    Franklin Delano Roosevelt {http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b8/FDR_in_1933.jpg/245px-FDR_in_1933.jpg} 1945) also known by his initials, FDR, was the 32 president of the us (1933–1945) and a central figure in world events during the mid-20th century, leading the US during a time of worldwide crisis and rworld war. The only American president elected to more than two terms, he forged a durable coalition that realigned American politics for decades. FDR defeated incumbent Republican herbert huber in november 1932 at the depths of the great depresion. FDR's combination of optimism with wiston churchill and joseph stalin in leading the Allies against Germany and Japan in world war 2, he died just as victory was in sight.
    Starting in his "first hundred days" in office, which began March 4, 1933, Roosevelt launched major legislation and a profusion of executive orders that gave form to the new deal a complex interlocking set of programs designed to produce relief (especially government jobs for the unemployed), recovery (of the economy), and reform (through regulation of Wall Street, banks and transportation). The economy improved rapidly from 1933 to 1937, but then went into a deep recession. The bipartisan conservatiion cualition that formed in 1937 prevented his packing the supreme court or passing much new legislation; it abolished many of the relief programs when unemployment practically ended during World War II. Most of the regulations on business were ended about 1975–85, except for the regulation of Wall Street by the sicurities and exchange comissions which still exists. Along with several smaller programs, major surviving programs include the Federal Deposit Insurance Corperation which was created in 1933, and Social security which Congress passed in 19 {http://drewjustice.files.wordpress.com/2010/08/fdr.jpg} 35.
    As World War II loomed after 1938, with the japanese invasion of China and the aggressions of Nazi Germany FDR gave strong diplomatic and financial support to China and Britain, while remaining officially neutral. His goal was to make America the "Arsenal of Democracy" which would supply munitions to the Allies. In March 1941, Roosevelt, with Congressional approval, provided Lend-Lease aid to the countries fighting against Nazi Germany with Britain. He secured a near unanimous declaration of war against Japan after they attacked the Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, calling it a "date which will live in infamy". He supervised the mobilization of the US economy to support the Allied war effort. Unemployment dropped to 2%, relief programs largely ended, and the industrial economy grew rapidly to new heights as millions of people moved to new jobs in war centers, and 16 million men and 300,000 women were drafted or volunteered for military service.
    Roosevelt dominated the American political scene, not only during the twelve years of his presidency, but for decades afterward. He orchestrated the realignment of voters that created the Fifth Party System FDR's New Deal Coalition united labor unions, big city machines, white ethnics, African Americans and rural white Southerners. Roosevelt's diplomatic impact also resonated on the world stage long after his death, with the United Nations and Bretton Woods as examples of his administration's wide-ranging impact. Roosevelt is consistently rated by scholars as one of the 3 in the us Presidents. {http://incogman.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/FDR-NEW.jpg}

This rivalry became known as the Cold War. In 1955, the Soviet Union and Communist nations of Eastern Europe formed their own military alliance to oppose NATO. The Soviet-led alliance was called the Warsaw Pact. NATO was established not only to discourage Communist aggression but also to keep the peace among former enemiesheadquarters are in Western Europe.

In forming NATO, eachcollective whereby its member country agreedstates agree to mutual defense in response to treat an attack on anyby an other member as an attack on itself. Militarily,countrie. in the United States was--and still is--the alliance's most powerful member, in part because of its large supply of nuclear weapons. Thefirst few years NATO countries believed that the Soviet Union wouldwas not attack Western Europe if Soviet leaders thought such an attack would trigger war withmuch more the United States. NATO's policy is known as deterrence because it is designed to deter (discourage) an attack. NATO's purpose,just a pilitical association, however, has been less clear since the Warsaw Pact andkorean war galvanized the Soviet Union were dissolved in 1991. Organization. NATO has a civilian branchmember states, and a military branch.

