Germany lost her African colonies after WW1 so there were no colonies to occupy in WW2.

If you are asking about allies of the World Wars , only the USA did not have African colonies.

Americans fought and died with men from other countries.

The Versailles Treaty forced Germany to give up territory to Belgium, Czechoslovakia and Poland, return Alsace and Lorraine to France and cede all of its overseas colonies in China, Pacific and Africa to the Allied nations.

The us provided 60% of the ammunition.

Yes France had colonies during World War 2. Some of the colonies joined the Vichy Free French and some joined the axis forces (via the Vichy Free French). Most of the French Colonies chose to go against France once the Nazis took over France and the Vichy Free French was formed. They allied themselves with the Allied Forces instead. The colonies were French-Indochina (Viet Nam - allied with the Allied Forces); Chad, French Congo and Gabon (went with the Free French) Guadeloupe, Martinique of the West Indies and French Guiana joined the Free French in 1943 Syria, Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco were under Vichy French control until the Allied Forces liberated them, then they allied with the Allied Forces. French Polynesia joined the Vichy French right away French North Africa, French West Africa and French Equatorial Africa allied themselves with the Free French Forces under General Charles De Gaulle and they fought with the Allied forces against the Germans.

It is difficult to overstate the contribution of the Allied "Ultra" intelligence network to the Allied victory in Europe in World War II. Victories on land in the crucial period of 1942-1943, then for most of 1944, often resulted directly from the "Ultra" intelligence. The Allied victory at sea, secured in 1943 and setting the stage for the opening of the Second Front in 1944, was yet another result of "Ultra."

France was the only colony to actively ally with the colonies, other Euro countries silently hated Britain, but they didn't publicly aid the colonies.

The Treaty of Versailles radically reorganized the map of Europe, to the detriment of the German Empire, and restructured many of Germany's former overseas colonies. In every case, Central Power nations lost territory, and Allied nations gained territory, although some colonies were transferred to international control, and a number of European countries became independent.

About 140,000 New Zealanders fought overseas for the Allied war effort.

Article 22 of the Treaty of Versailles removed several colonies that the Germans had in Africa. The colonies' oversight were changed to a number of Allied nations.

Many troops from Britain and colonies, US , Canada and many smaller Allied countries.

Answer this question… Allied powers took over German colonies and profited from them.

The outbreak of the Seven Years' War in 1756, saw Great Britain, Prussia and their allied opposing to France, Austria, Spain and their allies. The war soon spread from Europe to the overseas colonies of Great Britain, France and Spain, triggering the start of the more or less concealed conflict, existing in form of skirmishes along the borders since 1754, between the 13 colonies and New France and their relevant Indian allied. That led to an increasing engagement of regular armies of both sides which gave to the hostilities the shape of a regular war.

After the Revolution of October, 1917, the Russian contribution to the Allied cause against the Central Powers pretty much dwindled down.

Resources and manpower. The French used a lot of manpower from their colonies. The 'white' British colonies (Canada & Australia) were highly committed to the war effort and provided huge numbers of volunteers (and later conscripts) who fought on the European front in such battles as Vimy ridge. India was less committed to the war effort, but due to it's population the small percentage of Indians who did volunteer still added up to a significant force. Unfortunately it was a force mostly squandered in the war against turkey due to mistakes by the British officers placed in command of it. Many of the Africans were only permitted to volunteer for the war near the end as their colonial overlords grew desperate for cannon fodder.

The Red Baron, Manfred Von Richtofen didn't actually make any "contributions to flight" in my opinion. He was an aristocratic fighter pilot who went out hunting the enemy (Allied pilots ) and killing many of them. Is that a contribution to flight.

The Romans established Latin colonies (settlements) at strategic points to have strongholds and to have a population presence there. The colonies played an important part on the Latinisation of allied peoples or conquered peoples.

The US and British provided the bulk of allied force sin the Normandy campaign which lasted until September 1st offically. There were also Canadians, Poles and Free French and FFI (french forces of the interior).

This is an opinion type question.The USSR made a great contribution to the defeat of Germany, however it is not true that they made a bigger contribution to the victory than all the other Allied nations.In fact, from August 1939 through June 22, 1941 the USSR was an ally of Hitler's Germany, and supplied much of Germany's food requirements! Even after the USSR was attacked by Germany, the USSR was not very cooperative with the other Allied Powers, and sometimes obstructive. They were also involved in the murder of Polish (Allied) military officers.The USSR suffered the most casualties of any Allied Power, fielded the largest Allied Army, and engaged the largest part of the German Army. However its contribution in terms of strategic airpower, seapower, logistics & economy were smaller than the western Allies. The USSR did not fight the Japanese until August 1945, when the Japanese were already defeated.

they allied the french and other countries in europe and planned to attack the british... later on the british finally surrendered.
