World War II

World War II, or The Second World War, commonly abbreviated to WWII or WW2, was a global conflict that lasted from 1939 to 1945, between two military alliences: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most widespread and probably the most well-documented war in history. During the conflict, both sides made extensive use of clandestine radio equipment — commonly known as spy radio sets — to transfer information from spies to the homeland, to inform governments in exile and to send information and instructions to resistance groups in occupied countries.
