WW2, an Extensive Collection of Information
WW2 Information: Here, you can find out a lot more
about World War 2. This page features comprehensive data, facts and
information about WW2, as does the rest of this website. Here,
you can find out what really happened in the second world war. The
beginning and the end of WW2 is secentifically controversal,
since it results in two “periods”.
WW2: Beginning in Asia
Some historians claim that World War 2 actually began
in the Far East. On 7th July 1939, Japanese and Chinese troops met each
other at the Marco Polo Bridge which is located on the outskirts of
Beijing. Using this batte as a reference point, one can say that the
Second World War actually began in Asia, with the climate of war
spreading West to the great powers of Europe.
World War 2: Beginning in Europe
The German attack on Poland in the early hours of 1st
May 1939 can also be considered the beginning of WW2. In this
case, the Second World War began in Europe, not Asia (WW2
The end of World War 2 can be considered as the 8th
or 9th of May 1945. The reason for this is that Germany signed for
unconditional surrender in Berlin; due to some delays, the treaty was
not signed until midnight; or, more precisely, 00.01am on the 9th.
Whether or not this is important will not be discussed here (WW2
Another end date for WW2 is 2nd September
1945, when the Japanese surrendered to the Americans about the U.S.S.
Missouri. This can be considered the last 'act' of the second world war.
Thus, WW2 lasted for 5 1/2 years.
Viewed from different angles, it's easy to vary just
how long WW2 really was. The following periods are therefore
subject to the above assumptions within this debate.
a) WW2 period: from 7th July 1937 to 2nd September
1945 (assuming the beginning-end takes place in Asia)
b) WW2 period: from 1st September to 8th/9th May 1945
(assuming the beginning-end takes place in Europe)
