How many soldiers fought in World War 2 from each nation involved?
There were dozens of different countries involved in that war. I think Winston Churchill gives a partial listing of this information in his memoirs. Michael Montagne
Your question is too great a task I think, but I can give you the official number of mobilised personnel for the major players;
USA 16 115 000 UK 5 900 000 Germany 20 000 000 Italy 3 100 000 Japan 9 700 000 Canada 1 500 000 Russia 29 000 000
The USSR never provided a figure on how many they mobilised, and the French count is too confusing to be of value here. Sorry.
Official numbers for USSR: 4 826 907 as of June 22, 1941 ( the date Soviet Union entered the war ); 29 574 900 mobilized between 1941 and 1945.
The numbers for France are as follows: 6 000 000 were mobilized in 1940; 480 000 participated in the liberation of North Africa and Italy (1942-); and 1 450 000 were in French uniform during the liberation of France (1944).
About 85 000 soldiers were in a French Army reconstituted under German orders after France was invaded by Germany, and meant to fight alongside the Axis.
Two of the countries above, France and Italy, also had internal resistance movements, i.e. civilians who fought on the side of the Allies but could not fight in uniform. About 400 000 French were at the core of that country's resistance movement. There were about 300 000 Italian resistants.

The questions is very hard to answer as most countries only gave estimates and some are confusing as it involved volunteers from other countries. If you include all the major …countries with several less major countries and minor ones, you get around 115 Million Soldiers, the majority were Soviets (34 Million) Nazi Germans (25 Million) and the US (16 Million). This matches the statistics of how many died, which was around. However, that doesn't mean 115 Million people were deployed, If you only wanted ones that were actually deployed then it would be around 70 Million military personal that served in WW2 as countries like the USSR had a lot of reserves just incase for a larger scale attack. . Australia 680,000 Belgium 800,000 Canada 780,000 China 5,000,000 Denmark 15,000 France 5,000,000 Greece 150,000 India 2,393,891 Netherlands 500,000 New Zealand 157,000 Norway 25,000 Poland 100,000 So. Africa 140,00 UK 4,683,000 US 16,353,659 USSR 20,000,000 Yugoslavia 3,741,000. Due to the wars vast and sometimes chaotic nature, most statistics are only estimates.
british empire - 8 720 000 France - 700 000 USA - 12 million USSR - 12 500 000 Germany - 11 million Japan - just over 6oo million I am unsure if this is troops left after the …war or ammount of troops rasied during the war, if it is troops left then the ammount who where killed should be added to those figures british empire - 400 000 France - 250 000 USA - 300 000 USSR - 13 and half million (but this figure can go any where up to around 25 million or over, russia kept there casualties secert for along time so we will never really now how many they lost) Germany - 1 600 000 Japan - 1 700 000
They were nicknamed "fat cows" because they were more obese than soldiers from other countries at war, and they were way heavier than the POWs.

Being 'openly gay' before the late 1960s in the U.S. (and most European countries, too) was a complete no-no. If any man had been obviously gay in the military there would hav…e been really serious trouble. There was an absolute **horror** of homosexuality that is now hard to imagine.. So, none were openly gay.. Comment . In Britain, Quentin Crisp - who was openly gay, with feminine mannerisms, who often wore make up and so on - had a bit of a rough time in 1939. He was subjected to a humiliating medical, after which one of the army doctors said, "Male and female created He them". Crisp's papers were stamped in large letters "Exempted from military service on grounds of SEXUAL PERVERSION".. That may convey something of the flavour of attitudes at the time - and they were no different in the U.S.
Answer . \nThe thousands of military personnel that served proudly from the state of Maine is not going to be on a specific listing anywhere.

Yelllow fever was also a player in the Pacific. In the African theater cholera and dysentary (diarrheal diseases) were major problems, and Rommels forces were desimated by diarrhea and it was a significant player in his defeat by Montgomery

Military history of Australia during World War II From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia At the time war was declared, the Australian armed forces were less prepared than …at the outbreak of World War I in August 1914. The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) was the best prepared of the three services, but was small and equipped with only two heavy cruisers, four light cruisers, two sloops, five obsolete destroyers and a number of small and auxiliary warships. The Australian Army comprised a small permanent cadre of 3,000 men and 80,000 part-time militiamen who had volunteered for training with the Citizen Military Forces (CMF). The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) was the weakest of the services, and few of its 246 aircraft were modern. While the Government began a large military expansion and transferred some RAAF aircrew and units to British control upon the outbreak of war, it was unwilling to immediately dispatch an expeditionary force overseas due to the threat posed by Japanese intervention. The first Australian shot of the war took place several hours after the declaration of war when a gun at Fort Queenscliff fired across the bows of an Australian ship as it attempted to leave Melbourne without required clearances. On 10 October 1939, a Short Sunderland of No. 10 Squadron, based in England for re-equipment, became the first Australian and the first Commonwealth air force unit to go into action when it undertook a mission to Tunisia. The Australian military was rapidly demobilised after the Japanese surrender. At the end of the war the military had a strength of nearly 600,000 personnel, of whom 224,000 were serving in the Pacific and 20,000 in Britain and other places. Demobilisation planning had begun at the end of 1942 with the final scheme being approved by the Government in March 1945. General demobilisation started on 1 October 1945 and was completed in February 1947. The process generally ran smoothly, though there were protests over delays at Morotai and Bougainville. Personnel were provided with training while they waited to be demobilised and the government provided post-demobilisation assistance with employment, loans, education and other benefits. Service women were given similar assistance to their male counterparts, but were placed under pressure to return to 'traditional' family roles. World War II led to significant changes to Australian society. Economically, the war accelerated the development of Australia's manufacturing industry and led to a large fall in unemployment. The impact of World War II changed Australian society, and contributed to the development of a more cosmopolitan society in which women were able to play a larger role. The war also resulted in a greater maturity in Australia's approach to international affairs, as demonstrated by the development of a more independent foreign policy and the encouragement mass immigration after the war.
