Think you know your WW II trivia? Lasting for 6 years, involving more than 100 million military personnel from more than 30 countries and resulting in 70-85 million fatalities, WW II was the deadliest conflict in human history. The Second World War spanned the scope from the frozen tundra of Russia, to the open battlefields of Central Europe and even to the islands of the Pacific.

The war impacted the daily lives of everyone from ordinary citizens to soldiers and led to startling technological changes including the development of the atomic bomb and radar.
