Topic: 1940s


The 1940s, also written '40s or 40's, and often called the Forties, is the period from January 1st, 1940 to December 31st, 1949.


My father went into the Canadian Navy to fight in World War II while he was still too young to be permitted to join, in the '40s. (When he intially went, he thought he was going to fight to protect and save his friends and loved ones. He later learned that that's not even close to what war is about.)

My mother was born in the '40s.

World War II ended in the '40s.
