germany involvement in wwII-
WWII Started September 1, 1939 with the German invasion of Poland.
Started because of nationalism, fascism, and their expansion into other countries by Germany, Italy and Japan. Germany was the aggressor. It launched one unprovoked attack after another against all its neighbors except Switzerland and always brought with it one of the cruelest tyrannies in human history. Germany enslaved virtually all of Europe and attempted to exterminate whole populations. They murdered, simply murdered, six million Jews and at least five million Slavs. There were millions, probably tens of millions more deaths that were directly attributable to their rule, through starvation and other causes. In the end, Germany was completely defeated, their cities smashed, the country in ruins, dependent for its people's very survival on the charity of those it had tried to exterminate. They had also blamed everything on the Jews because Germany was in debt at the time. In the past war (World War 1) they lost and the had to pay for all the things they wrecked so they blamed the Jews and started World War 2 by putting the Jews in concentration and extermination camps and brutally murdering them by gassing them, or shooting them or by working them to death on grossly insufficient food.
