Life during the Great Depression

The latter part of the 20th century is said to be one of the most abhorrent and cruel parts of modern history. With World War – I taking its course in the early 1910s and hinting at the decade of the Great Depression during 1929-1939, the negative repercussions on mankind were immense. Reeling and resurging from the financial crackdown, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor crafted the onset of World War – 2 which further had negatory consequences. World War – 2 technically may have ended in 1945 but it fueled the Cold War of 1947 wherein, there was no large-scale fighting between the two superpowers but it involved major regional conflicts which then led to the active participation of the two superpowers in proxy wars.
