NEW World War II

World War II was a global conflict that split the majority of the world's nations into two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis powers. World War II is deemed to have begun in Europe in 1939 with the German invasion of Poland, resulting in the British and French declarations of war. The complexion of the war was changed completely in 1941 by the German invasion of the USSR in June and the Japanese attack on the USA in December. The Germans over-reached themselves in the USSR. In the Pacific the USA began to wrest back the initiative in mid 1942 and in campaigns steadily drove the Imperial Japanese back. In the west the USA first committed its forces in North-West Africa from November 1943, and then with the British and other allies in Italy from July 1943, and in northern and southern France during June and August 1944. From there the Allies drove back the Germans on the Western Front, securing total victory in May 1945. The USA devastated Japan, contributing to the ending of the war, by dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945.

During World War II the Allies who were a group of countries that cooperated together to oppose the Axis powers, had the mission to stop German, Japanese, and Italian aggression. At the start of the war on September 1, 1939, the Allies consisted of France, Poland, and the United Kingdom, but within a relatively short period, other countries joined the war effort. By the end of 1941, the war had spread to Russia, much of Europe, Africa, and the Mid-East. In December 1941, the US entered the war when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor.

"By the beginning of 1944 air warfare had turned overwhelmingly in favor of the Allies, who wrought destruction on German cities, transport, and industries throughout German-held Europe. This prepared the war for the landing of the Allies in Northern France in June 6, 1944. After heavy fighting in Normandy, Allied armored divisions raced to the Rhine, clearing most of France and Belgium of German forces by October 1944. Hitler's troubles were compounded when Russian Armies swept through from the east, taking much of eastern Europe. By the end of August, the Russians had taken Bucharest, Estonia was taken within months, and Budapest was under siege by the end of the year.
