The Second World War

The Second World War Postcard Collection

The war opened in 1939 with a resurgent Germany’s attack on Poland, bringing France and Great Britain into conflict. This spread and eventually Italy, Russia, Japan, the USA and others became involved. The war ended in 1945 after the dropping of the second atom bomb. The postcards explain two strategic operations of the war – the Allied invasion of Normandy in 1944 and the Battle of Arnhem in the same year.
