War solves problems, but the wastefulness of war can only be felt by the people's families, friends, and of course, the person in the trenches. Hundreds, and sometimes thousands, dying at the hands of other war soldiers whose only purpose is to kill. Bloodshed all over the world because of greed and the human lust for power and fame. The World Wars were fought over cruelty and punishment toward Americans after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Throughout the years there have been many wars fought over many different disputes or different reasons. This report will touch upon some of the many effects that the World Wars led to.
The human loss from the war was mainly from the USSR. At the time, Germany was the strongest power in Europe yet she remained burdened with political misery. While it was beginning the process of destroying Europe, the war also began to fulfill prophecy. In the nineteenth century, a Frenchman, Alexis de Tocqueville, foresaw a future in which the world would be divided between the United States and Russia. Both would expand east and west until the buffers between them were absorbed or subordinated. Europe was impoverished and exhausted, Asia was already in chaos after the collapse of China.
Those in ideas and attitudes probably exceeded changes in political states. In an area of mass attacks, mass slaughter, and mass production, the common man at last came into his own.
European countries channeled their goods into war that caused social changes across the country. European society was unified as a result of working together for a common goal. Lack of luxurious items during the war made uniform clothing more common. Europeans never wore fancy, lavish costumes again. Uniforms were the first and most dramatic changed for apparel.
Women became a bigger part of society. Because men were at war, they took most of the jobs, which men previously held. In England, the proportion of woman workers rose strikingly in public transportation, banking, and commerce.
