The Origins of the Conflict

WWII arose from a mix of factors, including the Treaty of Versailles' aftermath, the rise of totalitarianism, the desire for territorial expansion, and the collapse of the League of Nations' appeasement policies. Key events that set the stage for WWII include:

  • Europe (Germany, Poland, France, and the Soviet Union)
  • North Africa (Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia)

WWI also saw genocides carried out by the Japanese in China, the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, and the Ukrainian Insurgent Army in Eastern Europe.

The End of the War and its Consequences

WWII came to an end with Germany's surrender in May 1945 and Japan's surrender in September 1945. The aftermath of the war included:
