WWII

A war that occured from 1939(or 1937) to 1945. Called the Biggest war humanity ever made.


Allies: Britain, America,France, Russia, China , the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Yugoslavia, Greece, Turkey, Nepal, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Brazil , Panama, Nicaragua, Haiti, Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Mexico, Bolivia, Colombia, Peru, Liberia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Syria Chile, Ethiopia

of 49 countries

Axis: Germany, Italy, Japan, France (Vichy), Austria , Czechoslovakia , Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Thailand , Finland , Croatia, Iraq,etc.



Not like the First World War, this one was ... more like a devestating world war.
The reason WWII started.... is also more complicated as well.
Germany was getting it's butt kicked(loser's penalty), the spread of communism, etc.

The main reasons were the Great Depression,the rise of facism, Germany's counterattack and Japan's greed(this case is the Pacific War).

Although Japan and Italy were Allies in WWI, they didn't get what they "deserved" and Germany itself was devestated by communist revolution.
To make things worse for Germany, England and France charged loads and load of money from Germany which blowed up their economy.
Of course, the allies called that "fair" (well to be fair, it was Germany's fault)
But the part that suck more is that at the
Treaty of Versailles, the money was 20 billion marks, however, the bill grew to 132 billion marks by the year 1932. Of course, Germany had absolutely no freaking way to pay back that awful loads of money.

1933, after Hitler became furer, Germany becamed armed and also became again one of the most powerful countries in the world, at the year 1939, the war stated with Germany invading Poland.

And as we know it, everything went to hell.

Thanks to the scale of the war the change of the world was also damn significant.

The Allies and the Axis
began to use weapons that were mass-destructive,

newer tactics were made to change the tide of the battle
.

Colonial
empires collapsed(yup I'm talking about you England),

philosophists became despair to see the inhumanity leaders and countries caused,

East europe and third world countries became infected with communism.

Europe was no longer only the central of the world(no offence, Europeans),

America became the so-called "show me the money" superpower of the world.

So it can be said that WWII is still not finished, even in the 21 century.
