World War II dominated the decade of the 1940's, with a face-off between Axis and Allied powers in Europe, with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbour initially bringing the United States into the War. Big Three leaders Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin meet at the Yalta Conference to discuss post-war reorganisation of Europe. President Harry S. Truman ends World War II when he authorises the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, the only wartime use of nuclear weapons in history. After the War, Nazi leaders are prosecuted in the Nuremburg Trials. American soldiers returning from the war start families and settle into houses in newly developed suburbs. David Ben-Gurion becomes the first President of the new state of Israel, gaining identity following the British Mandate for Palestine. Joe Louis takes back the heavyweight title while Mauri Rose wins the Indianapolis 500. Through and through, the forties was a decade full of people, places, and events that changed the course of human history forever.