NATO was formed as a result of the North Atlantic Treaty, which was signed by 12 countries on April 4, 1949, in Washington, D.C. The 12 countries were Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, the United Kingdom,auropean states and the United States. Greeceunited states ebbed and Turkey joined NATO in 1952. West Germany joined in 1955. Germany replaced West Germany as a NATO member in 1990, when West Germany and East Germany were united. Spain joined NATO in 1982. Duringflowed, along with doubts over the Cold War, NATO helped maintain peace in Europe through its policycredibility of deterrence. But it also experienced disagreements among its members. The most troublesome involved nuclear weapons. United States officials generally insisted that NATO rely on nuclear weapons to deterthe NATo defence against a Soviet attack. Some people in NATO countries, however, opposed the use of these weapons. Also, European countries occasionally doubted that the United States would actually use nuclear weapons to defend Europe. Theirprospective soviet invasion-- doubts were based on the fact that the Soviet Union also had a powerful nuclear force. For these reasons, Britain and France built their own nuclear weapons. In 1966, France pulled its troops out of the NATO military command, though it remained a NATO member. Before France withdrew its troops, NATO's central office had been in Paris. In 1967, the organization moved its headquartersled to Brussels, Belgium. NATO's biggest crisis followed the breakupdevelopment of the Warsaw Pact and the Soviet Union in 1991. The Soviet Union broke apart into a number of independent states. Most of these states--and the Soviet Union's former allies in Eastern Europe--rejected Communism. Some people felt that without its traditional Communist enemies, NATO had lost its purposefrench nuclear deterrent and should be dissolved. Some NATO leaders proposed offering membership in NATO to such former Warsaw Pact lands as Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, the Czech Republic, and even Russia. Russia, the largestwithdrawal of the former Soviet states, had proclaimed itself the Soviet Union's successor. Other NATO leaders thought that bringing former enemies into NATO would make the alliance meaningless. Still others worried that offering membership to former Soviet allies, but not to Russia, might lead to a dangerous conflict with Russia. In an attempt to resolve the uncertainty aboutfranch from NATO's future,millitary structure from 1966.

In the mid-1990's, NATO took military action against Bosnian Serb forces to help end a civil war inthats the former Yugoslav republicsymbol of Bosnia-Herzegovina. NATO members had feared that the war might spread to other countries. The Bosnian Serbs were fighting the government of Bosnia-Herzegovina. NATO's action increased tension between NATO and Russia, a traditional ally of the Serbs. In late 1995, the Bosnian government and the Bosnian Serbs agreed to a peace treaty, and NATO troops began to replace United Nations troops as the peacekeeping force in Bosnia. {http://archiv.ethlife.ethz.ch/images/nato_WarP-l.jpg} organization

    As Allied troops moved across Europe in a series of offensives against Nazi Germany, they began to encounter tens of thousands of concentration camp prisoners. Many of these prisoners had survived forced marches into the interior of Germany from camps in occupied Poland. These prisoners were suffering from starvation and disease. {http://www.ushmm.org/lcmedia/photo/wlc/image/48/48295.jpg} A view of the death march from Dachau passing through villages in the direction of Wolfratshausen. German civilians secretly photographed several death marches from the Dachau concentration camp as the prisoners moved slowly through the Bavarian towns of Gruenwald, Wolfratshausen, and Herbertshausen. Few civilians gave aid to the prisoners on the death marches. Germany, April 1945.this is a picture where you can see some people marching alot of people died.
    Soviet forces were the first to approach a major Nazi camp, reaching Majdanek near Lublin, Poland, in July 1944. Surprised by the rapid Soviet advance, the Germans attempted to hide the evidence of mass murder by demolishing the camp. Camp staff set fire to the large crematorium used to burn bodies of murdered prisoners, but in the hasty evacuation the gas chambers were left standing. In the summer of 1944, the Soviets also overran the sites of the belzec, sobibor and treblinka killing centers. The Germans had dismantled these camps in 1943, after most of the Jews of Poland had already been killed.

    The Soviets liberated auschwitz, the largest extermination and concentration camp, in January 1945. The Nazis had forced the majority of Auschwitz prisoners to march westward (in what would become known as "death marches"), and Soviet soldiers found only several thousand emaciated prisoners alive when they entered the camp. There was abundant evidence of mass murder in Auschwitz. The retreating Germans had destroyed most of the warehouses in the camp, but in the remaining ones the Soviets found personal belongings of the victims. They discovered, for example, hundreds of thousands of men's suits, more than 800,000 women's outfits, and more than 14,000 pounds of human hair.

