With Adolf Hitler at the helm and Nazism established as a political force in Germany, this country invaded Poland on September 1, 1939, starting the already latent World War II. Previously, Germany had signed the Non-Aggression Pact with the Soviet Union, thus assuring the beginning of the territorial advance in all Europe.

Breaking the alliance, Germany decided to invade the Soviet Union in 1941, in a battle that was eventually unsuccessful, but which escalated the war to a maximum level. Among the most relevant events of this period are: the consolidation of the Holocaust, with millions of Jews deported, murdered and imprisoned in extermination camps; the Attack on Pearl Harbor; the occupation of the Low Countries, as well as those of Eastern and Western Europe by Nazi Germany; the atomic bombs dropped by the United States on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Just to mention a few.

The extermination and destruction of humanity’s cultural heritage are still incalculable. Undoubtedly, a regrettable event for world history that you have to know by taking a look at our more than 25 books on World War II in PDF format, which you can access right now.
