japanese summary
Japanese Summary
  • The actions of Japan provoked the world to go to war because Japan wanted to show that it was the power it had. They murdered 100,000s of thousands of people to prove this. Japans motives were to show that it was the superior power in Asia. They did many horrific things to do so. This included the rape of woman, and killing unborn children. Japan also killed 100,000s American and Filipino soldiers. After years of fighting, America was victorious. This was bad for Japan. It resulted in the bombing of Hiroshima. The Americans needed these victories in Okinawa and Hiroshima in order to send planes into Japan.
  • The actions of the Axis Powers provoked the world to go to war because they were on a rampage. They went around killing people with the intention to spread their empires. They were only successful in some of their battles. Germany lost to Britain and Russia, while Japan lost to America. The allies couldn’t allow Japan and Germany to try and gain domination over their continents. If they didn’t do anything about this, Japan and Germany would have global domination. Both countries would be colossal in power.
  • To stop this from happening again, dictatorship needs to be expelled. Most countries should turn into a democracy. Democracy gives everyone a chance to state their opinions. It also doesn’t give one person all the power. Dictatorship is bad because one person has all the power which results in bad things happening. Hitler was the dictator of Germany and killed millions of people with no mercy. Japan was a militarized country and it was lead by a Emperor Shōwa whom also killed millions of people trying to gain superiority in Asia.
