I believe that World War II could have been prevented by the US being more involved in other countries problems. The US could’ve stepped in when Hitler asked to take over those territories. Also I think World War II could’ve have been prevented by keeping peace between each country and stopping Hitler before he got to powerful. If the Allied powers have taken action it might have prevented the outbreak of World War II. For example:
* If the US sent troops into the territories being invaded by Hitler and provide military presence. This action might have prevented World War II by Hitler backing down which would lead to Hitler not being so powerful. This action was not taken because of the Great Depression and Isolationism.
*If Japan didn’t attack the American fleet at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. This action might have prevented World War II by the US not declaring war with Japan, Germany and Italy. This action was not taken because Japan was angry at the US because the US refused to sell oil and scrap metal to Japan.
*The US also could have tried to talk to each country and have them keep the peace between each other due to the harsh Treaty of Versailles. This action might have prevented World War II by Germany not having economic crisis and social pressures and Adolph Hitler not coming to rise. This action was not taken due to revenge and Isolationism.
*Britain and France could have been more strict to Hitler and realized Hitler was a liar earlier. This action might have prevented World War II by Hitler not having taken over those territories. This action was not taken because Britain and France were weak and didn’t want another war.
