The Rats of Tobruk hold a special place in Australian military history for the role they played in the Siege of Tobruk in World War II. Besieged by General Erwin Rommel's undefeated Afrika Korps, the Rats relied upon ingenuity and dogged determination to provide the Allies with a morale-boosting victory.  pproximately 14,000 Australian and 12,000 British and Indian troops were involved.

B b Write a paragraph about each of the underlined topics.   If possible, try to use some of the topics from your lists.   European Front   skskskskskskskskskSkylar - the invasion of Italy started on September 3rd, 1943. This happened during the early stages of the Italian campaign of World War II. General Sir Harold Alexander was the one who “called” this invasion. His hopes were to take out Italy completely to reduce the shipping capacity that was needed to help the allied forces.  *if the next person wants to talk about what actually happened*   umbrElla - The invasion took place on mainland Italy. The main “invasion force” happened around Salerno on September 9 on the west coast, while two other operations took place in Calabria and Taranto   Emma - After Germany had started invading all the surrounding countries, France was one of the first countries to declare war on Germany. By 1940, they were invaded by the Nazis and quickly fell. After this, they were divided when Germany created what was called Vichy France (because of the city of Vichy which was made capital). They took over the southeastern section of France and installed their own people and military to rule it. The northern and western sections remained free for a couple of years, but later in 1942 were taken by Germany as well.   Gabe - from 1943 to 1945 a number of 60,000 allies were killed and 38,000 - 150,000 Germans were killed just in Italy the number of allied casualties were over 320,000 while the german casualties were over 330,000 Italy suffered 200,000    Illyana-The Allied invasion of Italy took place, during World War II (1939-1945). Having driven German and Italian troops from North Africa and Sicily, the Allies decided to invade Italy in September 1943. Landing in Calabria and south of Salerno, British and American forces pushed inland.   Audrey - Egypt had no part of the war but the Suez Canal (which is in Egypt) did. It’s a passage between the Mediterranean to the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean. It made it where you wouldn’t have to go all the way around Africa to get from Europe to the Indian Ocean. The British had control of it and obviously wanted to protect it so it would stay theirs but the Axis (Germany, Italy, Japan) would have loved to have it. So in Oct. 1942, the British are able to defeat the Axis and push them back all the way to Tunisia.   Pacific Front   Ella - The battle of Midway took place in the pacific, in June 1942. It was a naval battle that took place six months after the attack on pearl harbor and one month after the Battle of the Coral Sea. The united states navy defeated a fleet of the Imperial Japanese Navy. A  Military historian named  John Keegan called it "the most stunning and decisive blow in the history of naval warfare"   Emma - Another major battle within the pacific front of the war was the battle of Okinawa. On April 1st of 1945, the allies invaded the Japanese island. For this battle, the United States created the tenth army, which was unlike any others because it had its own Air Force and naval forces. This battle was remembered for the intense level of fighting and was referred to as the “typhoon of steel”. The battle lasted 82 days and didn’t end until June 22.   Illyana- The Pacific War, sometimes called the Asia–Pacific War and  was the center of World War II that was fought in the Pacific ocean and Asia also Okinawa became the bloodiest battle of the Pacific   Audrey - In 1944 the US was taking control of islands close to the Japanese mainland. They used the islands for their B-29 bombers to land and take off because they were way too heavy to land on a carrier. They could land on the island, refuel or get supplies and then take off again. With this, the US could get bombing attacks directly on Japan so they could get closer to the end of the war.   Skylar - the Doolittle raid, also known as the Tokyo raid, was named after Colonel Doolittle, who started this raid. What Colonel Doolittle wanted to happen was for the united states to attack japan, and bomb the mainland. Their plan was to send a carrier that could drop the bomb about 1000 miles away from the coast. After that they planned to send 16 B-25 bombers to the mainland of Japan- they actually followed through with their plan, but it didn’t quite go as planned, 14 of the 80 crewmen went MIA or died, but the united states still took this as a win.   