World War II, or the Second World War (often abbreviated as WWII or [=WW2=]), was a global war fought from 1939[[note]]Nazi Germany's invasion of Poland is generally accepted as the start date of World War 2, though several other conflicts that would be incorporated into the larger international conflict were already underway, and as the Soviet Union didn't get involved until operation Barbarossa in 1941 many Citizens of the former Soviet Union consider the German attack of 22/6/1941 as the start of World War 2 proper. Likewise the USA's self-obsession means that it's schoolchildren are sometimes, to this day, taught that the war only 'really began in December 1941' with the Japanese and German declarations of war upon the USA [[/note]] to 1945. It involved 62 out of the 73 existent states at that time, which eventually formed two loose, opposing military alliances: the Allies or Allied powers (China, France, the UK, the USA, the USSR among others) against the Axis powers (chiefly UsefulNotes/NaziGermany, UsefulNotes/FascistItaly and UsefulNotes/ImperialJapan).

* FinalSolution: [[TropeNamers Trope Namer]] and TropeCodifier. Nazis referred to ''die Endlösung der Judenfrage'', "the FinalSolution to the Jewish Question."
** It should be noted the image most people gained from the popular media (crematoria, burning pits, gas chambers, fierce guards with dogs, [[MadDoctor experiments on people]] and so on) comes from the final phase of UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust, the extermination of Hungarian and Transylvanian Jews, [[NightmareFuel when the death industry finally broke down overloaded with dead bodies]]. This is the plain reason [[Film/SchindlersList for which we have survivors to tell the tales]], because at that moment there were people to escape or survive. Previous campaigns of mass murder (euthanasia of the mentally disabled, extermination of the Soviet prisoners, extermination of Jews in Operation Reinhard camps in Poland) were so efficient they barely left any survivors.

* AmericaWonWorldWarII: The US's media depictions of the war are often accused of ignoring the contributions of other states, nations, and nation-states to (winning) the war - with the USSR's pivotal role in particular [[FanonDiscontinuity being almost completely ignored]] due to (lingering) [[UsefulNotes/HistoryOfTheColdWar Cold-War]] [[RedScare anti-Communist]] sentiment. Post-Soviet Russian media might now quite justly be accused of ''Russia Wins The War'' due to it ignoring both the contributions of the other republics that made up the USSR (Ukraine, Estonia, etc.. etc.) as well as all the other countries and peoples who fought The Axis. The historian Stephen Ambrose points out that the title of this trope is literally true, in that although (for example) Britain was nominally one of the victors, it survived the war with major bomb damage and in extreme debt, whereas America was the only allied nation that finished the war better off than it had started it.

** An inverse trope might well be 'Nazis Fight Alone'. The only Axis troops ever seen in most media are the Germans - the Italians very rarely make an appearance (aside from North Africa, but not always), and the Hungarians, Slovaks, Romanians, Bulgarians, Finns, and various SS volunteer units like the Northland (Scaninavians), Charlemagne (French), and Blue (Spanish) divisions are almost entirely absent. Quisling logistics troops including the Hiwis (Soviet citizens who served the ''Heer''), are also never seen.
