According to my Oxford Companion to WWII in strictly monetary terms here was the breakdown for the major players in their currencies:

UK-Pounds Sterling 20,500,000,000 US-$306,000,000,000 Germany-Reichmarks 414,000,000,000 Japan-Yen 174,000,000,000 Italy- Lire 278,500,000,000 USSR- Ruble 582,000,000,000

I'm not sure if the US figure even takes into acount the 50 billion in Lend lease aid that was given out.
