Pinpointing the causes of a vast, global event like the Second World War is a challenging task for the historian. Events—especially enormous, multifaceted events—have multiple causes and multiple inputs. A proximate cause is an incident that appears to directly trigger an event, as the election of Abraham Lincoln in November and the shelling of Fort Sumter led to the outbreak of the Civil War. In the case of the Civil War, for example, historians often point to the growing sectional polarization that divided the nation in the s and s, the national debate over the future of slavery, and the divergent economic paths that distinguished North and South during the antebellum period. In the case of the Second World War, historians generally point to a series of conditions that helped contribute to its outbreak.
Cause and Effect: The Outbreak of World War II
The Agency's collection, begun in Washington, DC, during World War II, moved in to Maxwell Air Force Base, the site of Air University, to provide research facilities for professional military education students, the faculty, visiting scholars, and the general public. It consists today of over 70,, pages devoted to the history of the service, and represents the world's largest and most valuable organized collection of documents on US military aviation. Monday-Friday a. Documents requested by the general public will be sent to them. Potential visitors to the AFHRA are very strongly encouraged to contact the Agency to let us know when you plan to arrive and how long you plan to stay. We will attempt to accommodate all visitors, but security is tight and "drop-in" visitors may be denied entry, at least until the Agency staff can make the appropriate arrangements. NEWS us.
Louis Brown. Bristol and Philadelphia: Institute of Physics Publishing, Reviewed by Jonathan D. By the fall of , American submarines had sunk a large share of Japan's merchant marine, and their skippers were having trouble finding targets. In a typical mission, submarines would be sent to meet a convoy, locate the ships and escorts, and then conduct a night surface attack.
Joan Elizabeth Curran 26 February — 10 February was a Welsh physicist who played important roles in the development of radar and the atomic bomb during the Second World War. She invented chaff , a radar countermeasure technique credited with reducing losses among Allied bomber crews. She also worked on the development of the proximity fuse and the electromagnetic isotope separation process for the atomic bomb. Strothers, who "had the scientific equivalent of gardening green fingers",  was awarded a government grant to study for a higher degree, and elected to go to the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge, where she joined Sam Curran in a team under the direction of Philip Dee. They arrived on 1 September Instead of returning to the Cavendish, the team moved to Exeter , where Dee and three others worked on developing rockets as anti-aircraft weapons, while Strothers and Curran joined a group under John Coles working on the development of the proximity fuse. The system was a small, short-range, Doppler radar that used a clever circuit.

War made the state, and the state made war, but does this statement hold true today? Will it apply in the future? The consensus is that the absence of major war within the western world, post , did cause the war—state relationship to change, but each became significantly less important to the other. This article argues that the relationship was closer and deeper than has been assumed.
War , in the popular sense, a conflict between political groups involving hostilities of considerable duration and magnitude. In the usage of social science , certain qualifications are added.
