World War II is one of those rare subjects on which a worldwide unity in opinion is observed. Till date it is the most heinous and atrocious act ever happened in the history of wars and murders. When anybody thinks about that period, the first word that pops into their mind is “Nazis”. Nazis were nothing but the NSDAP party (German political party) led by Adolf Hitler. NSDAP was famous for its controversial and questionable warfare tactics. To highlight the one which strikes fear and grief simultaneously in everybody's heart is the Holocaust - swiping off around six million European Jews lives off the face of the earth.
It is an indisputable fact that World War II brought remarkable changes in the 20th century. Major leaps were taken in technological sectors of warfare. World War II is the most outrageous and atrocious war ever happened in the history. The exact number of casualties in the war is unknown; however, records state that around 50 million civilians and military officials were killed. The primary opponents were designated as the Axis nations(Germany, Italy, Japan and other smaller nations) and the Allied nations(Britain, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the United States of America). The Allies emerged as victors and significant post-war changes were observed including Women's Rights movement, termination of European Colonialism, and Civil Rights movement in the US. It's a known fact that the two superpowers – USA and USSR- rose after the conclusion of World War II to begin a cold war with each other which is still prevalent in today's date.
The time span of 1939 to 1945 marked the manifestation and culmination of World War II. Back then, Germany was ruled and governed by the most authoritarian dictator, Adolf Hitler, under the Nazi party(commonly abbreviated as NSDAP in German language). The political party took over the control of the country in totality which paved the way for one of the most excruciating period in European history. Around six million Jews were ruthlessly swiped off the face of the country. The tactics used by Hitler were highly controversial, making people question every last bit of humanity left in him.
