It was fought mostly in Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan and Fascist Italy. There were no land battles in Japan's home islands. A lot of fighting took place in Russia. The Germans advanced through Poland, Belgium, the Netherlands, and France. Then the Allies pushed them back through the same countries. There were probably more battles in France than any other country.
It takes at least two sides to make a war. ...It was called a world war because a high percentage of the world's countries were fighting.
World War 1 was fought by Russia, the U.S., Canada, France, and Britain against Germany, Italy, and Austria-Hungary. The only one of these countries with a president was the U.S., with Woodrow Wilson. World War 2 was fought by the U.S., Britain, France, and Poland against Germany, Japan, and the Soviet Union. Again, the only one of these countries with a president was the U.S., with Franklin Roosevelt.
The world wont look like anyhting after world war 3 if it happens.Already the most powerful countries in the world have nuclear weapons and the only real way a world war can begin is if one of these countries like the usa is in it and a war with nuclear weapons will be a very quick one.Like Einstein said 'if world war 3 is fought with nuclear weapons then world war 4 will be fought with sticks and stones'.If that is true you can get an idea of what it will be like after world war 3.Chances are there wont be another world war in our lifetime anyway.
If you are asking what countries fought in both wars, Great Britain, France, United States, Russia, Germany, Belgium, Bulgaria, China, Japan, Australia, Hungary, Italy, Montenegro, Serbia, Greece...this is I'm sure only a few of the many countries that fought in both WWI and WWII but it gives you a good idea of which countries fought in both wars.
The Axis fought the Allies. The Allies were many countries, some of which were only involved for part of the war. Chief amongst the Allies were Great Britain, her Empire and Commonwealth, the USSR, the USA and France. But the Axis countries also fought countries such as Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Thailand (it was called Siam then), China, Greece etc. So World War Two was truly a world war.
Well to tell you the truth, i only know two countries that fought for freedom in the western world. (pretty sad huh XD) Ok, Mexico fought for independence for Spain and America fought for freedom from the Britich rule. (people id you know any more countries to add, please add them)
The United States has fought in World War One and World War Two, the only two world wars so far.
Only 32 countries can qualify for the world cup.
There has not yet been a third world war. Only two world wars have been fought.
Many people seem to believe there are only 193 countries in the world because the United Nations only has 193 representatives. However, there are 196 countries in the world.
There are 194 countries in the world although the UN only recognizes 192 of them.
they were both bloody wars and they both had a lot of countries envolved but the big difference is that war world 1 was mainly fought in trenches (trench warfare) and they only fought in Europe but in war world 2 they did not fight mainly in trenches and there were battles all over the world not just Europe and the war world 1 planes did not have covered cockpits and they had three winged and two winged aircraft and the world war two planes were single winged on both sides.
The Battle for Castle Itter was a major battle that was fought in Austria during World War 2. It was fought in the final days of the war and the only battle that the Germans and Americans fought together as allies.
its the only war called world war 1
The only reason there is war because of greed
World War I was only truly considered a world war because European countries relied on their colonies and its people to support the war. Colonial peoples were enlisted in the army and fought in battles in Europe. They were referred to as 'Boots' by the Germans because of their dark skin.
On September 1, 1939, Germany invaded Poland. Poland fought in World War II from the very beginning until the very end and was the only European country that never surrendered. On May 8, 1945, the Soviet and Polish armies conquered Berlin and won the war. Poland fought in the Battle of Britain, the Battle of Monte Cassino and fought for the freedom of not only Poland, but all countries.
Considering that there are more or less 200 countries in the world, and that currently only 40 of them are developed, then 80% of all the countries in the world are still developing.
Only about half of the worlds countries are small.
Only two countries have jointly hosted the world cup. They are Japan and South korea.
Over 4 million soldiers contributed, but only ~250,000 fought
First World in what sense? At its inception, First World was used in reference to countries which had joined NATO, Second World was used for Warsaw Pact countries, and Third World was for the nonaligned countries. In that context, only the United Kingdom and Canada would have been considered First World countries, as they were the only NATO members. Some sources would also cite Australia and New Zealand, which weren't NATO members, but were members of SEATO prior to its dissolution.
No, 32 countries have not won the FIFA World Cup. This year's 2010 FIFA World Cup will only be the 19th in history.
First World countries have the one essential thing most of your Third World countries lack - stability. An unstable country is going to descend into chaos, plain and simple.
The world wars are important because they involved large portions of the world, numerous countries, and the result changed the way we fought in war and the laws made in governments around the world. The world wars decided which country's were to run the worlds economy in the foreseeable future of that time. these influences are only now coming to an end and are causing the present economic crisis.
