The Second World War was the bloodiest, most expansive conflict in all of human history. World War 2 affected most everybody on the planet. Empires rose and fell, and upwards of sixty million people lost their lives. Roughly 3% of the world’s population perished during those six horrible years.
World War 2 saw desperation on a planetary scale.

The United States became known as the Arsenal of Democracy, and Allied forces in all combat theaters used American equipment to varying degrees.
