World War II (often abbreviated to WWII or WW2), also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945.

A state of total war emerged, directly involving more than 100 million people from more than 30 countries. Francis-von Wyttenbac.

The Second World War (book series). The Second World War is a history of the period from the end of the First World War to July 1945, written by Winston Churchill. Churchill labelled the "moral of the work" as follows: "In War: Resolution, In Defeat: Defiance, In Victory: Magnanimity, In Peace: Goodwill"

This book considers this 'alliance within an alliance', examining what has been an oft disregarded strand of the vast . It is the manner in which it operated throughout the Second World War and the pressures and challenges that it faced that will be the focus of this study.

This book considers this 'alliance within an alliance', examining what has been an oft disregarded strand of the vast system that was the British Empire. In one of the many wartime debates that focused on Imperial themes it was said of the Dominions that they were 'not conscripted allies like the satellites of Germany', but had come into the war of their own free will and could have left at any time.

During World War Two, France had the dramatic experience of occupation by the Germans and the legacy of this traumatic time has lived on until today, to the enduring fascination of historians and students. France and the Second World War provides a fresh and balanced insight into the events of this era of conflict, exploring the key themes of: Occupation as a social, economic and political phenomenon the Vichy regime and the politics of collaboration the 'resistance', resistors and its ideology the liberation the legacy of the wartime period.

The Second World Wars is an outstanding work of historical interpretation. Lively and proactive, full of the kind of novel perceptions that can make a familiar subject interesting again.

Swiss Aristocrats and the Second World War My Personal Voyage through History and the War in Italy This fast-paced voyage through history is a biography of an aristocratic family whose roots start at the end of the fourteenth century and terminate two years after the Second World War. This story starts in Sumatra, Indonesia, where my grandfather, Dr. Othmar Imhof, and his family lived for several years at the beginning of the twentieth century. He was the physician for the Dutch colony. Life was good, at least for the family. They had a beautiful home, fifteen servants (coolies), and a Chinese chef. Dr. Imhof worked close to eighteen hours every day. He was the head physician, chief of staff, and chief surgeon. He was overloaded with responsibilities. Their two children, Marguerite Luise and Othmar, were born in Sumatra. Toward the end of the First World War, the Imhofs had to return to Switzerland. My grandmother and the two children went first because Dr. Imhof had to satisfy his contractual duties with the Dutch. From this point this biography picks up the von Wyttenbach side of the family. It starts with Bertschi Wyttenbach in the thirteenth century and goes directly to Thomas Wyttenbach, the reformer (sixteenth century), and the massacre of the Huguenots in Paris, France, in 1572. You will also read how New Berne in North Carolina was founded in 1710. Back in Berne, the Imhof family settled in nicely. Maiti (Marguerite Luise) met Baron von Wyttenbach in the early nineteen twenties. They married in 1925 in the cathedral in Berne (the Münster). Maiti did not like to live in Switzerland. The cold winters and all the mountains seemed to suffocate her. I think that after having lived in Indonesia, this is quite understandable. After their honeymoon, the young couple decided to move to Italy. Tomi was offered a good position as director of a large property in the
