short explanation

When Adolf Hitler, a dictator of Germany, took over Poland Great Britain and france declared war. They didnt start to act until 1940, a year after the declared war. Great Britain and France launched an attack on Denmark and Norway, followed shortly by Belgium and Norway.

Germany then launched an attack on Britain through the air. that was the first military failure of Germany, The Battle of Britain. this allowed France to attack Britain since Adolf Hitler was planning the next attack.

many things happened with Germany and France and Britain but in 1941 Japan launched an attack on Pearl Harbor, a military base in Hawaii. This angered the U.S. and then we joined the fight.

After four more years of fighting, in 1945 the Allied powers won the war.
