Title: Tahoma 20 Pt

Mao on Long March, 1933 Mao Zedong (1893-1976)
joined the Communist Party in the early 1920s and
soon became one of its leaders. In 1934-1935,
pursued by the Guomindang army, Mao Zedong led
his rag-tag army of Communist guerrillas on a
Long March (6,000 miles in one year) across the
rugged mountains of southern and western China.
Of the 100,000 Communists who left Bangxi in
October 1934, only 8,000-10,000 reached Shaanxi a
year later. In this romanticized painting, young
Mao is speaking to a group of soldiers in
spotless uniforms who look up at him with
worshipful expressions.
Japanese in Shanghai, 1937 The rise of Chinese
nationalism challenged the control that Japan
exercised over Manchuria through Chinese
warlords. In 1937 the Japanese military and the
ultranationalists decided to use a minor incident
near Beijing as a pretext for a general attack.
The Nationalist government joined in a united
front with the Communists and fought hard to halt
the Japanese. But Shanghai, China's leading port,
fell to the invading Japanese in November of that
year. These jubilant infantry troops have
successfully stormed the city's North Station. In
China, the Japanese won the battles but they
could not win the war.
Partitions of Czechoslovakia and Poland,
  • Germanys expansion inevitably meant the
    victimization of Austria, Czechoslovakia, and
    Poland. With the failure of the Western powers
    appeasement policy and the signing of the
    Nazi-Soviet pact, the stage for the war was set.
    Hitler and the Stalin invaded and divided up
    Poland on September 1, 1939 and WWII officially
    began on September 3, 1939.

Hitler and officers in Paris with Eiffel tower
  • Adolf Hitler made his only visit to Paris on
    June 16, 1940, three days after his troops
    occupied the city. Hitler, who considered himself
    an artist, was accompanied by his architect
    Albert Speer (left) and his favorite sculptor
    Arno Bekker (right).

Roosevelt and Churchill
  • President Franklin Roosevelt and Prime Minister
    Winston Churchill sign the Atlantic Charter,
    August 14, 1941.

Adolf Hitler believed that his relentless terror
bombing of London--the "blitz"--could break the
will of the British people in 1940. He was wrong.
The blitz caused enormous destruction, but
Londoners went about their business with courage
and calm determination, as this unforgettable
image of a milkman in the rubble suggests.
  Axis Europe, 1941
  • On the eve of the German invasion of the Soviet
    Union, a combination of annexations, occupations,
    and alliances had created a German-Italian Axis
    that bestrode most of western Europefrom Norway
    and Finland in the north to Greece in the south,
    and from Poland in the east to France in the
    west. Britain, the Soviet Union, a number of
    insurgent groups, and, eventually, the US faced a
    difficult prospect in assaulting the Axiss
    fortress Europe.

Stalingrad, November 1942 From September 1942
until the German surrender early in February
1943, Stalingrad, on the Volga River, saw some of
the heaviest fighting of World War II. The Soviet
victory, in the face of incredible casualties,
was arguably the turning point in the war in

D-Day 1944 During the Normandy Invasions at Omaha
Beach, June 6, 1944, airborne paratroopers landed
behind German coastal fortifications around
midnight, and American and British forces hit
several beaches at daybreak as Allied ships and
bombers provided cover. American troops secured
full control of Omaha Beach by nightfall, but at
a price of 3,000 casualties. Allied air power
prevented the Germans from bringing up reserves
and counterattacking.

  World War II in the Pacific  
Nagasaki bomb
  • Three days after the U.S. dropped the first
    atomic bomb on Hiroshima, it exploded a second
    bomb over Nagasaki on August 9, 1945. Despite
    these terrible blows, Japan still did not
    surrender for another week.
