    1st.Sept.1939.Hitler invaded Poland which brought Britain & it's allies into the war.But it had been warming up for quite a few years prior to that.

    Here's some info:

    By convention the date generally given by historians is 1 September 1939, when Germany invaded Poland. It ended on 2 September 1945 with the surrender of Japan.

    The following other events are occasionally cited as possible starting points:
    3 September 1939: Britain and France declared war on Germany following the German invasion of Poland.
    7 July 1937: The Japanese invasion of China (the start of the Second Sino-Japanese War).
    1931: The Japanese invasion of Manchuria.

    Others argue that the two world wars are one conflict separated only by a "ceasefire."

    1939.  Two years later for the USA.
