Adolf Hitler took control of Germany with his Nazi regime, Benito Mussolini took control of Italy, and Joseph Stalin took Russia with the fall of the Tsar family.

In 1939 WWII was officially kicked off with Nazi Germany invading Poland and Poland's allies declaring war on Germany. However, Germany shouldn't have had an army to take over Poland as a result of the treaty of Versailles. But none the less Germany still started another conflict in Europe.
As the war progressed the allied country of France fell to the Axis powers of Italy, Germany, and Japan. Also many cities in China were taken over by Japanese forces to acquire resources for their war effort.
The U.S. still had a policy of Neutralism and Isolationism as the war progressed. But a draft had been started to built an army to prepare for a war that may come. Also during this time the U.S. started the lend-lease act to lend supplies to allies in need. Also during this time Germany betrayed Russia by invasion and successfully turned Russia on them.
