Get ready to jump in the time machine and travel way back to learn about the World War 2 (1939-1945). Get ready to learn about one of what is suggested to be the bloodiest, most destructive and longest wars in history!
Why did it begin?
Prepare to learn about how Nazi Germany caused global conflict by attacking parts of Europe, which then spread to other areas such as China, Japan and the Soviet Union. It was at 04:45 on the 1st September 1939 that the war is suggested to have officially started, when Germany invaded Poland and refused to remove their troops.
Who was their ruler?
