Casualties and Losses



The German War occurred when Britain declared war on Germany after Germany, under Adolf Hitler, broke the Treaty of Versailles, the treaty formed after the Great War. Britain was later joined by its allies, called the Livre Coalition (Portuguese:Free). Germany later gained allies after helping a series of revolutions across Central and Eastern Europe, with National Socialist (Nazi) governments taking power.
