    seeking support was quite easy. After the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, Americans were outraged that the Japaneses would and attack us. Not only that but Hitler's plans in Europe did not go down well with Americans. The discovery of the Concentration camps helped to spur us on.

    In the beginning the USA were Isolationists, FDR wanted nothing to do with the war after the casualties of the Great War, Even before Pearl Harbour Americans were flying RAF planes over France and England, The Japanese sneak attack and Hitler declaring war on the USA the next day meant that the USA had no option but to get involved more than they already were. Democrats are full of praise for FDR yet what the American public do not realise is that FDR almost put the USA at the mercy of the Soviet Union after being duped by Stalin time after time.

    A recommended program to watch is World War - Behind Closed Doors, this 6 hour program covers all FDR's and Churchill's dealings with Stalin in a reenactment of recently released top secret documents, it is an eye opener to say the least.

    The series uses dramatic reconstructions, based on extensive fresh research in Russian and Western archives, and extraordinary testimony from witnesses of the time, including former Soviet secret policemen who have not spoken before on camera, in order to tell a 'behind closed doors' history.

    America's extraordinary economic and military superiority, which only grew as the war progressed, was leverage that Roosevelt utterly failed to use, or even understand, as he clung desperately to the dream of the Soviet Union as a postwar partner. It was a vision that was wrong from the outset, based on an unworkable premise that poisoned any number of political-military decisions throughout the war.

    The Concentration camps were only discovered in 1945 and most were in Poland (Birkenau, Dachau and Auschwitz)

    If you mean how the government won support from the American people, they didn't have to. Support was there after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor destroying most of our navy fleet and Germany declared war on America, I believe, the next day. If you mean how did the US seek to win support for WWII from other countries, they were probably glad to see us come in because they were already into WWII and needed our help.

    People were in an uproar after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Before that we were neutral.
