The perception of World War I and World War II as two separate wars is quickly changing; instead, many historians are starting to think of them as one war that lasted 30 years. This characterization is apt in many ways, because both conflicts are so interconnected that it is difficult to see where one war ends and the other begins. However, there are still clear distinctions between the two events, and the immediate effects of World War II were much more extreme in three ways: politically, Germany was divided; socioeconomically, the economy was completely destroyed; and culturally, even though both periods saw a rise in new forms of literature and art, post-WWII society had the added task of confronting the Nazi past.
