Summary Timeline of World War II History

I’ve always wanted to see a summary timeline of the significant events that occurred between 1933 to 1945, related to the great war of the 20th century.  I researched various web sites and put this timeline together where it highlights concurrent events in the European theatre, Pacific theatre, as well as the history happening in the US.  Think of it as a perspective of an American citizen observing what is happening in the world when watching Movietone News reels or reading their local newspaper.

Note: each event has a hyperlink to enable you to quickly and selectively “drill-down” into greater detail.  In addition, I’ve inserted an excellent YouTube video at the end that provides a geographical perspective.
