What made US enter the Second World War?

Asked by Topperlearning User 30th June 2014, 10:53 AM
Answered by Expert

The consequences faced by US in the First World War were terrifying and unforgettable. They were unwilling to go through it all over again. However, they could not stay out of war for too long. This was because:

 Japan was expanding its power in the east and had occupied French Indo-China

 It was planning attacks on US naval bases in the Pacific.

 When Japan extended its support to Hitler and bombed the US base at Pearl Harbor, the US could not resist entering the Second World War.
