Beginning in 1939, World War II eventually evolved into a global conflict. The war involved all the great powers of the world and a majority of its nations. The conflict was divided into two opposing sides – the Allies and the Axis. An astonishing number of military personnel were involved in what has been the deadliest and the most widespread war in history.
During this time, most of the countries involved devoted their resources - from economic to scientific –
to the war. World War II also encompassed various home fronts throughout Europe, south-east Asia, China, the Middle East, the Mediterranean, Africa, the Pacific and Atlantic and even North America.
The victory of the Allies in World War II resulted in the disbanding of the Third Reich and the creation of the United Nations.
