iwo jima
Iwo Jima
  • Known as operation detachment

  • U.S was trying to conquer an island (Iwo Jima Island)

  • They wanted to use Okinawa as a base for air operation
  • Last battle between the U.S and Japan
  • The U.S won the war
  • Throughout all the battles between Japan and U.S, we learn that Japan was kind of the bad guys because they mostly started everything. They express themselves as superiors towards the U.S and anyone who tried to stop them. They accomplished terrible things such as the Rape of Nanking when lots of females got raped and they killed many people.
  • Even though they were kind of behind all of this, every time they fell down and they were defeated by the U.S and their allies, they got right back up and they continued to try defeating them. They didn’t want to surrender at all, anyone who surrendered would be killed. That was why they lost.
  • The action of these two countries provided the world to go to War because so many people were dying, Germany and Japan were killing people. They all wanted power and they would do anything to get a hold of that. The U.S were also a little responsible but it wasn’t entirely their fault.
  • To prevent this whole thing from happening again, one necessary step is to make sure when there are problem, you talk it out first and compromise. If they did compromise, this would've never happened and just because of them not talking it out, many people died
