The topic that jumped out at me and screamed, ? write about me! ? was that war can? make or break a country? . This statement explains how so many different countries have come into there own, and have established themselves as world powers. Europe? s global expansion created the setting within which all other societies have been compelled to make there way into the modern world. Russians, Latin Americans, Arabs, Chinese, and other peoples found themselves faced with the fact of western European dominance in one form or another. None of them could avoid dealing with it in one form or another. One such an example was the power struggle between Europe and the United States before and after WWII.
World War II was a period of self-definition for the two countries. Europe had become the leading force of exploration between 1492 and 1945 until after World War II when the US replaced them. After the war the Soviet Union had collapsed and without their threat, the U. S. was attempting to stop the spread of communism to better the world as a whole. Before the Second World War Europe was a booming economic epicenter, with trade routes to virtually everywhere.
Their people had witnessed the fall of the Roman republic, the crusades, and the enlightenment of the renaissance, but as time waned on European people found themselves faced with the threat of a war that would bump them out of first place. The United States entered the war in 1941, and Americans moved across North Africa and thereby taking control of the Mediterranean. In 1943, American, British, and Free French forces invaded Italy. Finally in 1945 the Soviet Union was brought down by a devastating defeat that killing millions in both sides. Europe itself was impoverished and in ruins, ironically, a victim of its own political vices and powers. It was clear that European Dominance was finished and that the U.

S. would define the fate of the European world. In my opinion Europe got what it deserved, but I don? t believe that so many deaths and so much destruction was necessary. Europe was a world leader with many political and economic advantages to be shared. I believe Hitler could have been defeated without the involvement of so many countries. He was only one man made of flesh and blood like the millions of people killed in the war.
I do think that some conflict is necessary, but it should never be taken to the extent of mass destruction. In American views the war might have overall seemed positive being that we appeared on top after the dust settled, but I believe that the United States would have established themselves as dominant in the years ahead anyway. In conclusion I have briefly summarized the events of the Unites States that lead up to the fall of Europe. I have discovered through some thoughtful analysis of the war as a whole that, maybe, war is necessary to move along history and events in political power. Although I strongly disagree with war and its effects, I am somewhat persuaded to take a look at it from a military point of view. I conclude with a quote? I know not with what weapons WWII I will be fought, but WWI V will be fought with sticks and stones, ? -anonymous.
