Assignment: Reflection: The Lasting Impact of World War II

Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements

During World War II, communities, families, and nations were torn apart and destroyed by warfare, political policies, and relocation, among other factors. The effects of wartime devastation and atrocities inspired survivors to look for ways to keep the peace, or at least resist outside aggression. Since the end of World War II, the world has witnessed the formation of global regulatory committees, globalization, and continued advances in technology and science, all affecting the way people live. In some ways the world has come together; in others, it has come apart as nations continue to build alliances and, at the same time, fight wars.
