World War II was the most destructive war in history. Over 35 million people were killed, and the property damage ran into the hundreds of billions of dollars. Seventy million men and women served in the armed forces of both sides. Millions more participated as resistance fighters in occupied territories.
World War II was truly global. Fifty-seven nations entered the war. In contrast to World War I, which was primarily fought in Europe, World War II reached into Europe, Asia, Africa, and the islands of the Pacific. World War II was in fact two major wars. The Asian war began in China in 1937, and the European war began in Poland in 1939. With the entry of the United States into the war in 1941, the two wars connected in one worldwide struggle.
The war resulted from aggression by Germany and Italy in Europe and Japan in Asia. Later, as the war grew, the "war effort" became the single purpose of the mightiest countries in the world. Civilians who stayed home and worked in the factories were almost as important as soldiers in battle.
Yet the life of any one individual became insignificant as worldwide suffering and death increased. Families were torn apart. Millions of people were driven from their homes and brutalized. Entire countries were overrun and occupied. The most horrifying crime of the war was the Germans' massacre of 6 million Jews. This crime would haunt the memory of the world that survived.
In retrospect, the war may have been won off the battlefield in the factories and laboratories. The greater industrial and scientific strength of the Allies prevailed. Finally, the war gave birth to the ultimate weapon-the atomic bomb. Use of the bomb against Japan brought the war to an end, and changed the nature of all wars to come. The threat of total destruction now hung over the world.
