Hey dad, can you tell me some important stuff about about the war? I just learned about it in class today! I want to know more!
Sure! I guess I should with the Office of Scientific Research and Development, they coordinated scientific research for the military during the war.
Well yes, the Manhattan Project was research and development that produced the first nuclear weapons for the US!
Cool! Wasn't there a something else that had to do with research during the war?
I learned about the Battle of the Atlantic today in history class, how it lasted for 6 years, leaving thousands of men killed in hopes of dfeating the Nazi
That is correct! Did you know that following that battle, Germany and its allies fought the Soviet Union for the city of Stalingrad, known to be the Battle of Stalingrad.
Wow! I didn't know about that battle, I also heard that African Americans weren't always able to be in flight squadrons.
That is true, it wasn't until the 99th pursuit squadron that African Americans can fly. This was the result from flight training at the famous Tuskegee school.
I just learned about that today, I also learned about the battle of the bulge and how it was the last major german campaign. Also how the battle of midway was a plan for the Japanese to trap the American carrier fleet.
Did you also know that allied forces had a combined naval, air, and land assault on the Nazi-occupied France? It was known as operation "Overlord."
They sure are smart for doing that. The most interesting part of my lesson today was the internment camps where the US put Japanese Americans after they were forced to leave their homes. They were like prisons! The war really has so much to it, I loved learning about it!
Wow! You sure learned a lot about WW2 in one day! The most intersting part of the war to me was the two atomic bombs planted on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, after the Japanese refused to surrender.After the bombs however, they did surrender!
