In September 1939, Hitler's Nazi Germany invaded Poland.
Thus began the greatest armed struggle in history. Within days of the invasion, Germany was at war with France, Great Britain and much of the Commonwealth, but by the end of 1941 - by which time Japan and the United States had been plunged into war - the conflict had engulfed virtually the entire planet. The World War II Story charts the dramatic narrative of the conflict from its first shots to its final apocalyptic end.
