Positive effects of World War 2


We all know about the evil side of the WW2 but what about the good sides.

Was there a positive thing in the years of WW2 or countries to call them the good sides?

Are there any positive effects of World War II for our human future?

The nazy wanted the next future of germans to have good gens..is there any good small logic in this idea?

What were the good parts of nazy political decisions in their own country?

The jews suffered 6 million deaths but also now they have their own country and can defend them self.

I want to say i truly hate what in "evil way" happened then but just want to point the good aspects of what happened in that time and the influence over our future history because we can learn from mistakes and take what was good.

60 years of war movies

We would had have all of this without ww2 but latter ..and a world war 2 latter with a atomic bomb invented and not used..The deaths would have been much worst with ww2 happening some latter in time?

But for sure the ww2 give us a big lift in technology

"medical science" so the Nazy crimes and study over humans have a good part except the evil one?

I'm talking about the other side.

The Nazis went for public schemes like the decompression tests.

The British went for quieter stuff like the enhanced development of antibiotics, blood transfusions, burn treatments and other products that meant an injured soldier could be saved and returned to the front line.

That especially includes Sir Archibald McIndoe and his guinea pig club who pioneered facial and body reconstructive surgery.

Things that are utterly normal today but were revolutionary back then.

Yes is truth the 60 million deaths lower the population and tempered the future overpopulation. It is a good aspect born from a evil one... but i believe we can solve this problem in future, we have the technology to do that.

For all the role of science, mathematics, and new inventions in earlier wars, no war had as profound an effect on the technologies of our current lives than World War II And no war was as profoundly affected by science, math, and technology than WWII

World War 2 is the kind of event that nobody can condone and the struggle for political power and territory at that time brought millions of innocent lives to an abrupt end. However, in the struggle for dominance, both sides were forced to develop new technology that would allow them to outsmart, outplay and outgun their adversaries. As a result, the WW2 period was extremely lucrative in terms of inventions, some of which you still utilize today


Penicillin

Jerrycans
If you own a car, then you probably have a few motor oil and gasoline cans in your garage/trunk. However, the cans you utilize to transport fuel did not always look like that. In fact, before the Germans perfected the design by strengthening the structure with the cross shape, maximizing the contents of the can and adding the innovative handles that permitted soldiers to carry 2 of them in each hand, fuel containers used to be impractical and rudimentary. Of course, the design was quickly reverse engineered by the allies.

The pressurized cabin
You have the US to thank for this invention that practically revolutionized air transportation. It is necessary to point out that in the absence of similar pressure/temperature/oxygen condition, the pilot of the aircraft would not be able to fly at high altitudes. However, the solution utilized prior to pressurize cabins comprised of giving the pilot an oxygen mask, which needless to say, failed numerous times.

Radio navigation
Before the invention of the Gee-H, Oboe and GEE neither of the forces was able to accurately direct the aircrafts in effective blind bombing runs. In addition, although flying these huge bombing ships was always incredibly difficult, landing them safely was even harder. The successor of the original GEE, LORAN was used for commercial aircraft navigation until not long ago when the GPS took over. However, there are voices that suggest LORAN should be reintroduced on commercial and military aircraft as a failsafe for potential GPS failures.

Radar
Synthetic rubber and synthetic oil
Nuclear power
The original computer
Two coding and decoding machines stand at the foundation of the modern day computer, namely the Enigma and the Lorentz machines. The role of these gadgets was to encode and respectively decode the traffic, which comprised mainly of communications between the German high command and the air, ground and naval forces dispatched. It is necessary to point out that while Enigma was based on a brilliant encryption system, there are more similarities between the Lorentz machines and computers nowadays.

....etc

Don't even get me started on how stupid an idea the jerrycan was. Another wonderful example of Germans losing a fight through technical excellence

Fascism self-destructed.

That's all I've got.
