What started World War 2? Who was in it?
Adolf Hitler wanted more land, especially in the east, to expand Germany according to the Nazi policy of lebensraum. Hitler used the harsh limitations that were set against Germany in the Versailles Treaty as a pretext for Germany's right to acquire land where German-speaking people lived. Germany successfully used this reasoning to envelop two entire countries without starting a war.
After having gained both Austria and Czechoslovakia, Hitler was confident that he could again move east, this time acquiring Poland without having to fight Britain or France. (To eliminate the possibility of the Soviet Union fighting if Poland were attacked, Hitler made a pact with the Soviet Union - the Nazi-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact.)
World War 2 lasted from 1939 to 1945. The countries of the world aligned with either the Axis powers or the Allies and battled in a total war.
So that Germany did not officially seem the aggressor (which it was), Hitler needed an excuse for attacking Poland. It was Heinrich Himmler who came up with the idea; thus the plan was code-named Operation Himmler.
When Germany attacked Poland on September 1, 1939, other European countries felt they had to act.
When was the end of World War 2?
WW2 in Europe ended with the unconditional surrender of Germany in May 1945, but the exact date varies depending on which of the victorious allies you’re dealing with. The German surrender was given to the Western Allies (including Britain and the U.S.) on May 8th and to Russia on May 9th. In the East, the war ended when Japan surrendered unconditionally on August 5th, signing their surrender on September 2nd.
