The world war 2 started at 1939 and ended 1945. It started when Germany invaded Czechoslovakia and then Poland. Because of the invasion of Poland Britain declared war on Germany. This resulted in Germany bombing England and causing a lot of damage, not only did it bomb the Ports but after a while they bombed the houses that caused a lot of damage and mess. Lots of people were killed in world war 2 and then England started bombing Germany and did the same damage there. Lots of ships where bringing food from America to England and these were destroyed by U boats. After the Japan bombed the ships in Pearl Harbour America then came into the war and helped Britain. Lots of American troops came to this country and helped us. When D-Day came in 1944 all the troops went across the sea to France and that was the beginning of the end of the world war 2. In world war 2 all the Germans bombed all our factories so we couldn't get any weapons, they also bombed all our docks, these people where called the blitz. Hitler (the German prime minister) talked to Winston Churchill (the England prime minister) had a talk together and they said if Hitler took over Poland again England will help Poland, and if we take over Poland you will help them. Soon after that day Hitler took over Poland very cruelly so England helped Poland. For England world war 2 went on for 6 years. Is that long or what? They started 1939 and ended 1945, at 1945 they had a party to celebrate for England's hard work and for the second world war finished. They where very happy that world war 2 was over because now no one will get hurt. World war 2 was called that because most of the world took place in world war 2. The people on England's team where called the allies and the people against them where called the axis and the people who didn't take part where called the neutrals.
