Prelude[edit] As soon as the German-Soviet war broke out, Churchill offered assistance to the Soviets and an agreement to this effect was signed on 12 July 1941.[2] Delegations had traveled between London and Moscow to arrange the implementation of this support and when the United States joined the war, the delegations included Washington in their meeting venues.

Tehran Conference

A Combined Chiefs of Staff committee was created to coordinate British and American operations as well as their support to the Soviet Union. Stalin obsessively wished to control everything in Moscow and was unwilling to risk journeys by air,[3] while Roosevelt was physically disabled and found travel grueling. Churchill was an avid traveler and had met with Roosevelt on two previous occasions in the United States and had also held two prior meetings with Stalin in Moscow.[2] In order to engineer this urgently needed meeting, Roosevelt tried to persuade Stalin to travel to Cairo.

The Treaty of Versailles was put together at the Paris Peace Conference starting in January 1919. The main signatories of the treaty were Britain (Prime Minister David Lloyd George), the USA (President Woodrow Wilson), France (Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau) and Italy (Prime Minister Vittorio Orlando). These leaders were known as the 'Big Four' and met to decide the fate of Germany after the First World War. So why is this treaty so significant? To answer this question, it is important to consider a number of issues. History - World War Two: Summary Outline of Key Events.

The British Soldier Who Killed Nazis with a Sword and a Longbow

Photo via WikiCommons The first thing the Nazi garrison on Vågsøy Island, Norway, would have heard when the British No. 3 Commando battalion landed on December 27, 1941, was the sudden blaring drone of bagpipes. One commando stood at the fore of the landing craft, facing the impending battle and playing the peppy, martial “March of the Cameron Men.” Upon coming to a halt onshore, the soldier jumped from the craft, hucked a grenade at the Germans, then drew a full sword and ran screaming into the fray. That maniacally fierce soldier was 35-year-old Lieutenant Colonel John Malcolm Thorpe Fleming Churchill, and his stunts at this battle, known as Operation Archery, were hardly the most bizarre and semi-suicidal of his life. For many war junkies and badass aficionados, Mad Jack’s exploits are the epitome of military romanticism.

These units would then cross to the western side and take the Ottoman forts at Kilitbahir, thereby disabling their heavy guns and allowing the navy to pass unhindered through the narrows of the Dardanelles. The British 29th Division would land across 5 beaches named S, V, W, X and Y at Cape Helles, on the southernmost tip of the peninsula. They would then advance as one force, first taking the high ground of Achi Baba and the nearby village of Krithia, before crossing to capture the forts defending the narrows.

The ANZAC battalions would land on Z beach, north of Kabatepe and advance inland, first capturing their own high ground objective, Hill 971 then another hill, Maltepe, closer to the Dardanelles, before reinforcing the British attack at Kilitbahir.

World War II in Color: American Bombers and Their Crews, 1942. Within weeks of the December 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor and America’s official entry into the Second World War, Allied forces in Europe activated the now-legendary VIII Bomber Command (often referred to as the Eighth Air Force ) to serve as the principal American force to attack Germany from the air.

Often in tandem with planes from the Royal Air Force, American B-24s and B-17s — or Flying Fortresses — from the “The Mighty 8th” would spend the next several years bombing strategic towns and cities in Nazi-held Europe. As a jumping off point for countless bombing runs, including many in broad daylight, the United States Army Air Forces (the predecessor of the U.S. Air Force) set up bases in England during the war. In 1942, LIFE’s Margaret Bourke-White spent time with the Bomber Command — an assignment that LIFE shared with its readers in an October 1942 feature notable, although hardly surprising, all these years later for its triumphant tone:

So when great-grandfather Reuben Day, 82, saw one of Hitler's terrifying V-2 rockets falling just off the coast of East Anglia he informed the police straight away. But despite Mr Day, then a teenage fishermen, showing police the unexploded rocket lying in the mud - it remained there largely undisturbed for 68 years. Over the years the deadly missile has only been approached by the occasional sailor using the 2ft of metal which protruded from the mudflats at low tide to moor their boats.
