How WW2 started
Lots of European countries were still recovering from all the damage WW1 had caused. They were also suffering from inflation. One new dictator was making promises of better life. Adolf Hitler.
The National Socialists or Nazis, were putting random people into concentration camps for no reason. Lots of those people were Jews, in which Hitler blamed everything for.
The Japenese people wanted more resources so they said that they would just take over other nations in Asia.
The Japenese started invading other countries and towards the end of 1939 they had most of China.
Then Italy took over the African nation of Ethiopia.
In the March of 1939 Hitler's troops took over Austria.
The bad memories of WW1 were so awful that the USA hoped to avoid the war.
