What were the short and long term effects of World War II?
World War II led to the defeat of the Axis Powers—Germany, Italy, and Japan—as well as the end of their occupying other countries, including those in Western Europe, North Africa, and parts of Asia. For the US, the war ended the Great Depression, as the efforts both abroad and domestic put people back to work and solidified the country's place as a world superpower. But WWII also led to the Cold War, which put the US and the Soviet Union against each other.
