world war 2

Post  JeremyM on Thu Oct 06, 2011 1:57 pm

The modern world is still living with the consequences of World War 2, the most titanic conflict in history. 70 years ago on September 1st 1939, Germany invaded Poland without warning sparking the start of World War Two. By the evening of September 3rd, Britain and France were at war with Germany and within a week, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and South Africa had also joined the war. The world had been plunged into its second world war in 25 years. Six long and bloody years of total war, fought over many thousand of square kilometres followed. From the Hedgerows of Normandy to the streets of Stalingrad, the icy mountains of Norway to the sweltering deserts of Libya, the insect infested jungles of Burma to the coral reefed islands of the pacific. On land, sea and in the air, Poles fought Germans, Italians fought Americans and Japanese fought Australians in a conflict which was finally settled with the use of nuclear weapons. World War 2 involved every major world power in a war for global domination and at its end, more than 60 million people had lost their lives and most of Europe and large parts of Asia lay in ruins.

Looks like someone was playing Call of Duty world at War. The second world war was extremely brutal 25% of the American army was killed in that war. Russians played a big part as well in the war at first they were on the Nazi's side until they were betrayed, then the Russians took Berlin and planted their flag atop their capitol building. This obviously took many years to achieve, and in the end you can't tell weather the Russians were the "good guys" or the "bad guys". What do you guys think?

Nice, did you know that Hitler was the reason that WWII happened??? Nice topic, but you could have done it yourself without copy and pasting. Would have been better....

I did'nt know the war took the lives of one fourth of the american army. I guess America did have help from neihboring nations. Great britain stood with america for the majority of battles, which is strange because not to far back America and Great Britain fought in the civil war. It was definitely a reuniting move, old enemies came together to bring down something bigger then old grudges
