World War II at Wikipedia
World War II, or the Second World War (often abbreviated WWII or WW2),
was a global military conflict which involved a majority of the world's nations,
including all of the great powers, organized into two opposing military alliances:
the Allies and the Axis. The war involved the mobilization of over 100 million
military personnel, making it the most widespread war in history. In a state of
"total war", the major participants placed their entire economic,
industrial, and scientific capabilities at the service of the war effort,
erasing the distinction between civilian and military resources. Over seventy
million people, the majority of whom were civilians, were killed, making it
the deadliest conflict in human history.

World War II
The modern world is still living with the consequences of World War 2, the most titanic conflict in history. Just under 69 years ago on September 1st 1939, Germany invaded Poland without warning sparking the start of World War Two. By the evening of September 3rd, Britain and France were at war with Germany and within a week, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and South Africa had also joined the war. The world had been plunged into its second world war in 25 years. Six long and bloody years of total war, fought over many thousand of square kilometres followed. From the Hedgerows of Normandy to the streets of Stalingrad, the icy mountains of Norway to the sweltering deserts of Libya, the insect infested jungles of Burma to the coral reefed islands of the pacific. On land, sea and in the air, Poles fought Germans, Italians fought Americans and Japanese fought Australians in a conflict which was finally settled with the use of nuclear weapons. World War 2 involved every major world power in a war for global domination and at its end, more than 60 million people had lost their lives and most of Europe and large parts of Asia lay in ruins.
