World War II
How it all started
World War II started all because of this man called 'Adolf Hitler.' He hated the Jews as they were really wealthy and he thought that he should be the best person in the world. So he gathered up an army of Germans to fight against the Allies, who were Britain, France and America.They threatened Poland that they were going to drop bombs.Then World War II started.
They used tanks to blow up other countries.The tanks were made of steel, titanium and iron.
It was only in November 1917, at the battle of Cambria, that tanks were used effectively for the first time. Fleets of tanks flattened barbed wire, crossed enemy trenches, and acted as shields for the advancing soldiers. Tanks played an important role in the Allied attacks throughout 1918 .
