Brief World War 2 Discussion

World War 2 was indeed a “world war.” The majority of the world’s nations were involved in the war, and they were organized into two opposing military alliances: The Allied and Axis powers. There were more than 100 million military personnel involved in the war.

Perhaps the most notorious aspect of the war, the significant acts against civilians such as the Holocaust and the only use of a nuclear bomb in warfare to date made World War 2 the deadliest war in human history, exceeding 70 million casualties.
