Introduction to World War II
This introduction to World War II is a series of relatively short articles aimed at introducing WW2 to those who might not be familiar with it. It is broken down into five sections:
- What Was WW2?
- Where Did WW2 Take Place?
- Who Were Involved in WW2?
- When Was WW2?
- Why Did WW2 Take Place?
- Legacies of the War
The goal of this section is to lay out a general overview of WW2 so that the articles on the World War II Database website could be read in better context.
