World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, killing an estimated 50 to 85 million people from 1939 to 1945. The large-scale ways in which WWII changed the world are well-known: the Holocaust's decimation of Jewish people and culture, the use of atomic bombs on Japan, and the wide swath of death and destruction caused by the Axis powers in Europe. Inventions we still use today, such as modern computers, Super Glue, duct tape, and even Tupperware, were devised to support the war effort. Read on for more on how World War II changed the world in ways both large and small.

World War II or the Second World War , often abbreviated as WWII or WW2, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945. It involved the vast majority of the world 's countries—including all the great

Frost and fog are set to be a hazard for some parts of the country over the coming days.

The Met Office which has urged everyone to “get the hot water bottles at the ready as it’s set to be a cold and frosty night”, has issued a yellow weather warning for fog for Friday and Saturday – which could cause travel disruption.

People in the East Midlands, East of England the North East Wales plus Yorkshire and Humber have been told to brace for the thick fog and freezing temperatures.

With fog patches set to spread overnight, the warning states that “some dense fog patches are possible, with visibilities perhaps dropping to between 50-100m in a few places”.

The biggest fog patches are likely to be across eastern parts of Wales, through to the Midlands and into eastern England, according to forecaster Greg Dewhurst who added that they are also “going to be across the rest of the country too but it maybe not as dense or as widespread”.

Warning people to be careful if they are out and about, he said: “If they are up early and through Saturday morning, if they are travelling or out for a walk, there will be some dense fog patches around.

World War II essentially pushed Europe backwards on the world stage and allowed the United States to achieve a hegemony over world economics, politics and cultural influence. Moreover, an argument can be made that WWII stimulated Europe towards its current efforts at unification. Treaty of Versailles of 1919 was a watershed in the demarcation of political boundaries in Europe, the continent which is described as a peninsula of peninsulas and islands. However, drastic changes were made to the political boundaries after WWII because of the USSR and defeat of Hitler with resultant fallout of

“Do take care when driving as there will be reduced visibility on the roads so you may not be able to see very far in front of you.”

The mist and fog patches have been given the chance to  form because light winds and high pressure across the UK means the air is not moving very quickly.

Mr Dewhurst said: “They will be generally slow to clear because the sun is not very strong at this time of year.”

Blighted visibility could bring  hazardous driving conditions in some areas, slower journey times for road trips and possible delays to bus and train services.
