During World War I the world rapidly transformed by new technologies and moreover, owing to them the war had a bigger affect on people; the total number of casualties was over 37 million of both, military man and civilians.

The Civil War birthed an amazing new topic that is extremely important to us in our daily life today. The Civil War made people create new ideas in the medical field that affect us in so many ways. Everything that these people discovered we still use now, but the ideas might be a little more advanced today. Many ideas and other advancements helped doctors treat soldiers faster, which was extremely important due to the Civil War’s amazingly high death toll. The death toll was the highest it had ever been in a previous war involving America.
World War II had many effects on the world, one of which is the noticeable rise in patriotism and nationalism among the children of that era. The increase of duty to country can be attributed to the death of thousands of fathers, responsibilities of children to collect war materials, new forms of propaganda in the media, and the processes of rationing. These factors combined led the children to realize what their country was fighting for and encouraged the youth to become a part of the war effort. Although the extent to which the children actually aided in the war effort may never be known, it can be seen that the generation of children from World War II emerged from the war with a stronger sense of allegiance to the United States of America.
The 1940s connects to the influence of contemporary America because it was the decade that changed so many things in life not only the government. In general our world as we knew it changed for the better and worse. The 1940s did the most to influence contemporary America because the U.S culture and society had changed a lot especially the role of women, many families were greatly impacted. The aspect of technology was completely revolutionized. During the decade the wealth rebounded from despair; big business improved its flawed public status; income and wages reached new heights; and dominant original sectors of the economy urbanized, particularly in the fabrication of buyer goods and armed forces hardware.
