Inscription.

S. Military was attacked by the Japanese at Pearl Harbor in 1941. U.S. Military forces sw action in Asia, the Pacific, Europe, and North Africa. This was the largest and most expensive war ever. Germany surrendered in May of 1945 and the Japanese surrendered in September 1945 after the atomic bombs were dropped on Japan to avoid additional loss of life which an invasion of the 4 main islands of Japan would have caused. The political instability caused by the war forced the United States to end its isolationist policy and take an active role in the world during peace time.
