Re: Beginning of WW2
World War II is also confused by the Italians dropping out of the Axis in 1943 and the Soviets not declaring war on Japan until 5 August 1945. The full Axis and Allies were never at war against one another.
In terms of wars that spanned the globe WW1 isn't really the first and is probably not as global as some predecessors. Some 18th and 19th century conflicts between France and Britain extended to three or more continents and technically are global. For example The Seven Years War, War of Austrian Succession, War of Spanish Succession and Napoleonic Wars
