Only a couple of decades after the end of the First World War–which was supposed to be the War that Ended All Wars–another, bigger, farther-flung, more destructive, and deadlier war began.
Today, you’ll learn about how the war in Europe progressed, from the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact and the invasion of Poland, to the Western and Eastern fronts, to VE Day and the atom bombs used in Japan.
Note from Among the Fray: Now that we have finished World History, we will be watching Crash Course’s European History series. An episode – in chronological order of course – will be posted with the morning news everyday. Enjoy!
