World War 2 news!!

This is a ship that has been in a bomb and that has been crashed in the war!

 

Of the western European countries opposing Germany, only Britain succeeded in avoiding invasion. By October 1939, British men aged between 20 and 41 were required to register and be ready to be ‘called up’ into the Services.

The war spread across Europe into Africa, the Middle East, the Far East and the Pacific. In 1941, the USA joined the Allied forces after Japan attacked the US naval base at Pearl Harbor on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. The longest battle of the war – the Battle of the Atlantic – lasted for five years, eight months and five days between 1939 and 1945.
