There are two teams- the Axis powers and the Allies powers. The Axis powers consisted of Germany, Italy and Japan and the Allies powers consisted of France, Great Britain, United States, the Soviet Union and China.

Leading Up to World War II

Two decades after the events of World War II Adolf Hitler and his army National Socialist Party, The Nazis, rearmed the nation and signed strategic treaties with Italy and Japan to continue his plan for world domination. In late August, 1939, Hitler and the Soviet leader, Joseph Stalin signed the German-Soviet Nonaggression Pact. Hitler later in September invaded Poland. Two days later, Britain and France declared war on Germany, which started World War II.

Germany eventually surrendered on May 8th (Hitler was already dead, as he committed suicide on April 30 in his Berlin Bunker).
