Video title: World War 2 1941-1945

Use this Discovering American History video entitled World War 2 1941 to 1945 to study the American involvement in World War II and its effects on the United States. Learn how at the height of the Depression, America tried to legislate isolation from any future foreign conflicts by enacting a series of Neutrality Laws, but as wars broke out first in Asia and Africa and then in Europe, the U.S. gradually amended these laws or President Roosevelt managed to find ways to moderate their effects. Discover how even before Pearl Harbor, the U.S. was involved in a naval conflict with Germany in the North Atlantic. U.S. policy sought to deal with Hitler's Germany as the most serious enemy, but the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor partly changed that. Discover how the U.S. and its allies were on the defensive until mid-1942 when the North Africa counter-offensive, the Battle of Stalingrad in Soviet Russia, and the Coral Sea-Midway victories in the Pacific marked the turning of the tide.
