Also known as the Second World War, WWII was a global war between the Axis and Allied powers that lasted from 1939 until 1945. Prior to its official declaration in 1939, growing tensions in parts of Europe and Asia following WWI - the Treaty of Versailles, the Great Depression and rise of militarism were said to be the deadly combination that led to WWII. Part I of the Second World War Course tackles the causes of WWII.
The main belligerents in WWII were the Axis and Allied powers. Compared to WWI, battles during the Second World War covered both European and Pacific theatres. The official outbreak of war between Germany and the Allies (Great Britain and France) began with the Nazi invasion of Poland. With continuous aggression from the other Axis members - Italy and Japan - the war expanded into the Mediterranean and Pacific.
The Second World War was a massive conflict between the Allied and Axis powers. Battles were fought in various locations, including the main theatres of Europe and the Pacific. As a result of this dispersed battleground, the war did not end at the same time in each location. WWII is also regarded as one of the deadliest wars in history, with 70-80 million casualties. To replace the League of Nations, the United Nations was created after the war.
Over the three lessons in the course, you'll learn about the causes of the Second World War, significant figures and battles & end and impacts of the War.
