American Family During World War 2

The American family has endured through many tough times and many amazing ages. None more so than World War 2. The dynamic of the American family had to change and evolve into a more modern, up- to-date family. There countless recollections by Veterans and survivors of World War 2 today of how things changed. Most in their childhoods during these troubled time cannot, however, recall many details of their distant pasts so we rely on what has been written and passed down from our Fathers and Grandfathers who fought that fight and fortunately lived to tell, and write about it.
One must explore the events leading up to America’s involvement in the Great War as many Americans will refer to this as the start of the war although it had been going on two years prior. The Great Depression and World War 1 led to many of the situations around the world at that time. The Treaty of Versailees is one such instance of a failed plan that led to violence. In his book The Economic Consequences of Peace, Keynes referred to the Treaty of Versailles as a "Carthaginian Peace", a misguided attempt to destroy Germany on behalf of French revanchism, rather than to follow the fairer principles for a lasting peace set out in President Woodrow Wilson's Fourteen Points, which Germany had accepted at the armistice. He stated: "I believe that the campaign for securing out of Germany the general costs of the war was one of the most serious acts of political unwisdom for which our statesmen have ever been responsible." Keynes had been the principal representative of the British Treasury at the Paris Peace Conference, and used in his passionate book arguments that he and others (including some US officials) had used at Paris. He believed the sums being asked of Germany in reparations were many times more than it was possible for Germany to pay, and that these would produce drastic instability.
The Great Depression devastating to all Americans. There were no countrymen who did not feel a bite...
