On September 1, 1939, German and Slovak troops invaded Poland thus starting the Secaond World War which lasted six years and took the lives of millions of people. 

The first to declare war on Gemany was France, followed by Great Britain, together with Australia, New Zealand, India, Canada and the Union of South Africa. 

Almost two years had passed before the USSR declared war on Germany after Hitler's troops invaded the Soviet Union in 1941.
