Western Civ 2 Lesson 135: From the readings and lectures, in what sense did World War II become more “global” during its first two or two-and-a-half years?

Whenever the World War 2 began in 1939 and when most of Europe was invaded by Nazi’s around that time the war became more global during its first two or two-and-a-half years. Franklin D. Roosevelt secretly wanted America to partake in the war and go against the Germans, but 75-80% of the civilians didn’t want to be part if the war. And who would want to just join something they aren’t part of, and that won’t bring any benefit to them. The people are worried enough hearing about the war not having much peace, and now they hear about going into the war and helping the soviet union. I’m sure they definitely weren’t too happy to find out such news. Franklin however stated that America should stay neutral, but the British had access to the american weaponry for the war. Soo in a way america is not staying in the neutral and definitely helping out with the war. Also, he signed the Atlantic Charter with Prime minister Churchill, which was basically a war plan outlining the objectives of the Allies.

While the soviet union fought with the Germans, in the meantime the Japanese people wanted to gain some more territory in their empire for themselves. They fought with China and also occupied other parts of Asia and the Pacific to gain that territory. Another sudden attack was brought on by the Japanese, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, a US port. Finally, the signing of the Japanese-soviet non-aggression pact in April 1941 brought another facet to the world wide war.
