Why I chose this topic: Why I chose this topic I chose this topic because it is one of the wars that could have change the world completely. It was the first war that unconventional warfare was used, and a war that was fought in different environments throughout the world. It is war that society has been able to analyze, and learn for mistakes and victories to improve future modern warfare. I have always been intrigued by the World War II, especially the development of new military technology. How great leaders on the Allied and Axis sides conducted strategic military tactics in desert operations, the Pacific campaign, and mountain operations.
