DICTATOR

The dictator of Germany was none other than Adolf Hitler. Prime Minister or President are elected by the fellow citizens. But dictators just go on in and take over countries. They force in and take total control of the country and everyone in it.

THE BLITZ...

The Blitz was when Hitler decided to try and take over Britain. He was blowing up Britain's ships, air crafts, radar stations and more. So Britain had to fight back and flew their airplanes to try and stop them. This got Hitler angry and he started blowing up civilians mostly in London. So they had to make bombing shelters underground to protect themselves

HOW DID IT END??

As the allies were kicking but out there in the war, Hitler gets really angry. So he decides to commit suicide. Germany and its other friends then fall apart and get surrounded by U.S allies. Outnumbered they surrendered and that ended that. Now Japan wouldn't give up, so we took atomic bombs and dropped them over on islands and cities in Japan. Finally, they also surrendered.
