The Empire of Japan aimed to dominate Asia and the Pacific and was already at war with the Republic of China in 1937 but the world war is generally said to have begun on 1 September 1939 with the invasion of Poland by Germany and subsequent declarations of war on Germany by France and the United Kingdom.


World War II was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, though related conflicts began earlier. It involved the vast majority of the world's nations—including all of the great powers—eventually forming two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the worst war in history, and directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries and 11 million people were killed.
