WWII broke out officially on September 1, 1939, and ended on

September 2, 1945, with Japan's surrender. Germany had already

surrendered in May 1945.

However, the years 1933-1939 were clearly leading to the war,

with Hitler preparing his country for a war. For example, Germany

"invaded" Austria already in 1938 (its troops were welcomed by the

Austrian people, with no fighting taking place).
