This lesson covers the American experience in World War II, emphasizing the role of American industry in overwhelming the Axis powers. American efforts in the Great Alliance include the invasion of North Africa, Sicily, Italy, then eventually Normandy in the Atlantic theater, while in the Pacific theater Admiral Nimitz and General MacArther engaged in an island-hopping strategy that opened the door to the invasion of Japan when the atomic bombs became ready.