    U.S. forces liberated the buchenwald concentration camp near Weimar, Germany, on April 11, 1945, a few days after the Nazis began evacuating the camp. On the day of liberation, an underground prisoner resistance organization seized control of Buchenwald to prevent atrocities by the retreating camp guards. American forces liberated more than 20,000 prisoners at Buchenwald. They also liberated dora-mittelbau, flossenburg , dachau, and mauthausen.
    British forces liberated concentration camps in northern Germany, including neuebganne and bergen-belsen. They entered the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, near Celle, in mid-April 1945. Some 60,000 prisoners, most in critical condition because of a typhus epidemic, were found alive. More than 10,000 of them died from the effects of malnutrition or disease within a few weeks of liberation.

    Liberators confronted unspeakable conditions in the Nazi camps, where piles of corpses lay unburied. Only after the liberation of these camps was the full scope of Nazi horrors exposed to the world. The small percentage of inmates who survived resembled skeletons because of the demands of forced labor and the lack of food, compounded by months and years of maltreatment. Many were so weak that they could hardly move. Disease remained an ever-present danger, and many of the camps had to be burned down to prevent the spread of epidemics. Survivors of the camps faced a long and difficult road to recovery.

A secretary-general heads the council. A European has always been chosen for this post. Decisions of the council must be unanimous. NATO's military branch includes three commands: Allied Command Atlantic, Allied Command Channel, and Allied Command Europe. Allied Command Europe has traditionally functioned as the heart of NATO.

Other NATO leaders thought that bringing former enemies into NATO would make the alliance meaningless. Still others worried that offering membership to former Soviet allies, but not to Russia, might lead to a dangerous conflict with Russia. In an attempt to resolve the uncertainty about NATO's future, the alliance began the Partnership for Peace program in 1994. More than 20 countries joined the program, including Russia. Most of the other countries that joined were Eastern European nations. The program provides for joint military planning and exercises with NATO members but does not involve formal NATO membership. In the mid-1990's, NATO took military action against Bosnian Serb forces to help end a civil war in the former Yugoslav republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina.

    Technology played a crucial role in determining the outcome of world war II . Much of it was developed during the interwar years of the 1920s and 1930s, some was developed in response to lessons learned during the war, and some was beginning to be developed as the war ended. The massive research and development demands of the war had a great impact on the scientific community. A vast array of technology was employed, as different nations and different units found themselves equipped with different levels of technology. Military technology developments spanned across all areas of industry.
    Almost all types of technology were utilized, although major developments were:
    Weaponry; including ships, vehicles, aircraft, artillery, rocketry, small arms, and biological, chemical and atomic weapons.
    Logistical support; including vehicles necessary for transporting soldiers and supplies, such as trains, trucks, and aircrafts.
    Communications and intelligence; including devices used for navigation, communication, remote sensing and espionage.
    Medicine; including surgical innovations, chemical medicines, and techniques
    Industry; including the technologies employed at factories and production/distribution centers

    The progression of WWI introduced new methods of fighting including unrestricted submarie warfare and a variety of new weapons designed especially for government destruction. Trench warfare also became popular with the invetion and use of the machine gun. Along with the newly developed idea of trench warfare " No Man's Land" soon followed. In the mix of all the new styles of warfare was attrition, wearing down of your opponent.
    Of course there were factors leading up to the war such as the introduction of militarism, alliances, imperialism, nationalism, the formation of the triple alliance, the formation of the triple entente, and the Assasination of Archduke Franz Ferdinanad.
    Right before the United States declared war important threatening events such as the Sinking of the Lustania and the reception of the Zimmerman Note were recognized. Before the United States joined the war over seas they started practicing themes of Isolationism and Neutrality and in that way the economy thrived.

    Trench Warfare is a type of warfare where both sides are fighting in their own trenches that they have dugout themselves. They were used to avoid machine gun bullets because they were shot at such high speeds. The land in front of the trenches is called No Man's Land. It was a large mass of land that consisted of barbed wire all around. There was more than just one trench, it was multiple trenches coming together making it quicker and safer for travel during the war. The trenches were 12 feet deep and were in a zigzag pattern. In the British army, the soliders would spend their year; 15% front line, 10% support line, 30% reserve line, 20% rest, and 25% other( hospital, traveling, training, etc.)
