Bulge The US won the battle. Over 800,000 Americans fought here and 80,000 Americans died. Germany fought with over 2 million soldiers, and lost about 200,000 men. After this battle, the Germans realized the war was lost.
35 German Surrender America invades Germany from the West Russia from the East (first one to reach Berlin)
36 May 8, 1945: V-E Day
37 The Yalta Conference Feb. 1945: The Big Three met at Yalta in the USSR to plan the post-war world.

39 April 12, 1945
40 Back to the Pacific Goal of Japan was to capture as many islands and natural resources as possible before being stopped. Guam Wake Island Gilbert Island Hong Kong Siam Burma Dutch East Indies
41 War in the Pacific On Dec. 7, 1941, about one-half of General MacArthur s air force was destroyed on the ground at Clark Air Field in the Philippines. Within days, a large Japanese force landed in the Philippines and MacArthur withdrew to the Bataan Peninsula on Manila Bay. There he set up defenses, hoping the US Navy could evacuate his men to safety.
42 The Philippines By March, 1942, FDR ordered General MacArthur to escape to Australia. He left with the words: I shall return. On May 6, 1942, 11,000 Americans and Filipinos surrendered. When the Bataan Peninsula fell, approx. 76,000 Filipinos and Americans became prisoners of war.
43 Bataan Death March Japanese soldiers split the prisoners into groups of and marched them 60 miles to a railroad. About 10,000 prisoners died during the 6-12 day march and some were shot by the guards. Those who survived were shipped to prison camps where they were held captive for the rest of the war.
44 Bataan The Japanese general responsible for organizing the march was one of 6 Japanese executed for war crimes after the war.
46 Japanese Expansion Japanese forces continued to expand and were not stopped by allied forces until the Battle of the Coral Sea in May, This battle fought entirely with planes from aircraft carriers. Enemy ships never came within sight of one another.
47 Battle of the Coral Sea Although both the US and the Japanese navy lost about 1/2 of their forces, this battle stopped the Japanese from establishing the bases they needed to invade Australia.
49 The Battle of Midway June 4, 1942: This battle was also fought entirely from the air. The US destroyed 3 of the 4 Japanese aircraft carriers while they were still loading bombs in their planes. This carried with it the loss of 250 Japanese planes. This was the last Japanese offensive.
50 Battle of Guadalcanal 1st US offensive of the Pacific war. August 1942: 11,000 US Marines landed at Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands and about 2,200 Japanese fled into the jungle. They fought there for 3 months. Feb. 1943: Japan abandoned Guadalcanal.
51 Island-Hopping From February 1943 on, the US forces began to selectively attack enemy-held islands in the Pacific. The Japanese fiercely defended their positions and both sides suffered heavy casualties.
52 American Offensives The US first captured the rest of the Solomon islands and then the Gilbert islands. After seizing the island of Tarawa in the Gilbert islands, it was used by US Admiral Nimitz to launch bombing raids on Japanese bases in the Marshall islands.
53 More US Offensives By Feb. 1944, the US had crippled Japanese air power and seized the Marshall islands. By June, 1944, the US captured parts of the Mariana Islands. The Mariana Islands were important because they enabled US planes to bomb Japanese cities.
54 The Philippines Mid-October 1944: US forces invaded the Philippine island of Leyte. Although the US quickly captured the island, a huge naval battle ensued. The Japanese used kamikaze pilots for the 1st time in this battle. The Battle of Leyte Gulf was the largest in Naval history, engaging more than 280 warships. As a result of the battle, the Japanese navy was virtually destroyed.
55 Japanese Kamikazes Japanese kamikazes were suicide pilots who crashed their planes which were heavily loaded with bombs into allied ships. During the war, the US experienced about 4,900 kamikaze attacks which destroyed 57 American ships and damaged about 650 others.
56 A Kamikaze Pilot
57 The Philippines After securing Leyte, the US invaded Luzon in an attempt to capture Manila, the capital city of the Philippines. In one month s time, 100,000 Filipinos died, 80,000 Japanese died, and 27,000 Americans also perished. The US did not fully secure the Philippines until June, 1945.
58 The Battle of Iwo Jima The battle for this 14 square mile island was one of the bloodiest battles of the war. 25,000 Japanese protected the small rocky island and it took over 110,000 Americans to defeat them. Only 216 Japanese surrendered-- the rest died. More US medals of honor were given for this battle than any other single battle of the war.
59 Marines Raising the US Flag at Iwo Jima
60 American Offensives Iwo Jima was located about 700 miles from Japan. Its capture was another step toward an eventual invasion of the Japanese home islands. The next island to fall to the Americans was Okinawa, which was located about 350 miles from Japan.
61 Battle of Okinawa April-June 1945: In another bloody battle, nearly 100,000 Japanese defended the island from an allied force of 180,000 soldiers and 1,300 warships. Japanese kamikazes launched nearly 2,000 attacks against the British and American fleets. This was the single bloodiest battle of the Pacific war with nearly 50,000 allied deaths and 93,000 Japanese deaths.
63 Potsdam Conference Held in Potsdam Germany Stalin, Churchill, Truman meet Send a letter telling Japan to surrender or face total annihilation.
64 Manhattan Project Headed by Robert Oppenheimer Helped by his students at University of Berkley Created the atom bomb
65 The Bombing of Hiroshima August 6, 1945: On President Truman s orders, the Enola Gay dropped an atomic bomb on the city of Hiroshima. It destroyed about 90% of the city and killed about 140,000 people.
67 Nagasaki When the bombing of Hiroshima did not elicit a surrender from the Japanese government, a 2nd atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki on August 9, The bomb on Nagasaki was equally destructive and led to a Japanese surrender.
69 V-J Day August 14, 1945: Japan agreed to an unconditional surrender. The formal surrender was signed on September 2, 1945 on the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay, officially ending WWII.
70 The Results of the War After the defeat of the Axis powers, all territories that had been taken over by Japan were returned to their pre-war status. All of the German-occupied territories were supposed to be given free elections, but only the W. European nations became democratic. Stalin refused to honor the Yalta agreements and made E. Europe into a series of Communist dictatorships.
