A global conflict lasting from 1939-1945, World War II was the greatest and most destructive war in history. Massive battles took place in Europe, Asia, Africa, and even the far-flung islands of the Pacific. More than 17 million military men of various warring nations perished during the conflict, and approximately 57 million civilians died as war casualties or were murdered in acts of genocide, such as occurred in Nazi death camps.
In the end, WWII had strained the financial resources of major nations so much so, they teetered on the brink of collapse. As the dust settled, these nations began the arduous process of rebuilding and starting anew—the memory of hard-fought battles and lives lost never to be forgotten.
