World War 2 Timeline

In September 1931, Japan invaded Manchuria under false pretexts and captured it from China.

In 1933, Adolf Hitler became the leader of Germany, and under Nazi power, Germany began to rearm and pursue new foreign policy by demanding the cession territories which were historically a part of Germany.

In July 1937, Japan invaded the mainland of China, and bombed Shanghai and Guangzhou.

In Europe, Germany and Italy, began a hostile and aggressive fight over foreign policies, to which the United Kingdom and France attempted to solve diplomatically with appeasement.

In September 1939, Germany invaded Poland in cooperation with the Soviet Union, causing the war in Europe to follow. Although, the French and British hoped to appease Hitler, they did not declare war at first, but when Hitler failed to respond, they declared war. But, throughout the winter of '39 and '40, no one was willing to engage the other; this period is now known as the Phoney War.

In the spring of 1940, Germany captured Denmark and Norway.

In the summer of 1940, Germany captured France and the Low Countries.

In June 1940, Italy declared war, and the Italian Army attacked France.

In 1940, Japan invaded French Indochina, and the United States, Great Britain, and the Netherlands put economic sanctions on the country

In June 1941, Germany invaded the Soviet Union, which brought the Soviet Union into alliance with the United Kingdom.

In December 1941, launched simultaneous attacks against the United States at Pearl Harbor and British assets in Southeast Asia. Four days later, Germany declared war on the United States.

In 1942, Japan suffered its first major defeat against U.S. forces in the Battle of Midway. German forces in Africa were being pushed back by Anglo-American forces, and Germany's offense in the Soviet Union had ceased.

In 1943, Germany suffered great losses at Stallingrad and Kursk. They were expelled from Africa, while their Allied forces were driven northward through Sicily and Italy.

In September 1943, Italy signed the Italian Armistice.

In 1944, German troops were forced out of Russia and were pushed into Poland and Romania. The Western Allies invaded Europe's mainland, liberating France and the Low Countries, while reaching Germany's western borders. At the same time, while Japan launched a successful offensive in China, in the Pacific, their navy suffered great losses as American forces captured airfields within bombing range of Tokyo.

In 1945, the war ended when the Soviet Union invaded Manchuria and the United States dropped atomic bombs on Japanese mainland. Leaving the Soviet Union and the United States as the world's two leading superpowers

Europe was informally split into Western and Soviet spheres of influence.

In 1945, the allied nations, formed the United Nations in order to minimize future conflicts.

In 1952, a peace treaty was signed between Japan and the United States.

And, after the war China's international status was enhanced as they no longer had Imperial Japan interfering.

      WKoppin 7 years ago from Michigan

      Glaring weakpoint if were going for a complete list here (unless I missed something. No Mp43/44 (or Stg44) important automactic rifle on the road to the modern be-all assualt rifle, which in all honsety your could say that it was. I understand you could mean by "commonly used" but the Mp44 was assigned in large numbers to several units, and indded one could argue that it's inevitable capture in copious amounts by the Russians may have led to the development of the Ak-47. Otherwise the Germans are also missing the other two automatic rifles used, The Gewher 41, and 43, as well as the FG42 Fallsichjeager (German Paratrooper) assault rifle. That last one is dissmisable as it's comparataively few numbers would fall out of "common." The number of weaons under the Jappanese "Machineguns" is appreciable subtantial, considering that sometiems people seem to assume they just screamed Banzi and ran at you with a sword.

      During World War 2 (Sept 1 1939- Sept 2 1945), Britain, Soviet Union and Nazi Germany all used a bolt- action rifle as their standatd issue weapon. All except the U.S. which used the M1 Garand as their standard issued rifle which is a semi- automatic rifle . The U.S. army during WW2 used the M1 Garand semi- auto which was very affective and accurate with a 30- 06 cartridge and 8 round clip. When you fired the 8th round of the M1 it made a ''Pinging'' sound which was the clip firing out of the rifle hitting the ground. The British during the second world war used the Lee- enfield Number 4 Mark 1 bolt- action rifle , which was said to be the most accurate rifle of the War. It was used during The 'Great' war, and as it was so great, the British used it again during World war 2. The rifle had 10 rounds in a clip which was the highest amount of rounds in a clip during the war more than any other country. The Red army during the second world war used the 5 round Mosin Nagant which was effective in accuracy especially when it was with a Scope for Snipers. The weapon was commonly used during the siege of Stalingrad against German forces. The Germans during the war used as their standard issued weapon, the Karabiner 98k. This weapon was a tactical, powerful rifle for the Axis powers of nazi Germany. It had 5 rounds in a clip and was said to be a reliable and rugged weapon which was famous for executing the Jewish race in the Holocaust.

      The Sub -machine guns of the Second World War were very favoured by many troops all over the world for different reasons. For it's size or it's capacity etc. The U.S. troops favourite sub- machine gun was the classic Thompson Sub- machine gun (Variants: M1928, M1928A1, M1 and M1A1), also known as 'The Chicago Type-writer', for it's use of the Gangsters in America. This weapon was mainly used by U.S. Sergeants in the army and was much loved by the U.S. Airborne forces (101st, 82nd Divisions) who had landed on D-Day and Operation Market Garden. They loved this sub- machine gun for it's Weight, Size and it's ''Raw'' hitting power which could tare a man in half. It's capacity was a 30 round detachable box (M1 and M1A1) magazine with a 45. ACP cartridge which was also used for the 45. Pistol. This was a much loved sub- machine gun by the US airborne troops and infantry. But was infamouse for it's usage of gangsters. It was complicated to make and slow to manufacteur but will always have a reputation of being one of the best Sub- machine guns in the world.

      The British used the Sten Sub- machine gun which had a 32 round detachable box magazine which was put in the side of the weapon. It was quiet a light weight weapon which was first used in 1942. And famously used for the British 1st and 6th Airborne divisions. The Soviet Red Army used the PPSH- 41 which was famously used at the battle of Stalingrad and had a 71 round drum magazine which could infiltrate the enemy and flank them easily by using this weapon. And the German army used the MP- 40 Sub- Machine gun which was used by Infantry and usec by the Waffen- SS which could tear men apart and clear houses thoroughly by using this SMG with it's 32 round detachable box magazine. The weapon also had a folding stock, similar the U.S. M1 Carbine paratrooper version.

      Personally, my favourite rifle is the M1 Garand Rifle and my favourite Sub- machine gun is the Thompson SMG. Hi- Ho silver!!!

      Very informative and well thought out hub Whitney. I vistied the Pearl Harbor Memorial back in 2002, and this is a good spot for any military history buff.

      Great info! I've always loved to study WWII, and this sure was a great read. I love the weapon list! It includes the MG-42 (which I am a fan of) as well as the Lugar. Just think... of how the world would be different if Hitler were successful *ponders*. If only Hitler had used his great knowledge for good and not evil *sigh*.

      Britain the "third allied country"? How about the first? The USA was the third, and a very reluctant member as well.

      Very interesting, I've been intrigued by WW II since I was young. It's interesting to see such a compact collection of weapons data, and the timeline is good also.

      German weapons killed our men on Omaha Beach but the two (!st and 29th) US division commanders set the stage for the chaos of the landings. We made 12 mistakes the Germans made one. The battle of Iwo Jimo was desparate and costly because the Japanese general had six months to correct for the German mistake and capitalize on the American predicatble plan. Artillery/mortars and bombs cause 80% of the battlefield casualties

      Interesting stuff! Don't forget, though, Czechoslovakia was invaded before Poland - March 15th 1939 Hitler marched into Prague. Great hub! :)
