Model Answer 1:

Second World War is an important event in history that has affected almost all of the countries of the world. It is also known as World War || and was a global war. This war lasted from 1939 till 1945 and was the most widespread war in world history. Almost 30 countries were directly involved in this war dividing into two major power called Allies and Axis. It is estimated that more than 100 million people were involved in this war. This devastating war caused 50 to 85 million fatalities and became the deadliest conflict in human history.

The war started on September the first, 1939 with the event when Germany invaded Poland. Just after 2 days Britain and France declared war on Germany. There are many political reasons that led the World War || but the most prominent reason was when Hitler invaded Poland, the conflict arose. United States, Soviet Union, United Kingdom, France, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, Greece etc. were the main power of the Allies part while Germany, Japan, Italy, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria were the main power for the Axis.

This war involved Europe, Asia, Africa, Russia and most part of the world and because of the war the economy collapsed, industrialisation fell, people dies in great number, political aspect changed as an effect of the war and lots of nation had to reform their country. First, the nuclear bomb was used in this war and both parties invented and improved the war weapons. Most of the European countries had to suffer a severe economic crisis as the aftermath of the war, the United Kingdom had to abandon many of its colonial countries, a new political alliance had to form among nations.

This is, in my opinion, is the largest event in human history that shaped the world. The world today we see could have been different (politically and geographically) if the war would have produced a different result.

No other event in history has affected the world as much as this war did.
