  World War II - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
World War II or the Second World War was a global conflict that began on 7 July 1937 in Asia, and on 1 September 1939 in Europe.
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 end of the war is also seen by many as the end of Britain's position as a global superpower and the emergence of the United States and the Soviet Union as the dominant powers in the world.
