World War II or the Second World War took place over many continents: while the Pacific War took place in Asia and Oceania, the Europe theatre saw combat from September 1939 to May 1945. The war was by far the most destructive conflict in European history in terms of loss of human lives as well as historic architecture.
The European theatre included North Africa; see World War II in Africa.
