Best Answer

World War II lasted 6 years and 1 day from September 1st, 1939 with the German invasion of Poland, to September 2nd, 1945 with the forced Japanese surrender in the Pacific. Quite a lot happened in the UK in those 6 years. Much of the UK was damaged by bombing, and soldiers from the UK were wounded and killed. A large number of US, Canadian, Free French and Free Polish soldiers were based in the UK. There were shortages of food, fuel and everyday items due to the war.
