World War II: Tactics, Weapons and the Holocaust
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.
