Harry S Truman did the right thing which was to avenge the victims of Pearl Harbor as well as the other Asian countries. Let's not forget to mention the comfort women who were the most victimized people within the War in the Pacific. The Two Atomic bombs were justifiable on why Japan's military power needed to end.

This is why Japan is so xenophobic to other types of Asians but not Europeans or Americans.

After the war Japan was nowhere near like how they were before. Everything changed in Japan. Literally Everything and are still the only country to ever get hit by a nuclear bomb in war.

Changed Japan forever. Politically, economically, religiously... everything.

Poland Lost 20% of population.

The capitol was destroyed in 80%.
East part of Poland was taken out and given east part of germany instead which was mostly destroyed by Red army pushing towards Berlin. Poland never get reparations. For next 45 years was slave of soviet union.

Their army wasn't big...because most of them were dead and they had to get their country back... in poland thiers a statue with running people representing that poland was very confident to get their land...sadly after WW2 every country agreed that the countries that destroyed some building in other countries had to pay the country they destroyed so they can rebuild it, germany didn't pay poland even though it was the most destroyed country in THE WORLD.

Well

They were first attacked which caused WW2

The US was affected by WWII in a good way, surprisingly. The war picked the country out of the Great Depression in the '40s. It created more jobs and more production of supplies, also. - Turkey

You mean except for all those white crosses and body bags? As to any real economic benefit, America didn't finish paying off its war debt (its "borrowing" from the Fed and paying off on war bonds) until the early 1980s. By the way, thanks to FDR's socialist policies, the depression in America lasted 8 years longer than the rest of the industrialized world.

We flat out almost went bankrupt fighting the Japanese. - Metalhead1997

9 Philippines Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

The most damaged in world war II

Agreed

Though it probably wouldn't be first, many of the bloody battles were fought in the Philippines, notably the battle of Manila. Though not as many people were killed, most of the city was entirely leveled. Along with it years of Culture and many people's homes.

Many infrastructure were being built before the war, and nearly all was destroyed. Manila was a battlefield, thousands of soldiers and innocent people died resisting against the Japanese. Philippines was the last country to surrender in Southeast Asia.

During WW2 France was the second country most bombed by the Allies after Germany. It took seven times the tonnage of Allied bombs that the UK took from Nazi Germany. Roughly 75,000 tonnes of bombs were dropped on the UK (including Hitler's V missiles). In France, it's in the order of 518,000 tonnes.
