During This Week In 1939 Germany Invaded Poland

World War II was a global conflict that resulted in more deaths than any other war. It involved the vast majority of the world’s nations—including all of the great powers—eventually forming two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis.


It was the most widespread war in history, with more than 100 million people, from more than 30 different countries.
