Second World War was the largest world war in history, lasting from 1 September 1939 to 2 September 1945 (in Europe until 8/9 May 1945). The war zone covered most of Europe, east and southeast Asia, northern Africa, parts of the Middle East, and all of the oceans. Several episodes of war even took place in the North Pole and North America. Apart from the majority of European countries and their colonies, the countries of North and South America and Asia took part in it. The main parties to the conflict were the Axis powers and the anti-Hitler (Allies) coalition. 1.7 billion people participated in the war, including 110 million armed people. According to various estimates, from 50 to 78 million people died in it.
World War II ended with: the signing on 7 May 1945 in Reims of the act of unconditional surrender of the Third Reich, with entry into force on 8 May 1945, ending hostilities in Europe, and the act of unconditional surrender of Japan signed on 2 September 1945 aboard the battleship USS “Missouri” in Tokyo Bay, definitively ending World War II hostilities, although individual units, mainly Japanese, continued to fight back on a small scale.
