Now, can you please tell us about the geographical and political consequences of this war?
Of course Kendal
10% of the population was killed, the Nazi regime was destroyed because of Hitler suicide, Germany was divided in communists in the west and democrats in the east and people was not able to cross the Berlin Wall. Later, Great Britain, the UNited States and the Soviet Union were allied with the democratic side. In 1945, the United Nations were established with 50 members,
When the war ended, the European territory changed a lot because many countries were split. so Europe had now more countries and divisions as we can see right now in the maps and applications. All those divisions were thank to the conflict in the WWII.
Well, and the politics were a difficult thing because of the economy and the divisions of thoughts. For Germany, these were difficult times because before the war, the country had more than a trillion dollar debt, 20% of the houses were destroyed, food production in 1947 was just 51% against the production of 1938, industrial output was just one-third against the output in 1938
It took 45 years for Germany to reunite, and as in this time Germany just finished paying world war 1 debts and they had to pay more than a trillion dollars, the U.S and other Allie helped with this debt.
