The Great Depression crippled the economies of Europe and the United States Knight of Germany: Oswald Boelcke German Ace. There is relatively very little time devoted to social aspects, and those that are, are not centered on the most important and striking aspects of WWII. This was a war like no other in its scale of human tragedy and suffering, particularly civilian, and in its almost unfathomable cruelty of the warring sides – the Nazis, their collaborators, and the Japanese being the strongest examples The Perfect Summer.

Japan also sought to secure additional natural resources, such as oil and iron ore, due in part to the lack of natural resources on Japan's own home islands 25 DIVISION 75 Infantry Brigade Worcestershire Regiment 1/8th Battalion : 1 September 1918 - 28 February 1919 (First World War, War Diary, WO95/2251/2). The German King Tiger, for instance, was not included as it was unreliable, slow, and only 484 were produced. It proved more useful dug-in as a gun emplacement than for maneuver, hardly a great recommendation for a tank.

Countries like Angola and Mozambique now report as many anti-personnel landmines buried beneath the earth as people treading it. The proliferation of small arms in Africa has become an internationally recognized crisis undermining global development and breeding a new generation of child soldiers. This past September, Sec. of State Albright told the UN Security Council Ministerial on Africa that "we should move now to curb arms transfers to zones of conflict in Africa....[and] we must put in place responsible arms transfer practices that are effective worldwide."