Gabe - The Pacific Front was the allies against the Japanese and the Japanese wouldn't stop fighting man woman child and its because the generals convinced the people that Americans were evil and we were cannibals going to eat them “talk about fake news” finally after 2 atomic bombs Japanese surrendered and if you have ever read Japanese culture its not in there nature to surrender they actually would have there generals suicide rather than surrender but i heard a story about the Japanese and how when they surrendered to the allies the Americans didn't humiliate them they just treated them as equals and the person telling the story says that even if they were having someone surrender to them they would have humiliated the surrendering country which i think is something amazing about Americans as a whole because weren't there to win we were there to end the conflict   Mediterranean Front and Africa Gabe - North Africa didn't go so well for the Britain Italy started deploying motorized divisions along with Germany's Afrika Korps they pushed the British 100 mi east basically into Egypt and after that, the Siege of Tobruk began and they advanced into egypt    Illyana- one major resistance was the North African campaign of the Second World War took place in North Africa from 10 June 1940 to 13 May 1943. It included campaigns fought in the Libyan and Egyptian deserts and in Morocco and Algeria, as well as Tunisia   Skylar - the Battle of the Mediterranean was the name for the naval campaign that was fought in the Mediterranean Sea. this lasted from the 10th of June 1940 to May 2nd, 1945. This battle was mostly fought between the Italian and the British. They were mainly supported by Poland, Greece, the Netherlands, and Australia. American naval and air units joined in 1942. Audrey -    The Holocaust   Ella - The holocaust was a time between 1941 and 1945 where around six million European Jews lost their life due to Nazi Germany. Most of them lost their lives from having to do extreme labor or dying in gas chambers, lol brutal     Illyana- during the Holocaust all Jews were made to wear a yellow star of David on all of their clothes and if Nazis saw you without it you were brutally beaten most of the time to death. Most of the Jews went into hiding during those four years like Anne Frank who is famous for hiding out in the walls which was made a bunker for her and her family above her father’s bank(also my family has a swastika patch which is cool but at the same time disturbing because we are Christians)   Gabe - The german Wehrmacht which was there military became like police but with more power and they participated in the holocaust this consisted of searching homes to find jews or anyone they just didnt like would work take them as prisoners and most likely kill them they also killed pow’s and they allowed scientists to do horrible things to these people   Skylar - im going to talk a little bit more about Anne Frank. Anne Frank is one of the most talked-about people during the holocaust. She kept a diary that was published. She talked about her struggles and how scared she was. The diary was written for two years from 1942 to 1944. It has movies and plays to kind of try to show the way she lived. Audrey - During the Holocaust around 6 million Jews were killed. This was ⅔ of the Jews in Europe and 1.5 million of them were children. It wasn’t just the Jews being killed though. Over 10 million civilians were killed, 3 million prisoners of war, and hundreds of thousands of both gypsies and people with disabilities were also killed. Leaders Illyana- The Allied powers were led by Winston Churchill (United Kingdom); Joseph Stalin (Soviet Union); Charles de Gaulle (France); and Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman (United States). The Axis powers were led by Adolf Hitler (Germany), Benito Mussolini (Italy), and Hideki Tojo (Japan)   Ella - Adolf Hitler was the leader of the Nazi Party as well as a German politician. His dictatorship lasted from 1933 -1945. He was not nice. He invaded Poland on September 1st 1939 initiating the war and he played a big role in the holocaust. He died by shooting himself in the head.   Gabe - Joseph Stalin he was a leader of the soviet union or Russia today he was, in fact, a dictator which means basically whatever he says goes and he says communism is cool so it kinda sucked especially when he decides that he wants to do a great purge and imprison and kill about 700,000 people   Skylar - Harry Truman was the president of the United States, he served as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. In the two months that he was apart of World War II he dropped two atomic bombs, one on Hiroshima and the second one on Nagasaki, both during warfare to end the war.  Aftermath  Ella - after World War II ended, millions of people were homeless. Europe's economy had collapsed and most of its industrial infrastructure had been destroyed. This caused the US Secretary of State George Marshall to come up a plan he called “European Recovery Program” later to be known as the “Marshall Plan”. Because of the plan, the US gave $13 billion, ($146 billion in 2018)  for the reconstruction of Western Europe.    Gabe - there was a lot of people who wanted to execute all germans affiliated with war and America was like nuh-uh we are going to give them a fair trial and there was a lot of them that were killed still but there was quite a few who just got life sentences i mean its better than death   Skylar - When World War 2 ended it was the start of a new era. This started the rise of the united states, as well as the soviet union. Other places, like the united kingdom, were struggling through. Their economy had almost completely went to crap. The united states did help them by doing the lend-lease in 1941.    Illyana- Europe and Russia were hit the worst in the aftermath of WWII which actually help out us Americans build up our economy without the Europeans butting in. without WWII our world would be completely different

