World war ii in europe began when hitler's nazi germany attacked poland germany had allies such as italy, hungary, bulgaria, and romania these european countries were part of the axis powers the countries that fought against germany and the axis powers in europe were called the allied powers. In order to open up a second front in western europe, the allies a quickly advanced through italy in france in 1943 b invaded normandy in historys greatest naval invasion c landed in the iberian peninsula and advanced through southern france d lured germany south to italy and invaded the german coast. The axis powers were one of two major military alliances during world war iithey consisted of germany, japan, and italy the opposing side, consisting of many countries including britain, france, and poland, was known as the allies.
The main factor that decided the outcome of world war i in favor of the allied powers was the entry of the united states in support of the allies. During world war 2, the axis powers consisted of: nazi germany, italy, japan, hungary, romania and bulgaria the axis powers were defeated in the second world war because of 6 main reasons. The three major axis powers — germany, japan, and italy — committed a host of catastrophic errors during the war but some of these miscalculations were considerably worse than others. The soviet union pressed the allies to open a second front in europe - that is, one in addition to the eastern front stalin regarded north africa and italy as a mere sideshow the 'second.
The main allied powers were great britain, the united states, china, and the soviet union the leaders of the allies were franklin roosevelt (the united states), winston churchill (great britain), and joseph stalin (the soviet union. 1the big four allied powers of world war ii were england, the united states of america, the soviet union, and france the involvement of many of the allies in world war ii were for the most part natural and inevitable, they were either invaded or had been threatened by invasion. Ww2 was much less connected to certain terrain than was ww1, especially as to the western front in france and belgium, the german armies swept right past the old trench lines of ww1, and the allies after the normandy invasion passed through some of those same lines only momentarily. With that in mind, here are the most egregious blunders made by the western allies during the second world war above photo: alfred palmer/owi/loc a few caveats before we get started. Starting with the invasion of sicily in july of 1943, and culminating in the june 6, 1944, d-day invasion of normandy, allied forces took the fight to the axis powers in many locations across.
The tehran conference, 1943 the soviets, who had long been pushing the allies to open a second front, agreed to launch another major offensive on the eastern front that would divert german troops away from the allied campaign in northern france finally, the three leaders issued a “declaration of the three powers regarding iran. The tehran conference was a meeting between allied leaders to discuss strategy in 1943, the first of two meetings of the big three roosevelt began calling for a meeting of the leaders from the key allied powers the meeting moved on to the planning of operation overlord (d-day) and the opening of the second front in western europe. Nazi germany and it's allies fought the soviet union for control of the city of stalingrad in southwest soviet union among the bloodiest battles in the history of warfare as a result decisive soviet victory, destruction of the 6th army, axis forces begin to decline in eastern front.
The battle of the bulge was one of the most deadliest and bloodiest battles of all the battles fought by the western allies during world war 2 it accomplished little after the german's began their offensive. Russia wanted the other allies to invade europe and put pressure on the axis from another direction this would mean that germany would have to divide their forces as well as supplies. Marshal joseph joffre proposed and his allied counterparts concurred that the offensives of the allied armies on the western front  should be delivered simultaneously or close enough in time so. World war i (or the first world war) was a global war which began on july 28, 1914 and lasted until november 11, 1918 the war lasted exactly four years, three months and 14 days.
The notion that the western allies did not want to open a second front in europe is a myth they abhorred communism and stalin, but after germany attacked the soviet union in 1941 churchill famously remarked that if hitler invaded hell i would at least make a favourable reference to the devil in. There the allied leaders, stalin, roosevelt and churchill, adopted a declaration of joint actions in the war against fascist germany and set a date for the opening of a second front in europe the crimean (yalta) conference of the three allied leaders was held in the livadia palace in yalta from november 4 to 11, 1945. Stalin had been demanding that the allies open-up a second front in europe churchill and roosevelt argued that any attempt to land troops in western europe would result in heavy casualties until the soviet's victory at stalingrad in january, 1943, stalin had feared that without a second front, germany would defeat them. At the time, churchill said a second front was impossible, but by the tehran conference, it was clear that the allies had to do something to take pressure off the soviet army it had been fighting the invading nazi forces on the eastern front, which was opened in the summer of 1941.
