Best Answer

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.
