WW2 Main Events Ww2 began in 1939. The war began as Adolf Hitler got his German troops to invade Poland, this resulted in Britain and France declaring war on Germany. Although the Allies declared war on Germany little action was taken over the following months and Hitler took advantage and conquered Denmark, Norway, Belgium, The Netherlands and France
WW2 Main Events (2) Later in the summer of 1940 Germany launched an air attack on Britain this was known as ‘The Battle of Britain’ but this wasn’t to be Germanys victory as the German Luftwaffe was no match for the British Royal Air Force. Later in 1941 Germany took a bold action by invading Russia and although the Germans progressed at the start it wasn’t to be their victory yet again as the harsh winter conditions proved to be too much for the unprepared Germans. In 1944 the Germans were eventually forced out of Russia
The Ending of WW2 In 1944 the British and the Americans launched a D-Day invasion to force the Germans out of France. In 1945 the Allies were closing in on Germany itself, and Hitler committed suicide as a result. Germany then surrendered in May of 1945 as the Allies won. The total death rate in Germany from the war was around 7,060,000 people.
