The Second War against Lord Voldemort began after he started reacquiring some of his old strength back, and eventually resurrected (GF32). The first wizards to start fighting him actively were the members of the Order of the Phoenix (GF36). Over the following year, Albus Dumbledore repeatedly tried to warn the wizarding world of the Dark Lord's return, but was discredited and generally believed to be a madman (OP4).

When Death Eaters invaded the Ministry of Magic in order to retrieve the Prophecy, Cornelius Fudge, the Minister for Magic, was forced to admit the truth (OP38). Wizarding homes then received leaflets detailing basic measures for protection against Dark wizards (HBP3). Voldemort and his followers acted more openly after this, sending both Muggle and wizarding Britain into a panic (HBP1).

In August 1997, Voldemort gained control of the Ministry and thus of the whole wizarding world, including Hogwarts (DH8, DH11). In the lack of an organised resistance, his opponents mainly placed their hopes in Harry Potter, who had gone into hiding with his friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley and was searching for Voldemort's Horcruxes. On May 2, 1998, the Trio came to Hogwarts, quickly followed by Voldemort and his army (DH29, DH30). In the Battle of Hogwarts, Voldemort's remaining Horcruxes were destroyed and he was finally defeated by Harry Potter (DH31, DH32, DH34, DH35, DH36).
