“Nature is cruel, so we may be cruel, too… I have the right to remove millions of an inferior race that breeds like vermin” -Hitler
In Germany Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933 as a fascist dictator. Hitler Hated the Treaty of Versailles and violated it. First he built up the German military. Then he sent troops into the Rhineland. This was a direct violation of the Treaty of Versailles, which said in 1919 that Rhineland was a demilitarized zone.
Hitler wanted to conquer whoever he felt was inferior to the Germans or Aryans. He wanted “living space” for the Germans in Eastern Europe. On September 1, 1939 Germany invaded Poland without a declaration of war. This starts World War II.
Britain and France declared war on Germany on September 3, 1939. Italy declared war on France and Britain on June 10, 1940.
In German blitzkrieg means “lightning war”. Hitler used blitzkrieg during his invasion of Poland. Blitzkrieg included surprise attacks, rapid advances into enemy territory, and massive air attacks that struck and shocked the enemy. Germany achieved most of its victories in World War II with the Blitzkrieg tactic.
“Blitzkrieg: German soldiers being parachuted into Holland - May 10, 1940”
The Maginot Line was a defensive for France against an invasion of Germany. The Maginot Line was established after World War I. The line showed to be little use in 1940 when Germany invaded France for the third time.
In April 1940 the quiet time of the war exploded into action. Hitler launched a series of blitzkrieg. Norway and and Denmark both fell. Germany had overrun the Netherlands and Belgium. Germany along with Italy forced France to surrender.
The event at Dunkirk is called a miracle because the retreating allies had lost hope and then the British pulled through for them and rescued 338,000 men.
On June 22, 1940 France signs an armistice with Germany in occupied France. An armistice is a cease fire or a truce. The Franco-German Armistice divided France into two zones. One zone was under German military occupation and the other was under French control. In 1942 Germans occupied all of France
World War II ended in 1945 World War 2 ended with the unconditional surrender of the Axis powers. Germany surrenders On 8 May 1945, the Allies accepted Germany’s surrender, about a week after Adolf Hitler had committed suicide.

Even though the war was officially at an end in the Far East the war raged on, claiming more lives.
Japan, did not surrender at the same time as Germany. It was able to hold out for another few months. Atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9 respectively. After that the Imperial government sought the Emperor's personal authority to surrender which he granted. He made a personal radio address announcing the decision. V-J Day - Victory in Japan Day.
