World War 2, or WW II, was the largest war in modern history that lasted from 1939 to 1945. The conflict spanned across the world and included the majority of the world’s countries that split into two military alliances, the Axis and the Allies. More than 100 million military personnel saw action and major events of the war included the Holocaust, the only use of nuclear weapons in war, and was the deadliest conflict in recorded human history.
World War 2 facts is published to help us remember what occurred during this war as our war veterans fade into memory and is inspired by my late grandfather’s service in the 830th Squadron of the 485th Bomber Group (Heavy) in World War 2.
