In World War II the first Allies were Britain and France, the axis powers were Germany and Italy. Germany took out France i think in the middle of 1940 and then in 1941 December 7th japan (by then they were also axis power) attacked the USA and in Pearl Harbor in Hawaii and brought them into the war china didnt realy contribute in 1940 but i geuss you could say the were also fighting but they were fighting japan since 1937. the Soviet Union was also fighting in (they had a truce with nazi Germany)1940 but not against the allis they were expanding their land by attacking Poland and all the baltic states and Finland. soviet union soon become an allie in 1942 i think or the end of 1941 because Germany suprised attacked them and they became hated enemies and soveit union sought out to DESTROY Germany and Hitler
