No world cup was hosted in 1942 because of world war II. 1946 has no world cup because of world war. As brazil and germany bid for 1942 world cup. they could not bid as there is world war. if not, brazil will most probably hosted the 1942 world cup.
people can find quite a lot of interesting trivia and article for this event.
