World War Ii In Global Perspective 1931 1953

A comprehensive review of World War II that offers a global-level analysis Written for academics and students of history, World War II in Global Perspective, 1931-1953 presents a dynamic and global account of the historical events prior to, during, and after World War II. The author—a noted expert on the topic—explores the main theaters of the war and discusses the connections between them. He also examines the impact of the war on areas of the world that are often neglected in historical accounts, including Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, and the so-called ‘neutral’ countries. This comprehensive text clearly shows how in the struggle against the Axis powers, the United States replaced Britain as the global superpower. The author discusses the Japanese invasion of Manchuria in 1931 and the Korean War (1950-1953) and argues that the core years of the war (1939-1945) cannot be understood without considering the turbulent events that framed them. The text puts World War II in context as a series of large regional conflicts that intersected and overlapped, finally emerging as a genuine “world war” with the formal entry of the United States in late 1941. This vital text: Offers a comprehensive review of World War II that frames it in a global context Gives weight to the economic and political developments of the war Provides a robust account of the main military campaigns Contains illustrations and maps that themselves highlight little-known aspects of the global war

Battle Of Tarawa

On December 7th, 1941, the Japanese Navy Air Service attacked the American naval base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. Nearly 2,500 Americans were killed. The next day, the United States responded by declaring war on Japan, officially entering WWII. On December 11th, war was declared on Germany and Italy, as well. The United States, which had resisted entering the global conflict for two years, couldn't avoid it any longer. Two years later on November 20, 1943, the US embarked on its Central Pacific Campaign targeting Japan. 18,000 U.S. Marines traveled to the Tarawa Atoll in the Gilbert Islands, along with supporting troops, battleships, destroyers, and cruisers. Their mission? Take the tiny island of Betio, which Japanese troops had fortified. Its capture was an essential step in gaining enough strength to invade Japan itself. The battle of Tarawa was the first offensive in the region and the first time that the Americans faced significant opposition to an amphibious landing. While only 4,500 enemy troops guarded the base, the American military leaders knew it would not be an easy fight. They did not anticipate just how devastating it would be. The battle of Tarawa took place over 76 hours, but its impact changed the war.

1 Way 2 C The World

Marilyn Waring is a truly absorbing figure known as a distinguished public intellectual, a leading feminist thinker, environmentalist, social justice activist, and for her early political career after election to New Zealand's parliament at age twenty-three. Assembling some of her most thought-provoking writings, 1 Way 2 C the World is a compelling collection of essays and reflections on many important issues of our time. Written in lively, crisp, and often humourous prose, Waring provides illuminating commentary on topics such as gay marriage, human rights, globalization, the environment, and international relations and development. Including accounts of being in India at the time of Indira Gandhi's assassination, and in Ethiopia's during the 1984 famine, Waring's vivid writing remains contemporarily relevant, while this collection includes recent writings on the post-9/11 world. Brimming with pieces that are essential reading for anyone concerned with the state of the world, 1 Way 2 C the World is bound to fascinate and inspire.
