World War II (4435 words)
World War II World War II World War II was the most extensive and costly armed conflict in the history of the world, involving the great majority of the world's nations, being fought simultaneously in several major theatres, and costing tens of millions of lives.
Still others cite that World War I and World War II are actually one conflict, and that the peace of the 1920s and early 30s merely served as a "cease fire".
After the war, many high-ranking Germans were prosecuted for war crimes, as well as the mass murder of the Holocaust committed mainly on the area of General Government, in the Nuremberg trials.
