What led to world war 3?
There was never a world war 3, and hopefully there never will be.
there were no battles that led to it , it started since Hitler came to power and decided to invade France and most of central Europe. It was named officially world war two when the U.S declared war on Japan after they bombed U.S . In order for a war to be considered a world war you have to have multiple countries fighting the exact same war.
General Eisonhower Sorry, Wrong War. Eisenhower led during World War II. The Alllies during World War I were lead by several commanders, as there was not a Joint Effort like there was in World War II. Sir Douglas Haig was the Commander of the British forces, for example, and Marshal Petain led the French.
