Our WW2 project is about the major battles that occurred in europe. WW2 was one of the worlds most deadly and biggest war any country has ever fought. This war consisted of battles fought on four continents and involved or affected 104 countries. The war expanded from 1940-1945 for the United States and 1939-1945 for Britain and other countries. Our project is about the european theater of WW2. Adolf Hitler became leader of the National Socialist party in 1921. He then over took Germany with his ideas. People in Germany were fasinated by his thoughts. They heard what they wanted to hear. He told of superior races and that Germany should be on top of the world. He blamed Germany's problems on the Jews and other groups of people. He told of rebuilding their economy and ruling the world. In 1933 Hitler was elected as Riechs Chancler. He then declared himself Das Fur or the leader. He was now the diactater of Germany. He built up Germany's army into a machine of power and efficiancy. He made many divisions of his army such as the SS or Schutzstaffel. They were known for their mass anialation of the Jewish population. Only true Nazi believers could be accepted into the SS. They were one of two groups that would wear the famous Nazi Swastica arm bands. They were the elite in Hitler's army. There was also the SA (Stermabteilung), the Wehrmacht which included the Luftwaffa (Air Force), German Navy, and the German Army. Also there was the Gestapo, the Nationalsozialisische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (Nazi Party) and many others. Hitler's army was ready for war. In the year 1939 Hitler launched an offensive on Poland starting the war. This laid the stage for many european battles to come.
