My Father, who is mexican / american and flew B-24 Liberators in

the Pacific theatre during WW2, told me that there was a Mexican

squadren of P-51's piloted by Mexican pilots sent to Europe. They

did not do very well, He told me that the squadren suffered heavy

losses. I also believe I saw an old black and white movie about

this on a spanish channel while channel surfing.

To annonymous, Hitler didnt send them the letter to ask them to

invade America. That was in WW1 it was called the Zimmerman


Yes, Mexico was invloved in WW2. I found that at one point they

were even allied with the axis powers(Germany and Italy) They

wanted to strenghth their relationship with the US as well, so they

helped us out during the war. They had about 36 airman that they

sent into the war.

They did not take an active role in the war until 1942 after the

Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. As a result the United States and

Mexico created the "Joint Mexican-United States commission."1 The

commission`s main purpose was the creation of a plan for the

defense of Mexico and the south western United States. It was not

until May of 1942 that Mexico finally declared war Germany and

Japan after two Mexican tankers in the Gulf of Mexico by German

submarines. The Mexican government decided to created an air

squadron to fight in the Pacific. After a year of training in the

United States Squadron 201 arrived in the Philippines in April of

1945. The squadron was mad of of Flying P-47 Thunderbolt fighters

and they took part in long range reconnaissance and bombing runs

over Taiwan. There were 32 pilots, of which 7 died.1
