Summary
"The 1930s was dominated with the battle against the Great Depression. In response, authoritarian regimes emerged in several countries in Europe, in particular the Third Reich in Germany. Weaker states such as Ethiopia, China and Poland were invaded by expansionist world powers, ultimately leading to World War II by the decade's end. There were also some high points with the wedding of the Duke of Kent, the first Australian Airmail launched and Bradman's wonderful innings at the third test in Leeds, the decade that Sir Malcolm Campbell managed to break his own land speed record on Daytona Beach USA and Sydney harbour Bridge is officially opened. The first half of the 1940s was dominated by the consequences of World War II that lingered well into the second half of the decade, with a war-weary Europe divided between the jostling spheres of influence of the West and the Soviet Union. Churchill was on tour, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor and Allied landings were undertaken in North Africa. At wars end there was the atom bomb and VJ celebrations. The post-war world encouraged decolonialization and the emergence of new states and governments, with India, Burma, Pakistan, Israel, Vietnam and others declaring independence, rarely without bloodshed"--Container
