World The Allies and The Axis. A
World War II was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945 In which most of the world’s countries ultimately formed two conflicting military alliances, The Allies and The Axis. A state of war had emerged, involving more than 100 million people and taking the lives of around 60 million people. The Allied powers consisted mainly of Australia, Brazil, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, Soviet Union, United Kingdom, and the United States. The Axis powers consisted of mainly of Germany, Italy, and Japan. World War II started in 1939 when Germany invaded Poland.
Great Britain and France responded to the invasion by declaring war on Germany. While World War II has always been about the Axis vs. the Allies and Hitler’s sinister doings, it seems as the role of African Americans seems to be over looked.
