World War II Timeline

World War Two was the most destructive global conflict in history. It began when Nazi Germany unleashed ferocious attacks across Europe – but it spread to the Soviet Union, China, Japan and the United States.

Our World War Two Living Memorial website carries the previously untold and newly discovered stories of the men and women from different races, cultural backgrounds, and service experience who fought and contributed to victory

Listen to their untold stories

We have interviewed veterans from many different backgrounds. It’s worth taking a special look at the often neglected and ignored personal stories of volunteers from Africa and the Caribbean. All our captivating accounts tell of the veterans’ individual sacrifices and legacies through film, as well as letters.
