With much of the decade, 1940’s, dominated by World War II, the 40’s have not gone down in history as the happiest of times. But the 40’s had much more to them than war. Dancing, jazz, fabulous fashion, classic film, and even the first computer all helped to define the decade as well.

Marvel Comics introduced the superhero Captain America, in March 1941. After approximately 14 years, carving at Mount Rushmore concluded in October 1941. Diarist Anne Frank and her family go into hiding in the “Achterhuis” on July 6, 1942, in Amsterdam.

In the 40’s WW2 was starting to fire up. The two dates most often mentioned as the start of World War II are July 7, 1937, when the Marco Polo Bridge Incident led to a prolonged war between Japan and China, and September 1, 1939, when Germany invaded Poland, which led Britain and France to declare war on Hitler’s Nazi state in retaliation.

When Hitler started to rule over, everyone was terrified. Hilter was a German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party and Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and Führer (“Leader”) of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. Hitler had gone all around Germany and more to dictate all of the Jewish Americans. Among the world leaders of the 20th century, Adolf Hitler is one of the most notorious. He was the leader and founder of the Nazi Party. Hitler was responsible for starting World War II and unleashing the genocide of the Holocaust.

On another note, the 1940’s introduced some to world’s most treasured heart throbs. People like, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, and Jimmy Stewart.
