Some of the first shots of World War II were fired on Sept. 1, 1939 by an attacking Nazi German warship on Westerplatte, a Polish munitions depot that held off for many days. More than five years of brutal, global war followed, taking the lives of tens of millions of people. (AP Photo/Czarek Sokolowski)
