World War II: Tactics, Weapons and the Holocaust
From watchmojo.com, produced by WatchMojo
The Second World War was fought amid evolving technologies and ideologies, and as such it became one of the bloodiest wars in history. Total war put civilians at risk for the first time, and new weapons like German u-boats and the unprecedented use of air warfare facilitated mass casualties. However, the concentration camp was the Nazis’ worst weapon. They kept marginalized groups in horrible conditions, and many of those who survived the camps were then killed in gas chambers in the Holocaust. In Part 6 of our series on WWII, WatchMojo.com explores some of the tactics and weapons used during the Second World War. (4:08)

The First Mobilization of the Civil War
From hippocampus.org, produced by University of California
This video is accompanied by text. "The artillery shells fired by Confederate soldiers on Fort Sumter, which was still federal property and controlled by U.S. military forces, marked the start of the Civil War. Lincoln shifted his attention from finding a peaceful end to the North-South conflict, to mobilizing military forces to defend the United States from the Confederates, whom he now considered enemy aggressors. On April 15, 1861, three days after the barrage of shells rained down on Fort Sumter, President Lincoln called for 75,000 militiamen to defend the nation’s honor..." (Professionally produced material with scholarly ideas and arguments.)

World War II: Nuclear Bombings of Japan
From watchmojo.com, produced by WatchMojo
Late in the Second World War, the U.S. government was warned that Nazi Germany might try to create their own atomic weapons. At this, the Manhattan Project was approved, and this would help them create their own nuclear bombs. After extensive research, development and testing, the two bombs were ready. Once the Germans had surrendered, Japan seemed the next likely target. And so on August 6, 1945, the first of two bombs was dropped on that country, killing tens of thousands instantly and injuring countless others. Not long after the second bomb, Japan surrendered and the War ended. In Part 7 of our series on WWII, WatchMojo.com learns more about the nuclear bombings of Japan during World War II. (3:46)
