The three main long term effects of 2nd world war are provided below: The economy of U.S remained healthy and the expansion of middle class started but the struggle of cold war between the remaining two superpowers has dominated the affairs of the world for more time. Many countries in Asia and Europe have been divided; civil wars have been launched with highly expensive conventional and nuclear weapons. US became the dominating economic power of the world. All of the nations that were once in competition with U.S now have been devastated due to war. The homeland of US was untouched by the events of war and various aspects of the war helped the economy of US to grow.
UN was one result after the Second World War. After the initial world war, the allies started creating the nation’s league where the purpose remained on keeping European Peace and stabilities. This was the initial world organization historically but as various issues causing the Second World War.
Not that an urge for oil was the mere reason of Hitler to desire starting a war. He long wished when looking at west, that Russia is his key estate for German Empire expansion. What if Hitler had gone through a distinct path? It is not like there wasn’t a route by which Hitler could not have won but I believe that the world then would have been a horrific place to live in. I can only wonder how it would have been if Hitler’s invasion via Middle east would have happened instead of USSR and then matched this actions with the essential support of Rommel for a marching via Egypt and Saudi Arabia for joint the troops that advance through Turkey. With this position of the axis forces, it is quiet easy to view a very distinct World War 2 end. Most of the Middle East section would have been under Rommel within Germany. This would have provided them with control on almost every region which is non-English speaking. Britain would have been held external for some time but this would seem not likely that finally the powers of Axis would have controlled most of the world with U.S restricted to the west hemisphere. It might not have been possible for U.S alone to turn back the powers then and we may have viewed an alternative universe.
