Ideas to remember
•What were Hitler's foreign policy aims? Was he bent on conquest in the east and dominance in the west, or did he simply want to return Germany to its 1914 boundaries?
•Why did Britain and France adopt a policy of appeasement in the 1930's? What were its main features? Did the appeasers buy the West valuable time to prepare for war by their actions at Munich in 1938?
• How was Hitler able to defeat France so easily in 1940? Why was the air war against Britain a failure? Why did Hitler invade Russia? Why did the invasion fail? Could it have succeeded?
• Why did Japan attack the United States at Pearl Harbor? What was the significance of American intervention in the war? Why did the United States drop the atomic bombs on Japan? Did it make the right decision to do so?
• Who contributed most to the defeat of Hitler, Britain, the United States or the Soviet Union? Support your answer.
• How and why did the Soviet Union and its wartime allies come into conflict?
•What impact did the war have on the domestic fronts of Britain, Germany, France, and the Soviet Union? In what ways did the civilian population of each country suffer? Assess especially the propaganda battle.
•How would you characterize the Vichy regime in France? Who supported it and why? Who opposed it?  Should those who were associated with it be condemned?
