WW2 - Second World War - 1939-1945 epic footage events
What I present here is a video clip in an epic style summarizing the main historical facts of those years. The Second World War began on 1 September 1939 with the invasion of Poland by Germany, ended in the European theater, May 8, 1945 with the surrender of Germany and in the Asian theater, the next 2 September with the surrender of 'empire of Japan following the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It is considered the largest armed conflict in history, which cost humanity six years of suffering, destruction and massacres and millions of deaths. Civilian populations were found, in fact, directly involved in the conflict because of the use of ever more powerful and destructive, often deliberately directed against non-military targets. During the war was consumed also the tragedy of the Holocaust perpetrated by the Nazis against the Jews, the ethnic Roma and Sinti, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, Poles and other Slavs.
