World War II also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945. Although related conflicts began earlier, it involved the vast majority of the world’s nations eventually forming two opposing military alliances; the Allies and the Axis. It was the most widespread war in history involving more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. The major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort erasing the distinction between civilian and military resources.
The Empire of Japan aimed to dominate Asia and the Pacific. Japan was already at war with the Republic of China, but the world war is generally said to have begun on 1 September 1939 with the invasion of Poland by Germany and subsequent declarations of war on Germany by France and the United Kingdom.
