  Encyclopedia: World War II
World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a mid-twentieth-century conflict that engulfed much of the globe and is generally considered the most costly and intense war in human history.
Post–World War II Europe was partitioned into Western and Soviet spheres of influence, the former undergoing economic reconstruction under the Marshall Plan and the latter becoming satellite states of the Soviet Union.
The causes of World War II are a debated subject, mainstream views tie them to the nationalist and expansionist tendencies of Nazi Germany and the Empire of Japan: Expansionism is the doctrine of expanding the territory or economic influence of a country.

 Military history of Italy during World War II - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yet, despite Mussolini's description of the German-Italian alliance as an "Axis of Blood and Steel", his response to the German invasion was to declare that Italy was neutral and a "non-belligerent".
However, on June 10, 1940, as Rommel reached the English Channel, Mussolini felt the war was coming to an end and declared war on Britain and France.
Within a week of Italy's declaration of war, the British 11th Hussars had seized Fort Capuzzo and, in an ambush east of Bardia, the Tenth Army's Engineer in Chief, General Lastucci, was captured.

 Carl K. Savich Tetovo and Greater Albania - November, 2001
During the latter half of the 19th century, Ottoman Turkey was referred to as “the sick man of Europe” because it could not maintain its occupation and colonies in the Balkans and Eastern Europe.
The goal and agenda of the ethnic Albanian Skanderbeg Waffen SS Division was to advance the Greater Albania ideology by deporting and killing the non-Albanian populations of Western Macedonia.
During the war some sent their sons to Serbia to prevent their mobilization into the KLA.” The BHHRG further alleged that “the regional weapons market is run from Tetovo.” Menduh Thaci of the DPA is alleged to control Tetovo’s shops and the fl market, such as in oil.

 STALINISM -- BEFORE AND DURING WORLD WAR II   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Between World War I and World War II the protracted equilibrium which had tolerated a Soviet Union in a capitalist world had begun also to engender illusions that the soviets could coexist peacefully for an indefinite period with the rest of the world.
During World War I the opportunist socialists had banged their heads in vain against the wall of that problem, each nationalist socialist group maintaining that it was "their" country that was being attacked.
During this period, after the death of Lenin, the line of the Comintern was clearly stated by Bukharin in 1926: "When Germany, defeated and subjugated, reduced to the status of a semi-colonial country, resisted the imperialism of the victorious Entente, in manifestos, declarations, etc., the supreme bodies of the Soviet power publicly declared their sympathy.

 Belarusian Anti-Communism: Nazi and CIA connection.
During the first half of the XX century Belarus has found itself squeezed between two most horrible rising superpowers that had yet to shock the mankind with an animal cruelty of their ideologically brainwashed soldiers - Stalin's Soviet Union and Hitler's III Reich.
It has produced horrible war criminals who have conducted mass murders of their own population, betrayed their culture and ended drowning their ideals in the blood of their victims.
On August 7, 1948, during the debate on the DP bill, Congressman Arthur Klein of New York cited Stanislau Stankievich as an example of the war criminals hiding in refugee camps who should never be permitted in the US.

 Chapter 3: The Legacy of World War II
During this period he had to deal with the problems of insurgency and counterinsurgency, and of civil war, in addition to the guerrilla operations against the enemy forces of occupation.
The official American approach during the war was to turn a blind eye to elite collaboration and to ban attacks by American-registered guerrillas on those in the puppet government.
During and after the occupation they provided both a ready instrument to enforce the political and economic prerogatives of the rural elites and a very real incentive for the peasants to organize themselves in self-defense.

 European Royalty during World War II
If federalization is to be a constructive element in the future development of Europe and not merely a disguised method for keeping Germany as disunited as possible, the historical development of the country should not be overlooked and sacrificed to arbitrary measures conceived as a result of momentary emergencies and tendencies.
The war years were obviously significant in the history of the Balkan, Italian, and Hungarian monarchies -- since in the aftermath of the war all were toppled as a result of communist agitation (with the lone exception of Greece, where the monarchy only just barely survived the communist onslaught).
The role of Europe's royal houses in the history of World War II is therefore important and, at the same time, often underestimated -- as is the role of World War II in the history of Europe's royal houses.
