World War II

A timeline of World War II from the Japanese incursion into China through the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Time Line


Japanese invasion of Manchuria

The war began in Europe with the German invasion of Poland on 9/1/1939. Russia, following a non-aggression pact with the Nazis, took the eastern part of Poland soon after.

The Japanese attacked the United States on December 7th, 1941. On December 8th the United States declared war on Japan.

The war in Europe ended in May of 1945. The use of the atmoic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August of 1945 brought the war to its final conclusion. Its impacts are still felt by our society today.

The Battle of Midway in June 1942 gave the advantage to the United States in the Pacific war.

The Battle of Stalingrad would grind the German invasion of Russia to a halt. It was the beginning of the end for the Nazi war machine.

It's vital to remember that World War II was a GLOBAL war. It spanned the whole globe. It can be argued that Japan's brutal invasion of China in 1936 set the stage for the wider war.
