Do you think WW2 began when the first of the regional wars within WW2 started? If so, your answer is 7 Jul 1937, which was when Japan invaded China; some scholars actually date the invasion all the way back to 1931, when Japan occupied the northeastern region of China known as Manchuria, though they are a minority, as officially war was not declared between China and Japan until 1937.
In Europe, the cause of WW2 could be traced 20 years earlier. At the end of WW1, the Treaty of Versailles failed as an instrument to maintain peace as it seemingly served the agenda of depriving Germany of her status as a sovereign nation.
The post-WW2 era saw the decline of colonial powers, notably the United Kingdom, which set the way for the United States to rise as the new dominant power of the west. Another political outcome of WW2 was the formation of the United Nations, which hoped to succeed where the inter-war period League of Nations failed.
