World War II, also referred to as the Second World War and regularly shortened to WW2 or WWII, was the massive conflict that saw the first usage of nuclear weapons in war by a superpower, and the formation of the United Nations.

WWII-era technologyEdit

Several examples of World War II-era weapons and vehicles make appearances throughout the Fallout series, having survived the Great War of 2077:


  • Images depicting events in World War II appear in the Fallout intro, and the war, especially as the setting for the first use of nuclear weapons, is often alluded to throughout the series.
  • In the Museum of History, there is a World War II exhibit, although it is inaccessible due to a collapsed ceiling blocking the entrance.
  • Abraham Washington is in possession of the United States' 1941 declaration of war against Germany.
