This image represent when the U.S first enter war world 2, it shows that the U.S (David) mainly was the only one who really fought against Axis Powers (U.S.S.R, Germany & Japan). Reason for why the Allied Powers (U.S, Italy, France,Great B.) are the rocks is because we use them as weapons, we use their millitary, their supplies, we use their base. On the bottom of the image it says ” Just wait until the little feller grows up” it means that when the U.S (david) enter the war our millitary industery was weaken by the Great Depression as well with our belief in isolation. So the war helped us become a military industrial powers (grows up) so then we ended up beating the Axis Powers(Goliath) and win war world 2 in 1945.

    I think is a great comparison that you make David and Goliath with the United States and Axis. Us defeat Axis even though Us did not have a lot of help because the other countries were tired to fight against Axis.

    Who was more successful in World War II BEFORE the USA entered the war? Why did the AXIS powers have much of the early victories in WWII and how did America “GROW UP” because of World War II?

    I think this is a great political cartoon. I find the metaphor about the other allied powers being the stones to David’s slingshot genius.

    i love the metaphor used in this political cartoon. the allies are this small underestimated child but in reality they defeated goliath (the axis powers) even though it seemed they were the favorite to win

    i dont think its true that we used their military and supplies, because we werent involved until 1942 but we were leasing weapons and supplies to the allies, the u.s was not using G.B, Italy and France’s army. it was done through the lend lease act. but i liked your comparison between david and the goliath with the united states and the axis powers
