"Europe - Liberty's Victorious Conflict"Following World War I, the United States remained isolated from world affairs as economic and political factors led to the rise of nationalistic powers in the Soviet Union, Germany, Italy, and Japan. A series of bold moves by Germany and weak countermoves by Allied leaders triggered World War II in Europe when Germany invaded Poland in September 1939. Hoping to remain insulated, the United States provided aid to nations resisting the Axis Powers, but was drawn into the war when Japan launched her surprise attack on America's Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. President Roosevelt proclaimed "...December 7, 1941 a day that will live in infamy...". On December 8 Congress declared war on Japan. Germany and Italy declared war on the United States three days later.