Landing in Calabria and south of Salerno, British and American forces pushed inland.   Audrey - Egypt had no part of the war but the Suez Canal (which is in Egypt) did. It’s a passage between the Mediterranean to the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean. It made it where you wouldn’t have to go all the way around Africa to get from Europe to the Indian Ocean. The British had control of it and obviously wanted to protect it so it would stay theirs but the Axis (Germany, Italy, Japan) would have loved to have it. So in Oct. 1942, the British are able to defeat the Axis and push them back all the way to Tunisia.   Pacific Front   Ella - The battle of Midway took place in the pacific, in June 1942. It was a naval battle that took place six months after the attack on pearl harbor and one month after the Battle of the Coral Sea. The united states navy defeated a fleet of the Imperial Japanese Navy. A  Military historian named  John Keegan called it "the most stunning and decisive blow in the history of naval warfare"   Emma - Another major battle within the pacific front of the war was the battle of Okinawa. On April 1st of 1945, the allies invaded the Japanese island. For this battle, the United States created the tenth army, which was unlike any others because it had its own Air Force and naval forces. This battle was remembered for the intense level of fighting and was referred to as the “typhoon of steel”. The battle lasted 82 days and didn’t end until June 22.   Illyana- The Pacific War, sometimes called the Asia–Pacific War and  was the center of World War II that was fought in the Pacific ocean and Asia also Okinawa became the bloodiest battle of the Pacific   Audrey - In 1944 the US was taking control of islands close to the Japanese mainland. They used the islands for their B-29 bombers to land and take off because they were way too heavy to land on a carrier. They could land on the island, refuel or get supplies and then take off again. With this, the US could get bombing attacks directly on Japan so they could get closer to the end of the war.   Skylar - the Doolittle raid, also known as the Tokyo raid, was named after Colonel Doolittle, who started this raid. What Colonel Doolittle wanted to happen was for the united states to attack japan, and bomb the mainland. Their plan was to send a carrier that could drop the bomb about 1000 miles away from the coast. After that they planned to send 16 B-25 bombers to the mainland of Japan- they actually followed through with their plan, but it didn’t quite go as planned, 14 of the 80 crewmen went MIA or died, but the united states still took this as a win.   Gabe - The Pacific Front was the allies against the Japanese and the Japanese wouldn't stop fighting man woman child and its because the generals convinced the people that Americans were evil and we were cannibals going to eat them “talk about fake news” finally after 2 atomic bombs Japanese surrendered and if you have ever read Japanese culture its not in there nature to surrender they actually would have there generals suicide rather than surrender but i heard a story about the Japanese and how when they surrendered to the allies the Americans didn't humiliate them they just treated them as equals and the person telling the story says that even if they were having someone surrender to them they would have humiliated the surrendering country which i think is something amazing about Americans as a whole because weren't there to win we were there to end the conflict   Mediterranean Front and Africa Gabe - North Africa didn't go so well for the Britain Italy started deploying motorized divisions along with Germany's Afrika Korps they pushed the British 100 mi east basically into Egypt and after that, the Siege of Tobruk began and they advanced into egypt    Illyana- one major resistance was the North African campaign of the Second World War took place in North Africa from 10 June 1940 to 13 May 1943. It included campaigns fought in the Libyan and Egyptian deserts and in Morocco and Algeria, as well as Tunisia   Skylar - the Battle of the Mediterranean was the name for the naval campaign that was fought in the Mediterranean Sea. this lasted from the 10th of June 1940 to May 2nd, 1945. This battle was mostly fought between the Italian and the British. They were mainly supported by Poland, Greece, the Netherlands, and Australia. American naval and air units joined in 1942. Audrey -    The Holocaust   Ella - The holocaust was a time between 1941 and 1945 where around six million European Jews lost their life due to Nazi Germany. Most of them lost their lives from having to do extreme labor or dying in gas chambers, lol brutal     Illyana- during the Holocaust all Jews were made to wear a yellow star of David on all of their clothes and if Nazis saw you without it you were brutally beaten most of the time to death. Most of the Jews went into hiding during those four years like Anne Frank who is famous for hiding out in the walls which was made a bunker for her and her family above her father’s bank(also my family has a swastika patch which is cool but at the same time disturbing because we are Christians)   Gabe - The german Wehrmacht which was there military became like police but with more power and