World War II can’t be summed up in one online study guide, but Shmoop is a good start. We’ve got summaries, timelines, and analysis of key figures and battles. Whether you’re studying for a history test or just want to brush up on your “Things I Really Should Know More About” list, Shmoop has you covered.

Since 2008, Shmoop has been a digital publishing company with a point of view. Our teaching method revolves around the basic idea that learning is often too hard—so we carry gallons of academic WD-40 to squirt on the tracks whenever we can.

We own 100% of our content and present both a consistent voice and a distinctive product offering. Our Learning Guides, Online Courses, College Readiness Prep, and Test Prep balance a teen-friendly, approachable style with academically rigorous materials to help students understand why they should care.
