History of the Doctor Who Universe

August - September

  • 1st September - World War II begins on Earth as Germany invades Poland. The Doctor warned Hitler that Britain and France would declare war if he took this action. (NA: Timewyrm: Exodus)
  • As the war progressed, Reverend Wainwright, the vicar of St Judd church at Maiden's Point, began slowly to lose his faith as the allied bombing campaign inflicted huge civilian casualties on German cities. This doubt began to seep into his sermons and would eventually cost him his life when faced with the Haemovores four years later. (DW: The Curse of Fenric')
  • Commodore Millington and Dr Judson are both assigned to the base at Maiden's point at some point during the war. Judson developed the Ultima machine, a sophisticated military decipher device, while Millington became involved in stock piling a local poisonous gas/liquid secreted underground in the area under orders from the British high command. The two, friends for thirty years, become increasingly bitter and in their own ways unstable. Both become obsessed with local Viking myths and Millington constructed a room that is the exact copy the German decipher headquarters in Berlin. (DW: The Curse of Fenric')

Wesley Dodds no longer suffers from nightmares. With his new calling as a mystery man, he now sleeps the "Sleep of the Just".

However, Sandman Mystery Theatre #1 retroactively establishes that Dodds began adventuring as the Sandman as early as 1938, not 1939. Sandman (Volume 2) #1 1.89

World War II, or abbreviated as WWII, was an international human conflict that occurred on Earth between 1939 and 1945.

History

World War II was the second global military conflict in Human History. The war started when Adolf Hitler, Führer of Nazi Germany, invaded Poland. Britain and France were sworn to protect this country, and so war broke out. At this time, World War II wasn't a World War, it was just a war in Europe. But Hitler had invaded many of the bordering countries beforehand such as Austria, Czechoslovakia and Luxembourg.

Hitler and his 3rd Reich had efficiently recreated a new German "Reich" (Empire). Soon, the Soviet Union, which had sided with Hitler before the war, had tried to invade Finland. This war, quickly became another World War. Soon, other nations began helping the Nazi War effort, including the Empire of Japan, and Italy. But also, other countries started to join the Allied War effort as well, with the Soviet Union and the United States entering the war in 1941.

These countries may have been the entire reason the war was won by the Allies. But still, the Allies won by the skin of their teeth, for if it wasn't for the overwhelming amount of soldiers with them, Germany and Italy would control Europe, Africa and the Americas while Japan would control Asia and Oceania. With the help of the two atomic bombs being dropped on Japan, nicknamed "Little Boy" and "Fat Man", the world was launched into the Atomic/Nuclear Age. Over 72,000,000 people died on both sides in the six year conflict, many being civilians from the Soviet Union, the Republic of China and the Axis Powers.

The United Nations

Main article: United Nations

As a result of the Allied victory (the United States of America, Great Britain, France, the Soviet Union, and others) over the Axis Nations (Nazi Germany, Italy, Japan and others), the United Nations Charter was signed on June 26, 1945, marking the replacement of the defunct League of Nations and the creation of the United Nations. The United Nations were formed with a goal of international peacekeeping by means of collective security.

Types of ammunition still in use in the Human-Covenant War

  • .30 caliber (confetti maker)
  • .50 caliber (M41 LAAG)
  • 7.62mm Ammunition. (MA5B AR, MA5C AR, M808B Scorpion MBT Coaxial machine gun)
  • 90mm gun (M808B Scorpion)

Trivia

Miscellaneous

  • The paratroopers dropped behind enemy lines on D-Day and during Operation Market Garden inspired the UNSC's ODSTs, although the concept had to be rethought for Zero-G.
  • It may be possible that the Brute Spike Grenade was inspired by a German hand grenade known as the "the Potato Masher" or more specifically the "Stielhandgranate".

References in Halo

  • Colonel Herzog apparently researched World War II extensively.[2]
  • The war has been analyzed in comparison to the Human-Covenant War.[3]
  • The Maginot Sphere mentioned by the Forerunner in the Terminals is inspired by the Maginot Line, the French defensive fortifications along the Franco-German border stretching from the Ardennes to the Franco-Swiss border before the war.
  • John Forge's family has had a military tradition dating back to this time.
