Before WW2 the Great Depression hapened the economy was week and the world was to. So Adolf Hitler rose into power in Germany and wanted to rule the world. Also he wanted to bring his people up out of the depression.
Adolf Hitler forced everyone who did not agree with him to be silent and he put many people in to concentration camps because of religion, color or disadvantages. He was the dictator of German. He was apart of the Axis powers.
Benito Mussolini was in power of Italy, and he was apart of the Axis powers.He was born on July 29, 1883 and he died on April 28, 1945 and he violently took over and followed his fathers foot steps.
Francisco Franco took over Spain with the help of Mussolini. He was born on December 4, 1892 and he died on November 20, 1975, and he also led Spain in the Spanish civil war. He was apart of the Axis powers.
Joseph Stalin took control of the Soviet Union. He was born on December 18,1878 and died on March 15, 1953. He was apart of the Allies.
Hideki Tojo was prime minister of Japan. He was apart of the Axis powers. America declared war on Japan becus they boomed Pearl Harbor.
During ww2 America tryed to stay neutral but they couldn't. After Japan got too close to the Philippines and boomed Peal Harbor so the USA declared war on Japan. During this time Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry Truman were president.
So that was a little taste of WW2, and we hope never to have a war like that agin.
