I’m trying to gather information about the separation of east and west Germany and World war 2. I have a list of things I’d like to know.
-How did the war begin?
-Major events of the war?
-How did Germany become divided?
-What were some of the consequences of the division?
-How long was the country divided?
-What brought about the reunification?
-How and why did this happen?
-What is the attitude in Germany today about the reunification?

You must realize that there are entire libraries devoted to thes questions. I suggest starting with the search ":wiki germany": which will give you the dates and history in broad terms.
I’m pretty sure you don’t want to read Winston Churchill’s 6-volume memoir of WWII.
