Talking Maps : World War II
This standards-based program provides a comprehensive look at World War II by using maps to place key battles and events within their proper geographical location. The program begins with a look at how Europe's ruined infrastructures, economies and governments, along with the treaties following World War I, led to World War II. Students will follow events as Italy and Germany create Fascist dictatorships, form an alliance and deploy military expansions across Europe and Northern Africa, before Britain and the U.S. join forces and fight back. Maps and period footage trace the costly reversal of Axis gains and the Allies' steady push to Berlin. The program also explores the War in the Pacific, beginning with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Students will learn how the attacks brought the American and Asian continents into the war, making it a global conflict. Includes guide.
