During World War 2, women were involved in war work and as members of the military.
Most of the world war 1 was set in Europe and Central Asia was also involved
It was a world war because it involved countries from different continents - Europe, North America, Africa, Asia, Australia.
All of the continents, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, North America, and South America, with the exception of Antarctica, were involved in World War I.
Asia, North and South America, Europe, Australia and Africa were all involved in World war 1.
World War 1 never reached as far as South East Asia with most of the combat going on in the north (China).
As the name "World War" suggests, it involved most of the world. Major areas of combat included Europe, Africa, Asia, with some combat in North and South America.
How many Australians were involved?In Australia it was estimated that 993 000 men and women were involved in WWII
'Involved' as opposed to formally declaring war? On December 7th 1941 British dominions in East Asia were attacked (Hong Kong for example), as such I would think Australia was 'involved'.
North America and Europe, Australia also Asia, that is why it was called a "World War". There was also some fighting in Africa.
World War I expanded to Asia, Africa, and the Pacific for several reasons. For one, the countries involved in World War 1 has colonies in Asia and Africa. This included Tanganyika, which was under German rule. In addition to German East Africa, the British governed Hong Kong, which was physically located within China. To protect their respective colonies, the nations involved had no choice but to bring the war to these areas.
World War 2 was a world war because it was a war which involved most of the world, nearly all European and most of Asia and the US had some involvement with WW2 some were on a massive and some were on a small/minor scale.
