  • No I actually have no idea. How did we enter the war?
  • Well when the Japanese bombed pearl harbor it made us join the war. After they bombed us we started planning the Manhattan Project. Which ended up resulting in the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
  • Do you know how the US got into WWII 
  • While all this was going on Germany had their own plans that would turn into one of the worst things in WW2. The concentration camps that the Nazi soldiers were creating.
  • I saw a movie about that, The Boy in the Stripped Pajamas. It was absolutely heart breaking to watch how they were treated. But didn't the US and Japan have camps similar to those concentration camps.
  • Yes they were called Internment Camps that both the US and Japan had. FDR established them for people of Japanese-American. They were excluded to the West Coast Military Area during WW2.
  • I know what happened in the case Korematsu v. United States. Korematsu refused to go to the excluded area and was arrested and convicted of violating the order.
