This Weeks 80 Year Commemoration of the Start of WW2

World War Two was the most devastating tragic and desperate fight for freedom in world history ever. The start of the war in Europe is generally held to be 1 September 1939, beginning with the German invasion of Poland; the United Kingdom of Great Britain and France declared war on Germany two days later.

By Autumn of 1945 the Western democracies and communist East fought and defeated the Axis Triple Alliance of Germany Italy and Japan. A triumphant victory for the Anglo-American English speaking nations as well as the communist Eastern nations against the purely evil armies of the Triple Alliance of the Axis powers (Germany, Italy and Japan) in Europe, the Atlantic, North Africa, the Pacific Ocean and Asian territories in a huge and tremendously violent and destructive truly world wide conflict. This week world leaders gather in Poland’s capital, Warsaw to commemorate the start of this extremely bloody conflict on the 1st. of September, 1939. When Great Britain and France declared war on the evil dictator Adolf Hitler and his German Nazi controlled super power war-machine after he invaded Poland 80 years ago this week.
An immense struggle ensued with Britain the only combatant who stood alone against Hitler and Mussolini, the Italian Fascist dictator. After the fall of France in the summer of 1940, Winston Churchill, the British war leader made it his sole aim to defeat the Nazi war machine and Hitler with the defence of our nation in tenacious and defiant British bull dog King Henry Fifths longbows-men Battle of Agincourt Two Fingers taunt to the German bully boy fascist Nazi party and completely racist henchmen pigs and it’s purely evil mastermind; Adolf Hitler who reigned supreme in all Europe at the time, with only Britain and her Empire to stop him.

Churchill’s refusal to capitulate and give in with all around him calling for Appeasement, this tremendously brave Anglo-American British aristocrat and world-class statesman of the highest calibre helped saved Western democracy more than any man back then in the early years of World War Two.

What ensued with American and Russian intervention later in the war with huge economic industrial and military Allied superiority was Total Victory in Europe over Italy and Hitlers Germany. And, Victory over Japan in the Pacific and Asia by August 1945. It remains history’s bloodiest ever conflict and a truly World War which witnessed  the estimated deaths of 70–85 million people largely innocent civilians.
