The World Crisis
The Most Terrifying World War
WWII lasted from 1939 to 1945. There were two sides in the war. They were Allies & Axises. The Axises wanted to rule the world. Some Axises were Japan, Italy & Nazi, Germany. Some of the Allies were U.S.A & Britain. We got involved in the war by Japanese bombing Pearl Harbor. After that they became our arch enemy. In 1945 Japan surrendered on the deck of U.S. battleship, USS Missouri.
