Captain Tom Moore World War 2

The world is cheering Capt. Tom Moore, a 99-year old WWII Veteran who served as an army captain & has raised more than 15 million pounds for the NHS charities in the UK by completing 100 laps in his garden, inspite of needing a walking aid.

World War 2 (1Sep 1939 – 2 Sep 1945)
World War 2 (WWII) was the deadliest war in human history with about 70 million people who lost their lives.
Although all the major countries were involved, the 2 main groups formed were:
1)The Axis Powers – Germany, Italy & Japan
2)The Allied Powers – Britain, USA, Soviet Union & France

How did it start & end?
⚔️ WWII started in Europe, when Poland was invaded by Hitler.
⚔️ Great Britain & France responded by declaring war on Germany. It ended with the unconditional surrender of Germany (Allies) in May 1945.
⚔️ This day is also known as V Day or V-E Day (Victory Day).

Cool Facts:
? To avoid using the German word ‘hamburger’, the Americans renamed it the ‘Liberty Steak’
? Due to the scarcity of chocolates during WWII, an Italian baker invented a cheaper alternative – Nutella!
