What was World War 2?

In the 20th Century there were two ‘world wars’. Many countries were affected by the wars. The first war lasted from 1914 to 1918. Although it was fought mostly in Europe, people called it the first world war. The second world war began in 1939, and ended in 1945. It lasted for 6 years.

World war 2 was fought between two groups of countries. On one side were the Axis powers, including Germany, Italy and Japan. On the other side were the Allies. They included Britain, France, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, India, the Soviet Union, China and the USA.

Make Do and Mend

During the second world war, people were encourage to ‘make-do and mend’. If a chair broke, you mended it. If your sock had a hole, you got a needle and thread to repair it. Clothes rationing lasted from 1941 until 1949.

Well done for all this extra research, Saif! –Mr Geddes.
