Here are some topics you might want to look at:
1.) The passage of the Volstead Act (Prohibition) and its effect of organized crime in the USA. (Boot legging give organized crime big bucks to
expand into other areas.)
2.) The early development of electronic warfare. Electronic warfare began in the night skies of Germany during WW2.
3.) The development of early computers (ENIAC) during WW2.
4.) Early women aviators (1930-1945) other than Amelia Earhart. Many women made significant contributions (such as Hanna Reitsch in Germany) to
aviation. Today we remember Amelia Erahart primarily because she was married to George Putman who owned a chain of newspapers who would give her
coverage in his papers.
5.) Early developments of television (first demostration of TV was on January 23, 1926 given by John Logie Baird).
By the way, in spite of all of his other crimes, Hitler did not screw up the development of the Me 262. That was a little white lie created by
Galland and Speer. If you want I will post the true story. Hitler did a lot of stupid things but he probably right about what he wanted for the Me
262. (Messerschmitt and others lead Hitler to believe that a Jabo version of the Me 262 would be ready for use during the Normandy landings.)
