It would be easier to list the countries that DIDN'T fight. It was called World War because most of the world's countries were involved.
In November 1944 the Brazilian 1st Infantry Division, under the command of Major General Joao Baptista Mascarenhas de Morais, joined the American Fifth Army in Italy. The division served with distinction through the North Apennines & Po Valley Campaigns to V-E Day, May 8, 1945.

a lot of countries entered the war. I have been researching WWII in school and i have learned the most well-known are: Allied: U.S., Soviet Union, United Kingdom,Canada, Australia, Brazil and France. Axis: Germany, Italy, Japan, Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania,and Slovakia. Hope this is helpfull to many people

Mexico's spark into entering WW2 was when a German U-boat sunk two of Mexico's biggest oil ships while they where passing by the Florida Keys. Mexico then helped with the liberation of the Philippines. It sent an air force of about 60 airplanes (of which only 4 or 5 were gunned down) and a sizeable army.

Im doing a report on Ww2 and I've read that US, France and Britain were the allies

Not every country fought in World War II. The main countries that fought in World War II were the US, UK, France, and China, versus Germany, Italy and Japan.

In total, there were about 102 countries which fought in World War II - hence the name, "World" War. The two sides which fought the war were the Axis Powers, led primarily by Germany, Italy, and the Empire of Japan, and the Allied Powers, led primarily by the United Kingdom, France, and the United States.