they participated in the holocaust this consisted of searching homes to find jews or anyone they just didnt like would work take them as prisoners and most likely kill them they also killed pow’s and they allowed scientists to do horrible things to these people   Skylar - im going to talk a little bit more about Anne Frank. Anne Frank is one of the most talked-about people during the holocaust. She kept a diary that was published. She talked about her struggles and how scared she was. The diary was written for two years from 1942 to 1944. It has movies and plays to kind of try to show the way she lived. Audrey - During the Holocaust around 6 million Jews were killed. This was ⅔ of the Jews in Europe and 1.5 million of them were children. It wasn’t just the Jews being killed though. Over 10 million civilians were killed, 3 million prisoners of war, and hundreds of thousands of both gypsies and people with disabilities were also killed. Leaders Illyana- The Allied powers were led by Winston Churchill (United Kingdom); Joseph Stalin (Soviet Union); Charles de Gaulle (France); and Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman (United States). The Axis powers were led by Adolf Hitler (Germany), Benito Mussolini (Italy), and Hideki Tojo (Japan)   Ella - Adolf Hitler was the leader of the Nazi Party as well as a German politician. His dictatorship lasted from 1933 -1945. He was not nice. He invaded Poland on September 1st 1939 initiating the war and he played a big role in the holocaust. He died by shooting himself in the head.   Gabe - Joseph Stalin he was a leader of the soviet union or Russia today he was, in fact, a dictator which means basically whatever he says goes and he says communism is cool so it kinda sucked especially when he decides that he wants to do a great purge and imprison and kill about 700,000 people   Skylar - Harry Truman was the president of the United States, he served as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. In the two months that he was apart of World War II he dropped two atomic bombs, one on Hiroshima and the second one on Nagasaki, both during warfare to end the war.  Aftermath  Ella - after World War II ended, millions of people were homeless. Europe's economy had collapsed and most of its industrial infrastructure had been destroyed. This caused the US Secretary of State George Marshall to come up a plan he called “European Recovery Program” later to be known as the “Marshall Plan”. Because of the plan, the US gave $13 billion, ($146 billion in 2018)  for the reconstruction of Western Europe.    Gabe - there was a lot of people who wanted to execute all germans affiliated with war and America was like nuh-uh we are going to give them a fair trial and there was a lot of them that were killed still but there was quite a few who just got life sentences i mean its better than death   Skylar - When World War 2 ended it was the start of a new era. This started the rise of the united states, as well as the soviet union. Other places, like the united kingdom, were struggling through. Their economy had almost completely went to crap. The united states did help them by doing the lend-lease in 1941.    Illyana- Europe and Russia were hit the worst in the aftermath of WWII which actually help out us Americans build up our economy without the Europeans butting in. without WWII our world would be completely different

Erwin Johannes Eugen Rommel fue un militar y uno de los más famosos mariscales de campo alemanes durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Recibió el apodo de Zorro del Desierto (Wüstenfuchs) a raíz de su habilidad como comandante del Afrika Korps durante la campaña del norte de África entre 1941 y 1943. Posteriormente recibió el mando de las unidades alemanas estacionadas en Francia para contener la previsible invasión aliada, que acabó materializándose en Normandía. Rommel es recordado frecuentemente no solo por sus señaladas proezas militares, sino por su caballerosidad con sus adversarios (fue uno de los mandos alemanes que se negó a obedecer la Kommandobefehl). Tras el atentado del 20 de julio de 1944 contra Adolf Hitler, fue acusado de haber participado en el mismo y obligado a suicidarse para evitar represalias contra su familia y su personal cercano.

Erwin Rommel (due to propaganda by Goebbels) was considered a hero to both the allies and the axis. "Only Napoleon had made a comparable impression on the British" -BH Lidell Hart. The following are major eras in his life: * WWI: As a junior officer, Rommel became the youngest man to win the Pour le Merite (the most prestigious award in the German Army) for his actions at the Battle of Longarone. * Between the Wars: Rommel wrote Infantry Attacks and Tank Attacks. This greatly impressed Hitler, and eventually led to gaining more power in the Army. * WWII (France): Led the 7th Panzer Divison (also known as the Ghost Divison) in a mad dash towards the Atlantic in the initial battle to conquer France. * WWII (Africa): Led the Afrika Korps in roller coast campaign across north Africa, the southern flank of Europe. He was finally defeated at the Battle of El Alamein. * WWII (Atlantic Wall): Submitted a plan for the defense of Europe which was tragically disregarded by the German command. * Rommel is suspected of plotting to assassinate the Fuhrer. Hitler forces him to commit suicide.
