Register to read the introduction… There are many theories that support it could've been prevented and that it couldn’t be prevented. World War II was one of the bloodiest wars, if not the bloodiest, in all of the wars ever. The total military deaths that came from the war were roughly around 19 million people killed (Appleby 519). It featured great Allied leaders: Franklin Delanor Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin. The Axis leaders consisted of Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Hideki Tojo. These six men were some of the greatest leaders of all time, even if they were Axis. The results of the war did end up in our favor though since the Allieds won. To pull things together, World War II was a deadly war and there was virtually no way this war could have been avoided or …show more content…
Hitler came to power in 1933 when he was appointed to Chancellor of Germany (Adolf). And after that, all “hell” broke loose. Hitler introduced a new type of warfare called “blitzkrieg” and he just rushed all over Europe, making everybody mad at what they're doing. But, the war officially started on September 1, 1939 when Germany invaded Poland and a few days later Britain and France declared war on Germany (Appleby 462).

According to a World War II article, In 1919, Michael Keogh saved “a little-known demagogue” who was on the point of being beaten to death by an angry mob, his name (Could)? Adolf Hitler. This was Keogh’s second time seeing Hitler, the first time was when they were assigned to the same Bavarian Infantry Regiment. But their second meeting, as explained above, was the one that could've changed the history of the world. The fight that Keogh saved Hitler from was over politics, how ironic. Just think if Keogh was not there at the time Hitler was about to be killed, the world would be so much

He made it to power because the Treaty of Versailles caused the German’s to pay ridiculous amounts of money. They printed off so much money that their currency had no value and their economy just crashed. The German people just wanted a leader in office who could take their problems away, and that is exactly what he did. Since everybody was willing to listen to him, he could do whatever he wanted, and again he did just that.

When Pearl Harbor was attacked on December 7, 1941 (Appleby 479) it woke up the sleeping giant that Churchill said America was and it forced us to enter the war to get revenge on Japan. If we were never attacked by Japan we wouldn’t of been fighting in the war which would of saved millions of lives and billions of dollars. It also wouldn’t of caused us to drop the A-Bomb on Japan which we were criticized heavily on.

In conclusion, basically there was no chance of World War II being prevented in any way. Maybe, if Hitler died before he came to power then that’s a different story but it didn’t happen. There is many reasons to why the war could’ve been prevented or not, and there is really no right answer, just all opinionated. Just ask yourself, “What would the world be like if we didn’t have the

So, in the writing of the Versailles treaty the writers included a clause for blaming the Germans; for starting the war Germany had to pay 226 billion Reich marks in gold around £11.3 billion. They also had to give the Alsace Lorraine which hindered their ability to pay the money. The debt that Germany has to pay made them poorer than they were after the war.
