 World War II
World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a war fought from 1939 to 1945 in Europe and, during much of the 1930s and 1940s, in Asia.
The war was also fought in Africa, and included a handful of incidents in the Americas along with several naval battles in the world's various oceans.
It was the largest armed conflict in history, spanning the entire world and involving more countries than any previous war, as well as introducing powerful new weapons, culminating in the first use of atomic bombs, whose very existence had been a tightly-held secret.
