How did World War 2 affect sports and pro athletes?

Most college and professional athletes were in the service. The NFL was nowhere near the big thing it is today, and the major professional sport was Major League Baseball. (The NBA did not start until three years after the war was over). Seasons were not canceled, because it was thought the continuation of "normal" activity to the extent possible would be good for civilian morale. So a lot of guys who were not physically fit to be in the military were playing major league ball, and the quality of play was vastly lower. There was a one-armed pitcher (nowhere near as good as Jim Abbott, who also pitched with one arm about twenty years ago), and the Chicago Cubs put a midget in the lineup, more as a gimmick. He got walked a lot because of his small strike zone. Some athletes persisted until they got combat assignments in the service. Ted Williams may have been the greatest hitter ever in baseball, but he missed all or part of six seasons flying fighter planes for the Marine Corps (he was called back for Korea). Otherwise he would have broken Babe Ruth's career home run record fifty years ago, even playing his entire career in Boston, as a left hander, where he had to fight the Green Monster in half the games every season. Boxers Joe Louis and Gene Tunney were in uniform. Their duties were a lot like many athletes. They toured bases, gave exhibitions, helped with morale. The service teams of the war years were fantastic, loaded with great college and pro talent. There was a guy from my town who graduated in 1942 and was immediately drafted into the Navy. This guy was the star of probably the best high school football team in the southeast. In the fall of 1941 they outscored their opponents 487-7 for the season. His name was "Choo Choo" Charlie Justice, and he was runner-up for the Heisman Trophy in 1948 and 1949, and played pro ball for the Redskins. But in 1942 few outside the area had ever heard of him. He was sent to the Great Lakes Naval Training Camp, which had a football team. He went out for the team. He was a little guy, only about 165 pounds, dwarfed by the college and pro players on the squad. The first day, the trainer would not even give him any football shoes. He went on the field barefoot, got hold of a ball, and punted it seventy yards. The next day, he got shoes. After the war he went to UNC, where his coach was the former coach of that Navy team, and his teammates were grown men, former service players. Every big college across the land was similarly loaded. The 1942 Rose Bowl was between USC and Duke. It was played less than a month after Pearl Harbor. There was still widespread fear the Japanese might attack the West Coast, so the game was played in Durham, NC, the only time the Rose Bowl has not been played in Pasadena. The Army football team, the college team from West Point, was National Champions in 1944 and 1945, with the great duo of running backs, Doc Blanchard and Glen Davis. They havent been so hot since, but those were good teams.

Was there English football during world war 2?

The 1939-1940 season was the 65th season of competitive football in England. In September 1939, shortly after World War II was declared, most football competitions were abandoned as the country's attention turned to the war effort. Regional league competitions were set up instead; appearances in these tournaments do not count in players' official records. A few leagues, such as the Northern League, did manage to complete a season, but more than half of the teams were unable to fulfil all their fixtures and resigned. Many footballers signed up to fight in the war and as a result many teams were depleted, and fielded guest players instead - Crystal Palace fielded 186 different players during the seven wartime seasons.[1] The FA Cup was resumed for the 1945-46 season and The Football League for the 1946-47 seasonGermanyThe 1939-40 season started in August 1939, but with the outbreak of the Second World War shortly after, league football was suspended. It only resumed at the end of October, with a number of local city-championships having been played to bridge the gap.[2] As the war progressed, top-division football became more regionalised. It also expanded into occupied territories, some of them annexed into Greater Germany, increasing the number of tier-one Gauligas considerably from the original 16 in 1933. The last German championship was played in 1944 and won by Dresdner SC, but the last official league game was played as late as 23 April 1945, being the FC Bayern Munich versus TSV 1860 Munich derby in the Gauliga Oberbayern, ending 3-2.[3] The final years of league football saw the rise of military teams, like LSV Hamburg, who reached the 1944 German championship final, since most top-players were drafted into the German armed forces and ended up playing for these sides. Representative teams like the Rote Jäger also had a number of German internationals playing for them.[4]With the end of the war, ethnic German football clubs in the parts of Germany that were awarded to Poland and the Soviet Union disappeared. Clubs like VfB Königsberg and Vorwärts-Rasensport Gleiwitz, who had successfully competed in the German championship on quite a number of occasions[5] disappeared for good. In Czechoslovakia, where the ethnic German minority in the Sudetenlandwas forced to leave the country, clubs experienced the same fate. A few, like BSK Neugablonz,[6] where reformed by these refugees in West Germany.Some of the events of the war continue to affect German football today. Within the first couple of weeks of the re-development of the Mercedes-Benz Arena in 2009, home of the VfB Stuttgart, 18 undetonated bombs left over from air raids on Stuttgart during the Second World War were found on the construction site. The stadium was originally built, like so many others in Germany, on rubble left over from the war.[7]

What was the name of the war plan for the Pacific War that had been developed and refined at the Naval War College?

War Plan Orange. The Orange plan was one of a number of war plans, collectively referred to as the Rainbow War Plans, developed to deal with a number of war scenarios in different parts of the world. These plans were written by the Joint Army-Navy Planning Board and not by the U.S. Naval War College. However, it is probable that many of the Navy writers incorporated ideas that they had learned while studying at the Naval War College. The annual Fleet Exercises were also important to developing the strategies incorporated into the Navy portions of War Plan Orange.
