History - Reply for Carlos, Personal Statement

What three events do you believe were the most crucial turning points of World War II? Would you argue that the European Theater or the Pacific Theater posed the greater challenges to the Allies? The first turning point that I believe is crucial is United States entry to WWII after Japan attacks Pearl Harbor. I believe that without the participation of the United States to WWII it would have been a close call on who might have won the war between the Allies and the Axis. The second turning point would have to be the defeat of the Germans on Stalingrad. According to militaryeducation.org (2011), “The Battle of Stalingrad 23 August 1942 – February 1943 was the bloodiest war in WWII has around 1.7 million casualties and crippling losses hurt the Germen offensive as well as dented their confidence.” (Pg. 1). The last turning point in my opinion is the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. History.com (2018) state in their article “Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki”, “Three days later, a second B-29 dropped another A-bomb on Nagasaki, killing an estimated 40,000 people. Japan’s Emperor Hirohito announced his country’s unconditional surrender in World War II in a radio address on August 15, citing the devastating power of “a new and most cruel bomb.” (Pg. 1). These 3 major events were the most crucial turning points in my opinion, and I say in my opinion because many Historians argue to this day on what the turning points of WWII were. I would argue that the European Theater posed a higher threat than the Pacific Theater during WWII. The biggest threat in WWII were the Germens even though the Pacific theater was menacing on the allies it was not as bad as in Europe. An expanding Germany with major victories already in Europe, and the horrific Holocaust at the same time going on, made the European Theater a greater challenge and a bigger focus for the allies.
