My Great Granddad (My Fathers Side)
My great granddad’s name was David Rose. He was chaplain during World War II, but before that, he was a priest at Holy Comforter Episcopal Church. He wrote two books as well one about his perspective of the war and another about growing a strong mature faith in Christ.
What Was Going On in America
The president during World War Two while my great granddad was alive was Franklin Roosevelt who died a month before Germany surrendered in 1945. The population of America at that time was 132,164,569. The inventions of the time of World War Two included the famously explosive atomic bomb, the jerrycan, and synthetic rubber.
What Was Going on in the World
World War Two raged on all over the world and the most major attacks included the bombing of Pearl Harbor, an attack on or supply ships during World War Two. The leaders of the three main countries battling (besides USA) were Winston Churchill for Great Britain, USSR’s leader was Josef Stalin and Germany's, of course, was Adolf Hitler. Another important thing happened in the world while the battles raged on in Europe, two scientists discovered DNA and shared it with the word.
Today instead of a katana for decoration we would have pictures. Or we would have machine guns and rifles instead of a sword like a katana. For a war prize we would have a beat up gun, or weapon or even the uniform of the opponents Or parts of a wrecked battleship. If people were even allowed to have war prizes today.
