Warld War II, or the Seicont Warld War (aften abbreviatit as WWII or WW2), wis a global war that began in 1939 an endit in 1945. It involved the vast majority o the warld's naitions—includin aw o the great pouers—eventually formin twa opponin military alliances: the Allies an the Axis. It wis the maist widespread war in history, an directly involved mair nor 100 million fowk frae ower 30 kintras. In a state o "tot war", the major participants threw thair entire economic, industrial, an scienteefic capabilities ahind the war effort, erasin the distinction atween ceevilian an militar resoorces. Merked bi mass daiths o ceevilians, includin the Holocaust (during whilk approximately 11 million fowk war killed) an the strategic bombin o industrial an population centres (during whilk approximately ane million fowk war killed, includin the uise o twa nuclear wappens in combat), it resulted in an estimatit 50 million tae 85 million fatalities. Thir made Warld War II the deadliest conflict in human history.The Empire o Japan aimed tae dominate Asie an the Paceefic an wis already at war wi the Republic o Cheenae in 1937, but the warld war is generally said tae hae began on 1 September 1939 wi the invasion o Poland bi Germany an subsequent declarations o war on Germany bi Fraunce an the Unitit Kinrick. Frae late 1939 tae early 1941, in a series o campaigns an treaties, Germany conquered or controlled much o continental Europe, an formed the Axis alliance wi Italy an Japan. Follaein the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact, Germany an the Soviet Union pairteetioned an annexed territories o thair European neighbours, Poland, Finland, Romanie an the Baltic states. The Unitit Kinrick an the Breetish Commonweel war the anly Allied forces continuin the fecht against the European Axis pouers, wi campaigns in North Africae an the Horn o Africae as weel as the lang-runnin Battle o the Atlantic. In Juin 1941, the European Axis pouers launched an invasion o the Soviet Union, openin the lairgest laund theatre o war in history, whilk trapped the major pairt o the Axis' military forces intae a war o attrition. In December 1941, Japan attacked the Unitit States an European territories in the Paceefic Ocean, an quickly conquered much o the Wastren Paceefic.
The Axis advance haltit in 1942 when Japan lost the creetical Battle o Midway, near Hawaii, an Germany wis defeatit in North Africae an then, decisively, at Stalingrad in the Soviet Union. In 1943, wi a series o German defeats on the Eastren Front, the Allied invasion o Italy whilk brocht aboot Italian surrender, an Allied victories in the Paceefic, the Axis lost the initiative an undertook strategic retreat on aw fronts. In 1944, the Wastren Allies invaded German-occupied Fraunce, whilst the Soviet Union regained aw o its territorial losses an invadit Germany an its allies. During 1944 an 1945 the Japanese suffered major reverses in mainland Asie in Sooth Central Cheenae an Burma, whilst the Allies crippled the Japanese Navy an capturt key Wastren Paceefic islands.
The war in Europe endit wi an invasion o Germany bi the Wastren Allies an the Soviet Union culminatin in the captur o Berlin bi Soviet an Pols truips an the subsequent German uncondeetional surrender on 8 Mey 1945. Follaein the Potsdam Declaration bi the Allies on 26 Julie 1945 an the refusal o Japan tae surrender unner its terms, the Unitit States dropped atomic bombs on the Japanese ceeties o Hiroshima an Nagasaki on 6 August an 9 August respectively. Wi an invasion o the Japanese airchipelago imminent, the possibility o addeetional atomic bombins, an the Soviet Union's declaration o war on Japan an invasion o Manchuria, Japan surrendered on 15 August 1945. Sicweys endit the war in Asie, cementin the tot victory o the Allies.
Warld War II altered the poleetical alignment an social structur o the warld. The Unitit Naitions (UN) wis established tae foster internaitional co-operation an prevent future conflicts. The victorious great powers—the Unitit States, the Soviet Union, Cheenae, the Unitit Kinrick, an Fraunce—became the permanent members o the Unitit Naotions Security Cooncil. The Soviet Union an the Unitit States emerged as rival superpouers, settin the stage for the Cauld War, whilk lastit for the next 46 years. Meanwhile, the influence o European great pouers waned, whilst the decolonisation o Asie an Africae began. Maist kintras whose industries haed been damaged moved towards economic recovery. Poleetical integration, especially in Europe, emerged as an effort tae end pre-war enmities an tae creaut a common identity.Willie Mathieson
