  3. 3. INTRODUCTION<br />It began in 1939 as a European conflict between Germany and an Anglo-French coalition but eventually widened to include most of the nations of the world. It ended in 1945, leaving a new world order dominated by the United States and the USSR.<br />
  4. 4. Axis powers: <br /> Germany, Italy, Japan <br />Ally powers:<br /> U.S., Great Britain, and Soviet Union<br />MAIN PARTICIPANTS<br />

  6. 6. TIME LINE<br />
  7. 7. Cont…<br /> France, the United Kingdom, and the United States had attained their wartime objectives. They had reduced Germany to a military cipher and had reorganized Europe and the world as they saw fit. The French and the British frequently disagreed on policy in the postwar period, however, and were unsure of their ability to defend the peace settlement. The United States, disillusioned by the Europeans’ failure to repay their war debts, retreated into isolationism.<br />
  8. 8. THE MATTER OF FACT…<br />The United States spent the most money on the war, an estimated $341 billion, including $50 billion for lend-lease supplies, of which $31 billion went to Britain, $11 billion to the Soviet Union, $5 billion to China, and $3 billion to 35 other countries. Germany was next, with $272 billion; followed by the Soviet Union, $192 billion; and then Britain, $120 billion; Italy, $94 billion; and Japan, $56 billion<br />
  9. 9. ECONOMIC IMPACT<br />
  10. 10. Cont…..<br />Except for the United States, however, and some of the less militarily active Allies, the money spent does not come close to being the war’s true cost. The Soviet government has calculated that the USSR lost 30 percent of its national wealth, while Nazi exactions and looting were of incalculable amounts in the occupied countries<br />
  11. 11. A REAL PICTURE….<br />
  12. 12. Cont…<br />
  13. 13. HUMAN LOSSES<br />
  14. 14. THE UGLY TRUTH….<br />. Most experts estimate the military and civilian losses of Allied forces at 44 million and those of the Axis at 11 million. The total number of civilian losses includes the 5.6 million to 5.9 million Jews who were killed in the Holocaust<br />Of all the nations that participated in World War II, the human cost of the war fell heaviest on the USSR, for which the official total, military and civilian, is given as more than 20 million killed<br />The United States, which had no significant civilian losses, sustained more than 400,000 deaths<br />
  15. 15. BEGENING OF AN END…<br />On December7, 1941 just before 8am, the Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor was one of the great defining moments in history<br />On August 6, 1945, the city of Hiroshima was the target of the first atomic bomb used against civil population in history. <br />Three days later, the United States dropped a second atomic bomb over the city of Nagasaki. In total, about one fourth of a million people were killed by the two bombs.<br />
  16. 16. Cont….<br />JAPAN SURRENDERS,<br /> V J DAY…<br /> THE WAR IS CALLED OFF…<br /> ALLIES EMERGE VICTORS!!<br />
  17. 17. RECOMMENDATIONS<br /> <br />Recommendation, as a group after preparing this report, through the course of which we went through the various study materials on WW-II, we have realized the following:<br /> <br />Such wars are devastating for the man kind, as they impact each one on an individual ground, apart from the huge macro effects.<br /> <br />All the countries irrespective of there political and economic powers should take a clear stand against the usage of nuclear weapons.<br /> <br />A clear treaty at international level should be formulated stating that ‘going to war’ should be kept as the last option amongst the counties involved in different kind of tussles.<br /> <br />Human life’s are of paramount importance and any situation leading to a mass destruction of human lives should be avoided, “let there be peace”.<br />
  18. 18. LEARNING AND EXPERIENCE<br />Working as a team on such interesting topics is always and huge learning experience with lot of fun involved, to pen down a few major learning and experience after completing this exercise is as follows:<br /> <br />The rigorous reading on the economic impact of the WW II gave us a different outlook to the whole economic fundamental all together.<br /> <br />Analyzing the contents as per the requirements of the project title.<br /> <br />Distribution of work according to each individuals potential in the team.<br /> <br />Penning down a proper road map for completion of the activity.<br />
