World War II in 1939 to 1945

World War II was a global war. The vast majority of nations were involved in it. There were formed two opposing military alliances — the Allies and the Axis. The war involved over 100 million people from more than 30 countries, which made is the most widespread war in history. The participants had to throw their entire industrial, economic, and scientific capabilities for the war effort. The war is known for mass deaths of civilians. During the Holocaust, about 11 million people were killed. There were the strategic bombing of population and industrial centers, leading to the death of about one million people.

The Empire of Japan wanted to dominate the Pacific and Asia and had been already having the war with the Republic of China since 1937. Still, WW2 is considered to begin on 1 September 1939 with the invasion of Poland by Germany. Further, there were declarations of war with the UK and France. From 1939 to 1941 Germany managed to control much of continental Europe. The Axis alliance was formed with Japan and Italy. In August of 1939, Germany and the Soviet Union signed the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact, according to which they partitioned and annexed territories of different European countries, including Finland, Poland, Romania, and the Baltic states. The war continued mostly between the Axis powers and the coalition of the UK and the British Commonwealth, including the East and North Africa campaigns, the Blitz bombing campaign, the aerial Battle of Britain, the Balkan Campaign, and the Battle of the Atlantic.

In June 1941, the Axis powers started an invasion of the Soviet Union. In December 1941, Japan attacked the US and European territories in the Pacific Ocean.

In 1942, the Axis advance halted because Japan lost the Battle of Midway. Germany was defeated in North Africa and then at Stalingrad. In 1943, it also experienced a range of defeats on the Eastern Front and the Allied invasion of Italy. The Axis had to retreat on all fronts.

In 1944, the Western Allies invaded France, while the Soviet Union regained its territories and invaded Germany and its allies. From 1944 to 1945 Japan experienced major reverses in mainland Asia and Burma, while the Allies managed to cripple the Japanese Navy.

The Western Allies and the Soviet Union invaded in Germany and captured Berlin on 8 May 1945. Because of the refusal of Japan to surrender under the terms of the Potsdam Declaration by the Allies, the US dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki on 6 and 9 August.
