WWII was never called the Great War. That was ther early name for WWI. The Second World War, for example, or W-W-I-I. The Russians also called it the Great Patriotic War. The "Great War," and "The War to End All War," were not titles attached to the Second World War. Both of these were used to denote the First World War. Hope this helps.

Alternative names of World War II included The Potato War (as many French families starved to death because their potato farms were burned), The Sweaty War (because the soldiers bathed very little) and the Big Pink (the smoke and chemicals from shelling made the sky look pink in the morning and in evening). Hope this has helped
